Gap Pads

Die Cutting Gap Pads

Gap fillers and thermal pads are essential components in the realm of thermal management, each with distinct properties and applications:


Gap Fillers: These soft, thermally conductive pads are akin to a dough-like consistency, designed for precise conformation. They adeptly fill gaps between uneven surfaces and microscopic voids, ensuring optimal thermal transfer and dampening shock. Ideal for applications that demand minimal pressure between components, these versatile materials come in silicone-free options to cater to silicone-sensitive components in various industries.


Thermal Pads: Pre-formed squares or rectangles, these solid materials are often situated beneath heatsinks. Their role is to efficiently conduct heat away from the component being cooled and into the heatsink, reducing interface resistance and offering vibration damping. They are also compatible with automated dispensing equipment.

Supplied by trusted brands like BERGQUIST® (Henkel) and T-Global Technology, Gap Pads come in an extensive product range, with each part number offering specific die-cut manufacturing suitability.

At Alpha Die Cutting we are able to die cut many different types and thicknesses of GAP PAD. Some of the types of GAP PAD we have die cut include the following:

a. Bergquist Gap Pad GP5000S35 at 0.5 MM (0.02”) thickness

b. Bergquist Gap Pad GPVOUS at 4 MM (0.16”) thickness

c. T-Global Technology Gap Pad TGX-150 at 1.5 MM (0.06”) thickness
