Datwyler has developed a foldable gasket, which combines advanced elastomer materials with metal plates. This combination enables a battery to be opened without damage should repair or maintenance be required.
High performance thermoplastic (TPL) and Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) technology is experiencing exponential growth, particularly in high tech applications in the fields of electrification and new mobility.
An ICCT report outlines the many planned phase-outs of Internal Combustion Engine vehicles across Europe out to the year 2040 and the opinion that car manufacturers should increasingly adapt product strategies away from ICE in favor of electric powered alternatives.
EVs open new opportunities for HMI and vehicle interior design
A deeper look at the trend towards electrification and the possibilities surrounding haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is an example of these advances and is an area that is increasingly important in terms of vehicle design, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
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.
