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.
