I am happy to announce the release of our X-Series™ Thermal Straps; the World's first and only standard product line available with either Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet (PGS), or TAI's Graphene Foil (TAI's GTL™ and PGL™ products). The X-Series™ is comprised of 6 standard models with multiple end fitting options to choose from at no additional cost. As with our other standard model straps/links, flexible portion/sheet length and bolt pattern customization is available and free of charge (in nearly all cases), and additional (limited) end fitting customization is also available.

TAI uses the world's highest conductivity PGS and Graphene Foil sheets in our PGL™ and GTL™ products, with material conductivity of 1,600 - 1,840 W/m-K; material and sheet thickness dependent. However, as graphene production technology improves, graphene layered foils may one day offer even superior performance to the1,840 W/(m-K) currently available from TAI).
While Graphene Foil offers slightly higher performance than PGS (on the assembly level), a strap made with PGS is more flexible, and less prone to stress fractures and kinks when sheets are flexed. Further, the thermal conductivity of TAI's PGL™ products peaks near 150K, making them better-suited for lower temperature applications (60 - 200K), than Graphene Foils/Sheets (which peak at 220K).
To learn more about our PGL™ and GTL™ products, the X-Series, and any of our other Thermal Strap products, please feel free to call or email us at any time. At TAI, our experts are available from 06:00 - 22:00 MST / 12:00 - 04:00 GMT, 7 days/week, and are always happy to help!
