Electronics thermal management innovator Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd has
announced that UL® has given recognised status to its Nanotherm®
Laminated Copper (LC) thermal management products.
The recognition assures that the products have been found to be
effective and safe after being subject to tests by UL International (UK)
Ltd. The environmentally-friendly thermal management substrate solutions
are enabling customers to add another high-performance material choice
to their design tool box. The Nanotherm® LC material not only allows the
customer to create a design based upon a conventional PCB, but also the
ability to add the circuit to any 3D shape - creating a Circuit-on-Heat
Our unique nano-ceramic materials make electronic and LED devices shine
brighter, last longer or function far more efficiently. We provide
solutions to complex power consumption problems in the automotive,
industrial and consumer domains, with a technology portfolio that
includes Nanotherm LC (Laminated Copper) - a high-performance MCPCB
(metal core PCB) for thermally challenging electronics.
Steven Curtis, Cambridge Nanotherm's Chief Engineering Officer,
commented, "This is fantastic news for ourselves and our customers. It
gives them the confidence to use our materials in their thermally
challenging designs knowing that they have met UL's stringent electrical
and flammability standards."
Nanotherm® ceramic is grown on the surface of aluminium to create a
dielectric layer directly onto the surface of an aluminium substrate.
The nano-ceramic dielectric layer is between two and 10 times thinner
than the competition and achieves an industry-leading thermal resistance
of 0.014 oCcm2/W. The dielectric has a thermal
conductivity of 7 W/mK which is 2-3 times more effective at heat
dissipation than conventional MB PCB (metal back printed circuit board)

In 2013 the company was recognized with a prestigious Frost &
Sullivan award for innovation in the thermal management of LEDs. The
company was the UK winner of the 2011 Clean Tech Open Competition,
sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank, TSB and Carbon Trust. The company was
supported by TSB, EEDA New Anglia LEP and ERDF grants and was a member
of the Carbon Trust Fast-track Entrepreneur Programme. Since 2011,
Cambridge Nanotherm® Ltd has been financially backed by Enso Ventures.
