POREX® Advanced Porous Materials

Components & Materials for Electronics

IP-Rated Protection Vents | High Diffuse Reflectivity Thermal Management Components

Thermal Management Components

Strategically located porous skins can help electronic enclosures breathe and allow heat to escape while keeping internal components clean and dry.

Application Benefits:

  • Allows heat to escape
  • Keeps dust, debris and insects out
  • Promotes airflow circulation
  • Minimizes condensation issues

Product Features:

  • Variety of materials and airflow possibilities
  • High tensile strength – Resists deformation
  • Sheet or 3-D molded components
  • Can be joined using insert molding, chemical welding, heat welding, adhesives, mechanical features, etc.
