  AUBURN HILLS, MI, Feb 11 (Marketwire) -- 
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.
