Blisters | 21 December, 2005

We have small blisters all over the bottom side of a heatsink the measures apprx 4" x 12", flat surface. Is there any chance someone can refer me to some standard or specs for usability, personally I think these little blisters would be ok and not interfer with heattransfer. The blisters are maybe 2-3mil in diameter and no more than 2mil in height.

If we received heatsinks with blisters on the contact surface, like you describe, we'd reject them. We want that surface to be perfectly flat. Google "heatsink flatness" for more. For instance:

We know of no industry standard or specification for usability.
