    Abstract: An enhancing agent for increasing heat transfer efficiency is disclosed, which is an additive composed of a nano-scale powder and a micro-scale powder that is to be added into a heat-transfer fluid circulating in an heat exchange system or in a coolant circulating in a cooling system for enhancing the heat conductivity of the heat-transfer fluid or the coolant while helping the tank and the fluid passages used in those systems to maintain clean, and eventually enabling those systems to operate with improved heat dissipation effect. By adding the aforesaid enhancing agent into a cooling system of an internal-combustion engine, the heat shock inside the engine that is originated from the fuel burning in the engine can be reduced, resulting that not only the amount of green house gas emission is reduced, but also the chance of engine juddering that is generally originated from poor heat dissipation can be decreased.

    Abstract: The present invention provides a thermally-conductive organic additive which (i) is an organic polymer, unlike a thermally-conductive inorganic filler such as ceramic, metal and a carbon material, (ii) is capable of imparting thermal conductivity to plastic by being added thereto, (iii) can reduce the weight of a composition even when added to a resin in a large amount, without causing abrasion on molds and deteriorating an electrical insulation property of the composition, and (iv) provides the composition with excellent molding processability. The present thermally-conductive organic additive includes a liquid crystalline thermoplastic resin which has a mainly-chain structure, wherein a main chain of the liquid crystalline thermoplastic resin contains mainly a repeating unit represented by the general formula (1): -M-Sp-??(1) wherein M represents a mesogenic group; and Sp represents a spacer, the liquid crystalline thermoplastic resin itself having thermal conductivity of not less than 0.45 W/(m·K).

  • Patent number: 8142687
    Abstract: A method for selecting materials and processing conditions to prepare a heterogeneous structure in situ via the reaction of a homogeneous mixture of a reactive organic compound and a filler, which may then optionally be sintered. The method is employed to provide a heterogeneous composite possessing exceptionally high thermal and/or electrically conductivities for a given concentration of conductive filler. The choice of materials as well as processing conditions employed, as will be described below, have a strong effect on the rate domain formation/heterogeneity of the structure formed, the extent of filler particle-particle interactions within filler-rich domains, and ultimately the thermal and/or electrical conductivity. Proper choice of these conditions can lead to composites having enhanced properties at a reduced bulk filler concentration.
