Following the tremendous success of its previous two annual editions,  Adhesives, Sealants and Thermal Materials For EV Batteries 2022 connects automotive manufacturers, BEV manufacturers and OEMs, battery system integrators and cell manufacturers.

WeAutomotive’s Electric Vehicle webinar series continues to reach an astonishing audience,of now over 300,000 EV and Battery Manufacturers from around the world. As the industry’s foremost provider of information and expertise, WeAutomotive Group has firmly established itself as the Automotive industry’s first class curators of EV technical content, tackling crucial key and current market and manufacturing challenges.

With automakers embracing electrification in a rapidly evolving industry, advanced battery materials remain at the forefront of driving EV adoption rates. The global adhesives industry is purported to grow at a substantial compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in the next decade. The use in EVs is vast, adhesives and sealants have become an indispensable part of battery manufacturing innovation, as they continue to enable stronger and more durable bonds and heat dissipation properties.

With increasing vehicle electrification and autonomy, silicone adhesives are increasingly required to deliver durability across more mechanical designs and functional requirements, all while helping control total cost, and providing solutions to meet OEM expectations.

Adhesives, sealants and thermal materials play a decisive role in the advancement of EV technology and will certainly pivot the further growth of battery-powered vehicles across the automotive industry globally. Specifically designed for EVs, adhesives and sealants find applications in battery packs, drivetrains and motors.

Battery makers are bound to follow stringent regulations from the automotive industry which oblige them to construct a battery with 12-15 years of EV life, whilst working at elevated temperature conditions and absorbing the shocks and vibrations faced whilst driving.

All of the above-stated factors have given the adhesives and sealant industry the definite momentum to thrive.

The uses of adhesives, sealants and thermal materials in battery assembly operations present numerous opportunities in the electric vehicle (EV) market. Coupled with the significant OEM investment in EVs, the need for light weighting, crash resistance, and the protection of battery packs are some of the key factors that have propelled the demand for battery adhesives, sealants, and thermal materials to meet these objectives.

This webinar series covers an in-depth analysis of adhesive, sealant, and thermal material innovations for the EV batteries market, including a thorough analysis of various adhesives and sealants such as epoxy, polyurethane, silicone, and polyacrylates, and thermal materials, such as gap pads and liquid gap fillers.

Sessions will explore next-generation initiatives that are driving future mobility and specifically which are the key application areas, and best dispensing techniques for different adhesives, sealant and thermal material types.

Thermal Conductive Adhesives For Next Generation Cell-to-Pack Configurations

Dr. Tim Fornes, Technology Fellow, Advanced Technology, Parker LORD

Susan Donaldson, Scientist I in the Advanced Technology Department, Parker LORD

Speaker Bios | Company Profile

A new class of thermally conductive adhesives have been developed for directly bonding prismatic battery cells to cooling plates. This lightweight technology not only affords higher energy density in EVs, but greatly reduces manufacturing cost and complexity.
Key Takeaways:
  • One route to achieving these goals is the elimination of the housings of battery modules and bonding individual cells directly to the cooling plate. This simplification eliminates numerous steps, parts, and materials. We’ll discuss the shift towards this design and how it benefits manufacturers when using thermal management materials
  • New adhesive technology is needed to meet more demanding performance requirements. This talk will review new developments in thermally conductive adhesives that enable direct bonding of prismatic cells to aluminum cooling plates.
  • Comparisons between the new cell-to-pack design and traditional battery pack configurations will be discussed.
