Datwyler advances thermal management of BEVs

ALTDORF, Switzerland—Swiss group Datwyler Holding Inc. is highlighting its latest progress with the development of thermally conductive materials (TIMs) to enhance the safety and performance of battery electric vehicles (BEVs)

TIMs, in forms such as solid rubber compound, foam, resin or adhesives, help to keep batteries at optimal temperature: conducting heat away from the source to the cooling systems.

While these materials are widely applied using form-in-place methods, Datwyler has instead been focusing on stand-alone gasket products based on various polymer matrices.

Stand-alone gaskets, it explains, offer better recyclability when a battery pack is disassembled at the end of its lifetime, particularly as form-in-place solutions often firmly glue parts of the battery pack together.
