Components for Diodes and Thyristor Modules made of Aluminium Graphite

Aluminium Graphite is used in the form of thin discs and rings as a contact material for the press-pack sandwich construction in diodes and thyristor modules. The components function as a voltage buffer between the copper electrode and silicon chip to improve the overall reliability of the system. Aluminium Graphite can be used as an alternative to expensive molybdenum.

You benefit from these advantages: 

  • Effective heat management
  • Suitable for pressure-contact technology
  • Customized expansion behavior
  • Low intrinsic weight
