About Celsia's NanoSpreader Technology
Celsia's NanoSpreaders are the thinnest and lightest two-phase heat spreaders in the industry. Built on Celsia's patented micro thermofluidic design, the razor-thin structures are flexible to easily integrate with any electronic device and minimize the required space for cooling. Within each structure is an extensive network of micro channels through which pure water moves rapidly, changing from water to vapor and back to water, removing excess heat. The NanoSpreader technology delivers significantly higher thermal conductivity (heat transfer capacity) than conventional options such as aluminum, copper, heat pipes and other metal materials used for cooling. NanoSpreaders can be attached directly to a heat source to enhance cooling capability. With no mechanical parts, they are noise and vibration free.
