GKN Sinter Metals to Display New Innovative Materials at Strategies in Light Conference

AUBURN HILLS, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- GKN Sinter Metals will be exhibiting at the Strategies in Light conference, February 12-14th in Santa Clara, California.

GKN Sinter Metals plans to highlight its new Thermal Series of sintered aluminum materials with the capability of 50% higher thermal conductivity over traditional materials (245 vs. 160 W/(mK)). GKN's innovative process also allows for greater design freedom vs. conventional die cast and extruded products, while eliminating the need for machining. GKN's Thermal Series materials raise the bar for heat sink and other heat reduction applications by also removing the need for anodizing due to its excellent corrosion resistance.

"GKN is a strong player in the automotive industry and we are excited to take our next generation Heat sink material into the immensely evolving LED market and the ever growing Solid State Lighting. We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to display our technology at the Strategies in Light Conference. This is the best platform we can ask for." Karl Pfluke, Regional Product and Process Center Engineer.

THINK Sintered Aluminum. THINK GKN.
