Thermal management in battery systems for electric and hybrid vehicles has become a topic of growing importance. Batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles show the best performance and lifetime at given optimal temperature range. To seal batteries and keep their temperature range as stable as possible, the need of variety of seals with improved thermal conductivity that help with effective heat transfer and dissipation is becoming critical.
Our material experts at Datwyler are focusing on development of thermally conductive sealing materials based on various polymers in order to keep up with the potential demands that are foreseen for these emerging technologies and markets while maintaining the standard properties of rubber seals such as physical properties, heat or chemical resistivity.
In this presentation, we explore early development of thermally conductive & electrically insulating elastomer compounds.
