Thermal Straps

Lightweight k-Core® flexible straps provide a natural conduction path for cooling without adding structural loads to spacecraft components. And they’re lighter in weight, smaller in size and offer better conduction than traditional thermal solutions. k-Core® thermal straps perform effectively with aluminum encapsulant thicknesses of as little as .002 inches. Thermal straps are ideal for cooling sensitive spacecraft components by dissipating high heat loads without any maintenance.

k-Core® thermal straps also show increased conductivity at cryogenic temperatures and they’ve been proven effective in dissipating heat from high-powered electronic components.
