Hi There,

I am looking for a high performance thermal grease that is also electrically conductive. It must be a grease or a "non-curable" paste (cannot become hard with time), once must be cleaned by the time the power device is replaced. Everything I could find so far is either not a (good) electric conductor or is something that "cures" with time. Please, pass it on to me if anyone knows of such product.

Hi kalisteuma
I think you will find Emerson & Cuming produce a range of silicon greases that satisfy your requirement.
The only one of their conductive greases I have experience with has been a silver-loaded product that eventually goes hard, but only after several weeks elapse after application.
You should find something suitable amongst their range.
