Wevo potting compounds used in supercapacitors
WIMA, a maker of film capacitors, employs Wevo potting compounds in its supercapacitor PowerBlock—a cascaded, double-layer capacitor module whose capacitance, rated voltage and dimensions can be individually adapted to a desired application. This allows a range of mobility applications, such as engine starter modules in large construction and agricultural machinery, ships, locomotives, trams and buses,… Read more »
Wevo’s temperature-resistant materials designed for EV electrical components earn UL ratings
Wevo, a maker of potting, bonding and sealing compounds, has earned UL RTI (Relative Temperature Index) approval for several of its flame-retardant polyurethanes, and one temperature-resistant epoxy resin has been certified to UL 94 V-0. RTI certification refers to long-term temperature resistance. In the case of polyurethanes, this is usually a maximum of 130° C…. Read more »
Alta Motors says its electric dirt bike has world-class energy density
Alta Motors claims that its dirt bikes have a battery pack with energy density that’s among the highest of any production vehicle. With help from Scheugenpflug’s custom production equipment and Wevo-Chemie materials, the motorcycle builder says its thermal design was the key to achieving that. Seven years ago, a group of motorcycle and off-road dirt… Read more »
