Batteries and Fuel Cells
Facilitating heat dissipation away from the cell increases its operational efficiency and prolongs its service life.
We can help you find a material that meets your requirements in terms of thermal conductivity, chemical resistance, vibration damping, structural performance, and dielectric strength. Our selection of silicone and epoxy thermally conductive adhesives and potting compounds have been designed with battery production in mind.
Electric and hybrid vehicle parts such as power electronics, converters, motors, and control units can also be bonded, sealed, and/or encapsulated with thermally conductive materials to improve durability and energy efficiency.
Alongside these materials, we offer matched mixing, dispensing, curing, surface treatment and automation equipment so that you can implement the whole adhesive process with confidence.
Fuel Cell Assembly
When creating a seal between your bipolar plates and membrane electrode assemblies, the gasket needs to provide a tight seal that lasts the full lifetime of the fuel cell while protecting against moisture, vibration, oxidation, and chemicals. It must have resistance to temperature changes, aging, and the radicals and intermediates inherent in fuel cell composition.
A gasket material that is inert to the catalyst and membrane will maximise the lifetime of the system. We have both silicone and epoxy materials suitable for this application, as well as the equipment to dispense gaskets accurately and precisely.
We have several customers who manufacture fuel cells and rely on our products to perform to these requirements, alongside our results-focused technical support and expertise with ongoing supply chain support.
Comprehensive knowledge, seamless support
We will advise you on suitable adhesives and associated dispensing and curing methods for your products and processes. We will help you evaluate these materials and equipment and provide ongoing technical and supply chain support throughout the lifetime of your production.
