Copper Heatsinks

Bluecore offers a range of copper heatsinks, both standard and custom, produced by a variety of methods including forging, stamping, skived fin and soldered fins.

Copper has long been the high-end heat sink of choice due to its high thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, pure copper has a thermal conductivity about twice that of extruded aluminium. Applications for copper heatsinks include computing, telecommunications, medical and military / aerospace.

It is worth remembering that while copper can offer a more effective cooling material than aluminium there are some downsides to using copper, including high material cost and weight, meaning it is not always viable for every application. Bluecore would only recommend using a copper heatsink where there is a high forced airflow or where the heat source is only covering a small percentage of the heat sink base.
