The more advanced Boyd heat spreaders include our encapsulated graphite which utilizes thermal annealed pyrolytic graphite encased in a thermally conductive alloy such as copper or aluminum. These solutions are light weight, passive and can be manufactured in complex geometries.
Heat spreaders can also be integrated into complex assemblies or geometries for high performance chassis or enclosures where internal volume is at a premium. Boyd Corporation’s k-Core® technology creates extremely lightweight heat spreaders utilizing encapsulated graphite.
These enclosures are popular for space and aircraft systems as they add structural integrity and environment protection as well as improved cooling without adding weight. Enclosures can be further optimized with the addition of sealing and protective materials or mechanical additions such as fins or ducting.
