Tri-Linear Ceramic Thermal Compound
The high-density, ceramic-based thermal compound specifically designed for modern high-power CPUs and high-performance heatsinks or water-cooling solutions.

FEATURES
Tri-Linear Ceramic Content
Like the original Céramique, Céramique 2 uses only ceramic fillers so it is neither electrically conductive nor capacitive. The tri-linear composite of aluminum oxide, zinc oxide and boron nitride allows the thinnest possible bond line with modern processors, heat sinks and electronics. Critically-sized particles and new ultra-high shear mixing techniques maximize Céramique 2's thermal performance and help maintain a stable homogeneous suspension. This exclusive combination provides performance exceeding most metal based compounds.

Poly synthetic Suspension Fluid
A new oil mixture, improved thermal filler properties and increased particle de-agglomeration, dispersal and density enhance Céramique 2's thermal performance and overall stability. The third generation poly synthetic suspension fluid combines advanced synthetic oils to maximize wetting and stability while allowing a higher density of thermally conductive fillers.

Excellent Stability
Céramique 2 is engineered to not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.

Electrical Insulator
Céramique 2 does not contain any metal or other electrically conductive materials. It is a pure electrical insulator, neither electrically conductive nor capacitive.

Performance
2 to 10 degrees centigrade lower CPU full load core temperatures than standard thermal compounds or thermal pads when measured with a calibrated thermal diode embedded in the CPU core.

Innovative Dispenser
The amount of compound remaining in the 2.7-gram syringe is easy to determine as the rear of the plunger is perfectly flush with the flange when the syringe is empty.

Easy Clean Up
Céramique 2 can easily be cleaned from CPUs and heat sinks with ArctiClean, isopropyl alcohol or any of the cleaners listed in the product instructions.

Compliancy
RoHS Compliant.

Instructions
How to apply thermal compound

SPECIFICATIONS
Average Particle Size: <0.36 micron <0.000014 inch (70 particles lined up in a row equal 1/1000th of an inch.)
Temperature Limits: Peak: –150°C to >185°C / Long-Term: –150°C to 130°C

Coverage Area
At a layer 0.003" thick, one syringe will cover about 200 square inches.

Important Reminder:
Due to the unique shapes and sizes of the particles in Céramique 2, it will take a minimum of 25 hours and several thermal cycles to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. (This period will be longer in a system without a fan on the heatsink.) On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop slightly over this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is complete, the computer can be left on if desired.
