Driven primarily by the rising demand for renewable energy and lower carbon emissions, the advanced battery industry has experienced exponential growth in recent years. Electric vehicles, renewable energy storage like solar energy and wind energy, and consumer electronics like smartphones and computers all create unique challenges for manufacturers. Advanced batteries include lithium-ion, solid-state and emerging chemistries that provide higher energy density.
Polymer Science helps manufacturers seeking materials to improve the performance and safe operations of advanced batteries. P-THERM® Thermal management materials help to effectively dissipate heat to improve the life cycles of batteries and the sensitive components powered by advanced batteries. P-SHIELD® Shielding & Grounding materials prevent interference that can impact the performance and reliability of advanced batteries.
Shielding & Grounding in Advanced Battery
Effective shielding and grounding solutions are essential for managing EMI interference in advanced batteries. During the charging and discharging process, advanced batteries generate interference. Polymer Science offers tapes, adhesives and foams that create a barrier between the battery and the external environment. These materials are also designed to protect the battery components against outside interference and help to guard against harsh environments and rugged conditions where advanced batteries are often used. Polymer Science offers a wide range of carriers, adhesives and conductive materials to suit the needs of advanced battery manufacturers.
Thermal Management Materials in Advanced Battery
Maintaining proper thermal management is crucial for the safe operation and longevity of advanced batteries. One of the primary methods of improving battery operation and extending charge time is maintaining optimal temperatures. Thermal management materials including gap fillers, phase change materials and thermally conductive adhesives help dissipate heat generated during battery operation. Preventing overheating and thermal runaway are key as technology continues to demand great energy performance from more compact designs.
