Make your product Powered by Panasonic

You are the visionaries. The engineers. The designers. The architects of the next dimension. We are the makers of your building blocks. Panasonic manufactures products that efficiently diffuse heat in today’s world of compact electronic devices. With Panasonic Electronic Components, enter the next dimension of thermal management.

What is PGS?

PGS is an ultra-thin, lightweight, graphite film with a thermal conductivity high enough to release and diffuse the heat generated by heat sources such as CPU’s, processors, power amplifiers and cameras. Developed by Panasonic engineers, this synthetically made material was named Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet or PGS. With a thermal conductivity up to four times greater than copper, PGS is extremely pliable and can be applied to heat-source shapes even in high density mounting situations.

Thermal Management Options

Ideal for providing thermal management / heat-spreading in limited spaces or as supplemental heat-sink interface in addition to conventional means, PGS is light-weight, flexible and can even be cut into customizable shapes to protect any electronic device.

Standard Pyrolytic Graphite Sheets provide excellent thermal conductivity that can withstand temperatures up to 400°C! PGS is also available with additional adhesives and laminants to provide extreme high heat resistance, insulation and stability within an application. Please review the PGS Selection Guide in this brochure for complete details.

PGS Features At-A-Glance
  • Thermal Conductivity: 700 to 1750 W/(m-K)
  • Offers thermal conductivity two to four times that of copper, three to seven times that of aluminum
  • Lightweight: specific gravity of 0.85 to 2.1 g/cm3
  • Flexible and easy to cut or trim
  • Withstands repeated bending
  • Low thermal resistance
  • RoHS directive compliant
  • Plain PGS Sheets are now available with individual separator sheets, which provide ease in handling!
