Innovative Adhesive Solutions for Electric Vehicle Reliability and Safety
H.B. Fuller is prepared to help EV manufacturers with the latest adhesive and sealant technology, providing turnkey solutions to improve the reliability and safety of battery packs. On the battery module, we provide solutions for cell to carrier, cell to cold plate, battery and structural bonding of enclosures, fire protection encapsulation, dielectric coatings, thermally conductive, and TIM solutions. For battery packs, we provide resealable, FIP and CIP gaskets, and flame insulation bonding. Similar to the general automotive industry, we offer bonding for body structures, adhesives for powertrain, battery pack/module structural applications.
Advancing the Electric Vehicle Industry through Innovative Adhesive Solutions
As the technology for electric vehicles (EVs) evolves to become more practical and cost-effective, manufacturing EVs will require a well-tooled supply chain with cutting-edge electric vehicle adhesive and sealant solutions. That means EV manufacturers won’t just need solutions that are proven to work — they’ll need a solution partner willing to innovate and break through boundaries. At H.B. Fuller, we thrive on solving challenges. Just bring your electric vehicle adhesive challenge to us, and we’ll handle the rest.
Structural Adhesives for Battery Pack Assembly
With the emergence of new lightweight plastics, composites, and a variety of metals, the assembly of battery structures with dissimilar materials is becoming more common.
Enhancing Strength and Versatility in Dissimilar Material Bonding
The EV Bond product line consists of innovative structural adhesives designed for cell to carrier, carrier to carrier, and other structural applications within the battery pack. The products have high structural strength, fast cure time, and are well suited for bonding dissimilar substrates. With the wide range of chemistries, including PU, MMA, UV-acrylate and epoxy, EV Bond technologies provide the ideal adhesive solution.
Flame Retardant Encapsulants for Electric Vehicle Safety
The EV Protect product line includes lightweight and standard density flame retardant encapsulants. They are liquid applied, two-component, polyurethane technologies that provide fire protection to EV battery modules. In the event of thermal runaway, EV Protect is specifically designed to isolate the event, insulate any adjacent cells from heat and fire, and reduce the chances of thermal propagation.
Sealing Solutions for Battery Modules and Packs
Sealing battery modules and packs is a very important design consideration. Design of joints within the pack can be complicated and require a variety of sealing properties.
Moisture-Resistant and Resealable Protection for Battery Pack Assembly
Our EV Seal technologies are specially designed to seal and protect the battery pack assembly and components from moisture, humidity and environmental exposure. They also have resealable capabilities, which allow for repeated entry into the battery pack for maintenance and repair of the module. Whether you need a form-in-place gasket (FIPG) or cure-in-place gasket (CIPG), the EV Seal product line has your ideal offerings.
Meeting the Growing Demand for Thermal Management Solutions in Electric Vehicle Batteries
With the critical nature of thermal management strategy for battery systems, the EV Therm product line was created to optimize heat transfer between battery cells and cooling systems. Our EV Therm product offerings include thermally conductive coatings, thermal interface materials (TIMs), and thermally conductive adhesives. Each product is designed to minimize the heat retention in the battery module and improve battery efficiency.
