A modification to a mixer tool has been proposed to enable it to produce thermal paste or metallized pastes from a boron nitride/mineral oil formulation. The proposal suggests the addition of a special ram as an integral part of the mixer which would apply the necessary force to properly mix the ingredients. In order to achieve the consistency desired, a roller mill has previously been used to mix the ingredients. This is a time-consuming approach with limited capacity. It is proposed that the ingredients be mixed in a commercially available mixer. However, as it exists, such a mixer does not produce a paste with the consistency required.
