To minimize the interface thermal resistance between heat sources and heat sinks, the small imperfections and voids are filled with the thermal interface materials. The thermal interface materials are used to connect two components and remove air gaps from the interface, by producing a thermally conductive bond for transferring heat from crucial operating components of the device. In electric vehicles which have large energy storage systems, heat management is necessary. As vehicles are incorporated with more electronics and electrical components, thermal management is becoming progressively important.

Due to the micro-scale surface unevenness, the contact area among heat sinks and high power heat generating components is less than 4%. To enhance heat conduction through the interface and reduction in thermal interfacial resistance, the thermal interface materials are used. Also, for enhancing the device efficacy, proper selection of thermal interface materials is an essential step. Investing in the interface material is more effective than applying various cooling techniques, so as to create a suitable thermal contact.
