Innovative and Emerging Silicone and Organic Materials

The market for plug-in hybrid and battery-powered electric vehicles (EVs) has the potential to grow exponentially in the coming years. That growth depends on the industry’s ability to meet consumer expectations for performance and value. Keeping automotive battery cells at their optimum temperature is just one way to ensure prime performance and power. Innovations from Dow Corning’s thermal management solutions portfolio expand the range of ways that designers can achieve this and The Battery Show in Novi is the place to catch up on all the latest developments.

As an industry leader in materials and collaborative innovation for advanced assembly solutions, Dow Corning offers organic and silicone based materials that give customers cost effective ways to manage the challenges in their next-generation EV/HEV battery designs. Dow Corning’s ability to provide broad functional options such as adhesives to reduce the need for mechanical fastening; thermally conductive gap fillers that alleviate mechanical stress and dampen vibration while aiding heat management; and encapsulants and gels to deliver the durable protection of battery cells and dispensable thermal pads helps to ensure top-quality operations.

Dow Corning is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, collaboratively providing solutions for battery assembly, reliability and longevity. From thermal management to adhesives, conformal coatings, encapsulants and gels, Dow’s extensive portfolio of proven, innovative and emerging silicone and organic materials is suitable for the toughest xEV applications.

Dow Advanced Assembley Solutions will be exhibiting at The Battery Show Europe 2018  at booth #309.
