Learn how eGRAF® SPREADERSHIELD™ can help thermal management in batteries:
In both battery electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, the battery modules must be safe, lightweight, and compact. Traditional thermal management metals, such as aluminum, result in battery modules that are unacceptably thick and heavy. Flexible, natural graphite directly replaces aluminum for long cell life, to cool the cells during fast charge/discharge operations, and to prevent propagation in the event of a cell failure.
Fast Charging & Extended Driving Range Through Advanced Thermal Management
Date: Wednesday, September 11
Time: 4:00 PM – 4:20 PM
Location: Crystal Ballroom
Extended driving range and the ability to fast charge Electric Vehicles are two primary focus areas for the batter pack designer. Surprisingly, the primary factor in achieving both goals is thermal management. Driving range is determined by the amount of energy that can be placed within the finished battery pack. Until there is a breakthrough in cell chemistry, the most effective way to increase energy density is to reduce the thickness and weight of the thermal management material. Learn More.
