TX-2 High Performance Thermal Compound


The TX-2 thermal compound offers industry leading thermal conductivity.  The non-toxic and non-conductive nature of the TX-2 means more peace-of-mind when it comes to cooling your CPU.  Molecularly small and structurally stable, the multi-award winning TX-2 is the perfect thermal compound for your cooling needs.


Low thermal resistance

for superior heat

transfer, 4.5W/Mk



Thin bond line for high efficiency conductivity

Low bleed under high pressure

Spreads easy-clean consistency




RoHS compliant

Not Electrically


  • 1: Small molecular size makes a better contact between the heatsink and heatsource.
  • 2: Help the low-pressure clip design of cooler to achieve better cooling performance.
