More than 80% of high and intermediate power LEDs and a large percentage of PCBs utilise heat sinks to dissipate surplus heat. Traditionally, aluminium heat sinks laminated with insulators incorporating printed circuits have been used.
KeraCore™ is a new concept from KeraNor that eliminates the need for multiple component heat sinks, and can be used both as heat sink and PCB.
KeraCore™ heat sinks are more thermally, mechanically, electrically and chemically stable than aluminium. LEDs exhibit a higher luminosity of up to 20% using ceramic instead of aluminium heat sinks. In addition KeraCore™ provides real, life-time value: not only are ceramic heat sinks more efficient and durable than aluminium, but they are also cheaper to manufacture.
KeraCoreTM is available in a range of thicknesses from 0.75-5.0 mm; we also offer alternative thicknesses and shapes to suit specific customer requirements. Our products are coded and vary by type, material and thickness as follows:
