AISMALIBAR invites you to spot new model vehicles at the North American International Auto Show using Cobritherm Ultrathin and Flextherm Insulated Metal Substrates in their lighting systems. Some vehicles on display using these products are Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Ford Edge, BMW 6&7 Series, Audi Q3 & Q5 and VW Touran. The North American International Auto Show is held in Detroit, MI from January 8-22, 2017.
Jeff Brandman, President of North America adds, “We are excited to see the newest Aismalibar product offerings on display as part of cutting edge automotive lighting systems from some of the top manufacturers in the world. The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is the pinnacle event for the automotive industry and we are proud to see our products hit the floor at the consumer level.”.
Cobritherm Ultra-Thin material has an innovative Ultra-Thin dielectric layer that provides higher thermal performance and excellent working temperature. With a thickness of only 35 microns, this new product reduces thermal resistance down to 0,10 Kcm/W (0,17 Kinch/W), which offers excellent thermal dissipation conditions for high power LED assembly.
Flextherm is ideal for manufacturing conformable metal printed circuit boards. It can be bent after production while maintaining the initial dielectric strength in between its conductive layers (Al and Cu). The flexible properties of this material enable it to conform to both the positive and negative radii, allowing the product to adapt to the demands of increasingly complex MPCB designs.
Cobritherm has been approved by top OEMs around the world with a focus on the automotive, lighting and power electronics industries. It has collected excellent results in endurance testing and has the UL Recognition as one of the best insulated metal substrates after 60,000 hours.
AISMALIBAR was one of the first IMS laminate manufacturers in the world and was the first in Europe. AISMALIBAR is proud to introduce their material to the North American market in 2012. Their product IMS Cobritherm ® is a qualified and recognized Insulated Metal Substrate which gives the best thermal management solutions with high thermal conductivity, low thermal impedance and high dielectric capacity. AISMALIBAR has implement a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (High Pot Test) to all IMS laminates coming out of their plant. This is the only way to insure the dialectical strength is perfect and that production problems are detected before PCBs arrive to the end user.
