Thermal Management Solution for State-of-the-Art Electronics
With heat issues limiting power device performance and growth, we have developed a derivative of our material branded as Pyroid® HT Pyrolytic Graphite material that offers heat spreaders and sink thermal conductivity up to 4 times (1700 W/m°K) that of copper at only a quarter of the weight. This “ diamond like” conduction without the “diamond” price tag makes our material ideal for pulling heat out normal to a heat producing device as well as spreading it away.  This dual action eliminates the need for special "hot spot" thermal vias.

With our ability to provide very thin metallized coatings, we offer the opportunity for direct device solder attachment which provides the maximum thermal transfer.

Heat is the enemy of electronic circuits and devices. It limits performance and leads to premature failure. We are introducing a new weapon in the ongoing battle against thermal problems. Discover how the heat spreading ability of a new material solution — Pyroid® HT®... cuts size, weight, and cost from electronics packaging.

  • Discover a thermal management material solution that provides thermal conduction without the "diamond" price
  • Understand why Pyroid® HT material solutions are ideal for high-volume production and provide economic value at the device assembly level
  • Learn how to optimize heat sinks and spreaders with the Pyroid® HT software modeling tool

The Pyrogenics Group is a global supplier, fully certified to AS-9100/ ISO 9001, providing high performing, thermal management material solution that is 4X the thermal conduction of copper at quarter of the weight. Our CVD products are used in critical applications for all industries including semiconductor & electronic components, automotive, computer, sensor, medical imaging, aerospace defense to name a few.

The Pyrogenics Group is the technological leader in the production of engineered carbon based products for key industries requiring innovative material solutions.

These high-purity products offer unique thermal and physical properties that provide customer benefits in the form of extremely rapid thermal heat transport or heat spreading.

The Pyrogenics Group had its origins in the Space Age Materials Corporation (SAMCO), a research and development organization that focused on high-temperature materials and coatings for use in military and aerospace applications.

The production facility of The Pyrogenics Group is in Easton, Pennsylvania, a 90 minute drive from Philadelphia and New York City. The multi-building complex houses a variety of high temperature equipment including two-story production furnaces capable of producing Pyroid® pyrolytic graphite material from 0.001 to 1 inches thick (0.0025 to 2.5 cm), lengths over 48" long (120 cm), and widths up to 24" wide (60 cm).  Additional medium-sized furnaces and small pilot furnaces are available for lower production volumes or small scale prototype work.

Our furnaces are used on a regular basis for Chemical Vapor Infiltration (CVI) of pyrolytic carbon into carbon-carbon composites and special pyrolytic carbon coatings, and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD), on graphite or similar substrates.

We are supported by a ISO certified, full-service, analytical lab for product certification and our CNC machine shop is fully equipped to finish every order to the customer's demanding tolerance specifications and quality requirements.
