Dow Corning 340 Heat Sink Compound from SkyGeek is designed to penetrate deeply to lubricate your aircraft’s moving parts. Heat Sink 340 is a grease-like silicone fluid that is thickened with metal oxide fillers for better performance and protection in high-heat situations. It promotes a high level of thermal conductivity during flight and is stable at high temperatures. It also has a low bleed rate. Dow Corning 340 lubricant is best used applied to the base and mounting studs of transistors, diodes and silicon-controlled rectifiers. The silicone lubricant also serves as a highly effective thermal coupler for many heat sink devices where it helps maintain a positive heat sink seal which improves heat transfer from the electrical/electronic device to the heat sink or chassis.
Use Dow Corning 340 Heat Sink Lubricant in a variety of aerospace and mechanical applications. The formula is suitable for a wide range of aircraft engines where heat sink properties are required. It can also be used as a high-voltage corona suppressant, nonflammable coating in connections for flyback transformers and TV sets and similar applications. The compound resist changes in consistency at temperatures up to approximately 350°F (177°C) for more reliable performance.
Dow Corning 340 Heat Sink Compound is sold in a five-ounce (142 gram) tube and is easy to apply. The versatile lubricant has a shelf life of 60 months from date of manufacture, so you’ll have plenty of time to use it up. Refer to the product packaging for "Use By" date. Order Dow Corning 340 Silicone Heat Sink Compound from SkyGeek and enjoy competitive pricing along with fast shipping on this versatile lubricant product.

If the item that you are trying to ship is deemed Hazmat you may have an additional fee added to your order when you check out. Items are deemed Hazmat as per the Section 14 Transport Information located in the item's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Sorry, but things that can go "boom" are hard to ship and we have to pass on our fees.
Flammable or explosive items such as Fire Extinguishers, MEK, Toluene, Paint Thinner, etc. are subject to a $40.00 Hazmat fee via ground shipping methods. However, the majority of Hazmat items have no fee when shipping with a ground method.
Most Hazardous Goods are subject to air and international transport fees. This fee is $105 for domestic air shipping methods and $162.50 for international shipping methods.
