Thermally conductive adhesive tapes are widely used due to the ease of heat sink attachment. Performance can be good, although not as high as the performance of phase change material or grease.
The shear strength and thermal performance of an adhesive tape is dependant on many factors, such as the flatness and cleanness of the contact surface.
The application instructions from the manufacturer (pressure versus time and temperature), should be followed to ensure adhesion.
Please refer to the specifications/instructions from each tape manufacturer.
