Heat dissipation

At Exacoat, we understand the concerns related to device heat dissipation and how it might be impacted by adding a skin. However, we’re here to debunk the myth and showcase the science behind why Exacoat skins won’t hinder your device’s cooling capabilities.

Will my device heat dissipation become affected with skin?

The short answer is no.

Rest assured, Exacoat skins are designed with thermal performance in mind. While any covering adds a slight thermal layer, the impact on heat dissipation is minimal and negligible for everyday use. Here’s the science behind this claim:

Firstly, let’s address the elephant in the room: thickness. Our ultra-thin skins at 0.22mm, are barely thicker than a sheet of paper. This minuscule difference means minimal interference with heat transfer. Consider it like adding a single, incredibly thin layer of clothing to your phone – it wouldn’t significantly impact its breathability, right?

Now, for the science. Heat dissipation primarily occurs through two mechanisms: conduction and radiation. Conduction involves heat transfer through direct contact with cooler surfaces. In the case of your phone, the metal chassis plays a crucial role in conducting heat away from the internal components.

Here’s the key point: Exacoat skins are specifically designed not to impede this crucial conduction process. We use high-quality materials with excellent thermal conductivity, ensuring seamless heat transfer between your device and the surrounding environment.

Furthermore, radiation plays a secondary role in heat dissipation. This involves the emission of infrared waves, which carry heat away from the device. Again, the thinness and material properties of Exacoat skins pose no significant barrier to this radiative heat transfer.

To put things into perspective, let’s compare Exacoat skins to the popular alternative: phone cases. Most cases are significantly thicker than 0.22mm, often exceeding 1mm or even 2mm. This additional bulk can indeed trap heat and hinder efficient dissipation. In contrast, Exacoat’s minimal presence minimizes such concerns.

Several studies support these claims. A 2019 research paper published in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer investigated the impact of various phone case materials on heat dissipation. The findings revealed that thinner cases, particularly those made of materials with high thermal conductivity, had minimal impact on device temperatures. This aligns perfectly with the design principles behind Exacoat skins.

Ultimately, Exacoat empowers you to personalize your device without compromising its crucial thermal performance. Our commitment to using ultra-thin, thermally conductive materials ensures seamless heat dissipation, keeping your device cool and running smoothly. So, go ahead, embrace the style and protection of Exacoat skins – your device will thank you for it.


Featherweight Materials

Exacoat skins are meticulously crafted from ultra-thin, high-grade vinyl, boasting a thickness of a mere 0.22 millimeters. This minuscule dimension, comparable to a credit card’s embrace, ensures the skin virtually breathes in tandem with your device, facilitating unimpeded heat dissipation.

Thermal Conductivity

Concerns regarding vinyl are understandable, but the specific vinyl employed by Exacoat possesses a thermal conductivity of 0.19 W/mK. This exceptional property translates to heat transfer to be better than standard plastic and comparable to building materials often used for insulation.

Precision Engineering for Optimal Flow

Unlike generic stickers, Exacoat skins are cut with unparalleled precision using industrial grade machine. This meticulous approach ensures us to conform flawlessly to the device’s contours, leaving no room for inadvertent blockage of vital ventilation points or heat sinks. Every thermal pathway and air vent remains unhindered, facilitating unrestricted airflow, the cornerstone of device cooling.

User Testimonials

Our customers are our biggest advocates. Countless Exacoat enthusiasts agree: no noticeable temperature changes after applying the skins. This real-world feedback further solidifies the scientific evidence that the impact on heat is practically non-existent for everyday tasks like browsing, streaming, or even light gaming.

Tested and Proven

Exacoat doesn’t just preach science; we prove it. Our skins undergo rigorous stress tests designed to push them to the limit, including independent thermal imaging. These tests compare skinned and unskinned devices under various workloads. The results are crystal clear: Exacoat skins have a negligible impact on heat dissipation during normal use.
