BlueCore Heatsinks logo



For ease of design and to keep tooling and manufacturing costs to a minimum, Bluecore Heatsinks offer a wide range of standard extrusion profiles. These profiles can be used for many different applications from computer and industrial through to high end medical, military and aerospace. All of our profiles are designed with optimum cooling in mind, greatly reducing system temperatures and increasing MTTF and system reliability. These profiles can then be machined and customised to suit your needs, meeting the specific demands of your application.

Interface Materials

Bluecore Heatsinks utilize a range of thermal interface materials that are specifically matched to your application and budget requirements. Choosing the correct interface material is an integral part of the thermal system design, it allows for a far more effective thermal bond between the heat sink and the device being cooled. This is done by increasing the co-planarity and contact area between the two contacting surfaces which allows for greater ease of heat transfer. Some of the main considerations when choosing a thermal interface material are the thermal and electrical characteristics, electrical isolation and temperature range.

Heat Pipes

Heat pipes are a method of transferring large amounts of heat where there is a small ∆T (temperature difference) between the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ ends of the heat pipe. The great advantage with heat pipes are that they offer much lower thermal conductivity than can be achieved with a solid conductor, they are far more efficient than an equivalent cross section of copper, for example. Heat pipes contain no moving parts that can wear out, so system reliability is very high and they require no power to operate them.

 Attachment Options

Attachment of the heat sink to the device generating the heat is a critical function in improving the thermal performance of the system. The attachment method has a direct impact on the efficacy of the cooling solution and it can also have adverse affects in terms of manufacturing costs and labour time. We understand that selecting an attachment method is a combination of meeting the needs of your specified environment, available space, thermal performance and cost. Bluecore Heatsinks offers a range of attachment methods that allow flexibility in your design while still maintaining a secure thermal contact to the device.
