Automotive electronics have become an extension of the electronics at home and work, from electric vehicles (EV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in electric vehicles (PHEV) to semi- autonomous driving, the automobiles have more electronics added in every model. The need for high-performance, energy-efficient, reliable and cost-effective solutions makes flexible graphite a great choice for these applications.
Adoption of LED in automotive headlights has been swift and effective. Thermal management is critical to ensure brightness, uniformity and life of these headlights. Flexible graphite solutions for both thermal interface and heat spreading help reduce or eliminate active cooling while ensuring long-term reliability, performance and low total cost of ownership.
Heated and cooled seats, arm rests and steering wheels have proven to be some of the most effective ways to ensure passenger comfort. Flexible graphite such as eGRAF® SPREADERSHIELD™ Heat Spreaders offer the best performance and cost effectiveness in both design and ownership. Whether for internal combustion engine (ICE) or electric vehicles (EVs), auto designers are incorporating innovative engineering to make the cabin comfortable quickly and effectively. NeoGraf has the widest range of graphite heat spreaders to address all of these cabin comfort challenges.
