Preparation of Spherical Alumina Thermal Paste and Its Thermal Conductivity


The key to any electronics design is choosing the best thermal paste. Engineers are not always clear about how to obtain the best thermal conductivity. Here’s a guide to help you get started.

Spherical thermal alumina

Use paste to do the job.



Abstract


A variety of synthetic parameters were examined to determine how they affected the morphology and rate nitridation rates of AlN particle alumina. Temperature had a significant effect on the rate and direction of nitridation. The formation of liquid Ca-aluminates at higher temperatures was greater than that of the nitridation. Additionally, the produced alumina particles had a spherical shape. This allowed for easy material transportation through the liquid.



According to the invention, the thermal conductivity of roundish-alumina particles was noticeably improved. It could be because the particles resemble coarse corundum particles which have favorable flow properties. Moreover, they can be incorporated into high-thermal-conductivity rubber or plastic.



Additionally, roundness is promoted by the inclusion of the roundness enhancementr in the coarse-alumina particles. To enhance coarse alumina particles’ flow characteristics, this roundness enhancer can be used in combination with other agents. This enhancer promotes the growth of AlN particles via the dissolution-precipitation mechanism. Via the same mechanism the smaller AlN particles stimulate the growth and development of larger AlN particle.



Two-dimensional graphene sheets are also useful in increasing the thermal conductivity and heat transfer of alumina. The two-dimensional graphene provides faster routes for phonon transport. You can decrease the thermal barrier resistance of the alumina particle.



The actual amount of agents that must be used in the manufacturing process will depend on the size of the alumina. The preferred range is 3-20 mass%. Particle size is affected by several parameters like the heating furnace used and the time taken to heat the material.



Preferably, the amount of aluminum hydroxide added to the Alumina particles should not exceed 5-30% mass %. You can combine it with the aluminum particles of the rubber/plastic combination to increase thermal conductivity.




Different methods


The invention’s spherical aluminum powder can make a wide range of resins including phenol, silicone, and polyolefin. The powder can be used to fill resins with good insulation and is therefore suitable for such uses. This powder is also low in alpha and uranium. They can protect the resin’s mechanical properties from deterioration. The spherical powder of alumina can be used to cool electronic components and in the resin as a filler.



In the present invention, a process is described for making spherical alu powder. This can be done by heating an aluminum hydroxide powder solution slurry in a flame. The raw material feed pipe is where the powder is introduced. Combustible and support gas are the components of the flame. The powder surface is coated with an inorganic oxide coating due to thermal decomposition. Finally, the powder can be collected and dried.



The present invention allows the manufacture of high-quality, high-quality spherical Alumina Powder with high productivity and high collecting efficiency. Also, the powder has a larger specific surface. This powder has an approximate specific surface area that is 0.6 m2/g. D50 is the average particle size for spherical powdered alumina. It measures approximately 2.8 mm.



It is quite sharp in terms of its particle size distribution. D50 may have a particle diameter of up to 70mm. The ratio D50 to Dbet in the spherical-alumina powder of the present invention ranges from 2.7 to 10 Powder should have a preferred sphericity higher than 0.90.



Powders with a maximum thermal conductivity of 7 +-0.3W/m*K have a particle size between 3 and 20 mm. The powder’s sphericity should not be less than 0.90 in the range of particle size from 3 to 20mm.



The present invention contains a small amount of uranium in the spherical particles made from alumina. It has a uranium content of about 10 ppb. Uranium is preferred for the encapsulation of semiconductors. It is possible to quantify the amount of uranium in a glow-discharge mass analysis.

There have been many processes to make alumina particle and they are being used in different fields. Some fields use alumina particles as fillers or sealing materials for electronic components, lapping materials, and aggregates within refractory material. Other fields use alumina particles as additives to composites for sealing, in particular. Alumina’s excellent thermal conductivity as well as electrical conductivity make it a great choice for many applications. Many types of alumina are employed in glass ceramics, seals, sealing material, and high-temperature conductive heat sinks.



Diverse techniques were developed to create spheres of alumina particles. Alumina powders are obtained from chemical synthesis AlN powders. At 1800°C, the powders were prepared under different N2 pressures. After the powders were synthesized, they were pulverized. Particles pulverized have a median particle size less than 120 mm. These particles also exhibit excellent flow characteristics.



In order to promote the growth of AlN particles, the powders were subjected to the dissolution-precipitation mechanism. On the surfaces of larger particles, small AlN particles were dissolved. At 1800 °C, AlN particles’ morphology changed. AlN particles were spherical at 1 MPa N2 pressure. AlN particles did not have smooth surfaces. This caused considerable damage to the kneader.



For a short time, then the particles are exposed to high temperatures. These products then undergo a well-known process of pulverization. The thermal conductivity increases as the product is crushed. 15 % has a temperature of 6.5-7.03 W/m*k. Spherical particles possess the highest surface-free energy.



With the addition of additional agents, the temperature conductivity of the particles will increase. However, depending on what heating furnace you have and how much time the furnace spends in it, the agent amount that should be used will differ. The agents’ effective concentration is generally between 3-5 and 5%. Aside from the effective concentration of the agents, it is also dependent on the size of the sintered aluminum used.



Additionally, the alumina particles made by the present invention are preferred to be integrated into plastics or rubber. The use of the particles produces a high-thermal-conductivity rubber or plastic composition.




Discussion


Thermal conductivity of thermal grease was enhanced by the use of alumina and two-dimensional Graphene as filler additives. The combination of graphene and alumina can not only improve thermal conductivity but also increase phonon transportation and thermal boundary resistance. It is compact, and allows heat flow to be facilitated by the two-dimensional structure.



Thermal conductivity increased with increasing concentrations of solid phases. Thermal conductivity increased 20 percent by adding 5 vol% copper powder. The thermal conductivity maximum of thermal grease was 3.45 W/m*K, even though graphene added only 1 wt%.



The mixture of copper powder and alumina was used to make a commercially viable thermal grease. Thermal conductivity was greater in alumina with copper dust than it is without. Addition of graphene to copper powder increased the thermal conductivity 18 times, or almost 106 %. Mixing copper nanopowders and silicon oil with increased thermal conductivity also improved it.



Copper powder added to graphene and aluminum increased their thermal conductivity by 4.5 W/m*K. This is in comparison with silicon base. Additionally, graphene containing alu increased in thermal conductivity by 3.2 W/m*K.



The aluminum plate-based nLM–THEMs showed In and Ga. They were stable up to 60°C, and they had high thermal diffusivity. The electrical insulation was also excellent. They were also stable in moist conditions. They had a stable anti-corrosion property. They were also resistant to corrosion from aluminum, glass, and plastic.



The nLM–THEMs have stable electrical insulation and passive heat exchanging through rapid heat loss. These materials also exhibit stable thermal conductivity when subject to humidity. The composite will have a greater viscosity if it contains a lot of AlN. A composite with over 80 wt% Al 2 O 3 is likely to lose its mechanical properties.



The combination of two dimensional graphene, alumina and other materials can create a small thermal network structure which provides heat flow routes. Two-dimensional graphene, boron Nitride, and other materials can increase thermal conductivity. Alumina filler particles could also prevent graphene from aggregating. One reason thermal grease lacks fluidity is because of this.
