TAI Delivers PGS Thermal Straps (PGL™) to Next Gen OPIR Program

Posted by Tyler Link on

TAI Delivers our PGS-based Thermal Straps (PGL™) for the US Air Force Space Command's (AFSPC) next generation Overhead Persistent Infrared GEO Satellites program (OPIR). These units are meant to cool instruments on the newly-designed platforms.

I am thrilled to announce that these particular graphite sheet straps have set our record for the highest conductance ever measured from a single strap (above cryogenic temperatures), of any strap ever designed or manufactured by TAI.

Big thank you to the expert technicians and engineers at TAI, and to our terrific customers who have recently benefited from our PGL products: Lockheed Martin, NASA, AFSPC, DLR, Airbus, General Atomics, Ball Aerospace, and more!

TAI Releases the 2018 X-Series™ Thermal Strap Catalog

Posted by Tyler Link on

I am proud to announce the release of the 2018 X-Series Catalog! Our latest catalog features the X-Series standard line; straps made with your choice of Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet (PGS), or our high conductance Graphene Foils (our PGL and GTL product lines).  The X-Series is the world's only standard model thermal strap product line made with graphite and graphene sheets/foils, and the carbon based sheets used offer the highest material thermal conductivity in the industry. X-Series Thermal Links / Straps are available in 6 standard models, with 2 semi-customizable end fitting types (in addition to our free bolt pattern and sheet length customization).
