As thermal grease is used in many industries, how to preserve thermal grease has become a top priority. There are different types of thermal grease packaging on the market, including syringe packaging and canning. If it is a canned product, it cannot be used up at one time, and it needs to be stored for future use. If the preservation method is not appropriate, it will cause waste.
Many people think that when the thermal grease is used up, it is only necessary to seal the lid. In fact, it is not. Just like other things we usually use, thermal grease has requirements. Just like if you buy a drink and you can’t drink it all at one time, you must put it in the refrigerator, so that the drink can be stored for a longer period of time. The same is true for thermal grease, and there are also precautions. So how to store the unused silicone grease?
When storing thermal grease, it should not be exposed to the sun and should be stored in a cool place. Generally speaking, silicone grease cannot be affected by moisture and humidity, and is suitable for storage in an environment of 30 degrees. Its shelf life is not too long, eight months in a safe environment. Once it expires, it is not unusable. Need to test in advance to see if the performance can play out.
If the storage method is incorrect, the thermal grease will harden and lose its own conductivity. You can touch it with your hand, if it feels smooth and soft, it means you can continue to use it. On the contrary, it is not a slippery feel, but touches the dust, so you can not continue to use it.
In the final analysis, when you store thermal grease, you should pay attention to keep it well sealed, not place it in direct sunlight, and the environment should not be humid, etc. As long as everyone pays attention to these problems, the thermal grease can be stored for a longer time.
