HeatSORB - The New Thermal Management Material from Rogers

Rogers Corporation has introduced HeatSORB, a proprietary phase change material that addresses thermal management challenges in portable electronics. HeatSORB is a unique material capable of consistently absorbing large amounts of heat within a very specific temperature window.

Electronic components generate heat during the course of operation, raising the temperature of the device. HeatSORB captures that heat, allowing the device to remain cool in the user’s hand. This mechanism delays CPU temperature ramp and overall device temperature rise, resulting in improved user comfort and device efficiency. When the device is not in use, HeatSORB releases the thermal energy and regains its ability to absorb heat in the next cycle.

HeatSORB leverages an immobilized compound which requires a large amount of enthalpy to transition from one physical state to another. During that process, the material absorbs heat while preventing that heat from leaching into the electronics. The formulation is also designed for reliability, meaning it remains effective throughout the life of the device, making overheating a thing of the past.
