On-Demand Webinars: Materials

Material Solutions for e-Mobility


Long-term growth projections for electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are fueling research in electronic and battery technology with the aim of improving safety, extending lifespan, enhancing performance, and lowering cost. These challenging and sometimes conflicting requirements can only be satisfied, in part, through advancement in materials technology that allows better performance and cost optimization. Enabling materials include thermal management systems, as well as robust sealing, bonding, and coating solutions.

During this 60-minute Webinar, top EV and PHEV materials experts will discuss key critical-to-quality (CTQ) requirements for the evaluation and selection of thermal interface materials (TIMs) for a typical new energy vehicle (NEV) battery application. Additionally, attendees will learn about the role TIMs play in enhancing cold plate performance; how adhesives enable battery durability and protection, including applications within the battery cell, cooling plate, and cover plate; and, the battery design and integration flexibility that is achievable with various chemistries and through the elimination of conventional welding and fastening bonding protocols.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
