Lightweight, chemically inert and performance similar to extruded or cast aluminum in select applications. Custom sizes, shapes, and fin spacing/geometry are available. Please contact us for details.
100mm x 100mm mounting surface. Easily scalable in the z-direction for any desired length.

Infill: 100% (should be all perimeters anyway)
Must be printed with a 0.4mm nozzle in the orientation shown above for best results
Make sure your TCPoly filament is dry, and print slower than usual (30mm/s)

Use thermal tape or TIM for best performance
The plot demonstrates the impact of thermal conductivity on the cooling power of a heat sink under a natural convection cooling regime. With identical geometry, a TCPoly 3D printed plastic heat sink (6 W/m-K) can perform within 5°C of an Aluminum heat sink, despite significantly lower thermal conductivity. This is because heat removal under natural convection is often limited by convection as opposed to conduction.
