    Abstract: The present invention relates to a polyimide film and a preparation method thereof. According to the present invention, a polyamic acid solution having a high weight-average molecular weight may be obtained by adjusting viscosity and solid content of the polyamic acid solution, and thus, a desired polyimide film may be prepared therefrom. Furthermore, since a length of carbon chains rearranged during graphitization is increased, a graphite sheet having excellent thermal conductivity can be prepared from the polyimide film of the present invention. Also, since the polyimide film has improved windability by further including inorganic particles as a filler, it may facilitate the wind operation.

  • Patent number: 9090751
    Abstract: Thermally conductive thermoplastic resin compositions are provided containing thermoplastic resin and thermally conductive filler and fibrous filler, along with articles made therefrom. In certain instances when the thermally conductive filler and fibrous filer are more restricted, and other ingredients are present, the thermally conductive composition exhibits an improved volume resistibility and is suitable for fabricating a chassis for LCD display. Also described are the thermally conductive resin compositions, especially when the polymer is LCP. Such compositions are useful for items such as electrical and electronic housings requiring highly thermally conduciveness.

  • Publication number: 20150125646
    Abstract: Thermally conductive polymer materials having thermally conductive charges and polymer network compositions characterized by the fact that the network is able to reorganize by exchange reactions that allow it to relax stresses and/or flow while maintaining network connectivity. As a result, the polymer network is characterized by its finite viscosity at elevated temperatures in spite of the crosslinking. These characteristics provide such materials remarkable properties for use as thermal interface and notably improved adhesion, self-repairing, in addition to greater processing flexibility, better mechanical properties, improved chemical resistance.

  • Publication number: 20150118505
    Abstract: A method of producing a heat conductive sheet without using a high-cost magnetic field generator. This is achieved by allowing a large amount of a fibrous filler to be contained in a thermosetting resin composition, so that good heat conductivity is obtained without applying a load that may interfere with the normal operation of a heat generating body and a radiator to the heat generating body and the radiator when the heat conductive sheet is disposed therebetween. The method includes: a step (A) of dispersing a fibrous filler in a binder resin to prepare a heat conductive sheet-forming composition; a step (B) of forming a molded block using the prepared heat conductive sheet-forming composition according to an extrusion molding method or a die molding method; a step (C) of slicing the formed molded block into a sheet; and a step (D) of pressing the sliced surface of the obtained sheet.
