As we move closer towards global electrification, relying on renewable energy rather than finite resources, the fast-moving mobility sector demands innovation, safety and sustainability. At Datwyler, we are committed to the development of efficient, system-critical sealing technologies that deliver reliable, high-quality solutions, while retaining respect for our planet at all stages of the development and production journey.
Customized system-critical sealing solutions for various mobility applications
At least every second car in the world drives with Datwyler parts. As a leading global supplier of high-performance polymer components, we help our partners to shape the future of mobility.
Using a powerful combination of materials expertise, solution design, operational excellence, and over 100 years’ of industry experience, we materialize ideas for a safer, smarter, more sustainable world.
For e-powertrain applications a wide variety of sealing solutions are required, as there are multiple surfaces that must be sealed effectively. We have developed a number of solutions for these sealing challenges.
At the 31st Aachen Colloquium for Sustainable Mobility, Datwyler, FEV Europe GmbH and the Fraunhofer UMSICHT presented a detailed paper on the development of the BiFoilStack – a novel cell and stack design with compound-foil-based bipolar plates for heavy-duty fuel cell systems.
In this technical article, Datwyler expert Jakub Kadlcak explains how thermal management of battery electric vehicles can be improved by the intelligent use of the right materials and composites.
Sometimes technology is seemingly ahead of its time – like the electrohydraulic brake booster (EHB), which is over two decades old. EHB is coming into its own with the introduction of electric vehicles and changes under the hood of vehicles driven by conventional power trains. This has put the spotlight on the safety-critical elastomer components that go into braking systems, such as those produced by Datwyler.
