There are several alternatives to silicone free thermal pads, including:
Silicone-based thermal pads: These are the most common type of thermal pads used in electronic devices. They are made of silicone and offer good thermal conductivity and electrical insulation.
Graphite pads: These are made of graphite, which has high thermal conductivity. They are typically thinner than silicone-based pads and can be used in applications where space is limited.
Phase change materials: These are materials that change phase from solid to liquid when heated. They offer very high thermal conductivity and can conform to irregular surfaces. However, they can be messy and difficult to handle.
Thermal greases: These are compounds that are applied between the electronic component and the heatsink. They offer very high thermal conductivity but can be messy and difficult to apply.
Metal-based thermal pads: These are made of metal, such as copper or aluminum. They offer very high thermal conductivity but can be expensive and difficult to work with.
