Fires caused by thermal runaway continue to be a significant issue in the evolution of EV battery packs. Now, as the EV marketplace approaches a tipping point, engineers are racing to address this challenge using various technologies. These include high-performance, pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) used in combination with thermal materials that can assist in hindering thermal runaway propagation.

Join this session where a team of experts—including Michael VanHaerents (Avery Dennison Performance Tapes), Michael Sanders (Avicenne Energy) and Melissa Widener (Alkegen)—will share their insights and explain how and why PSAs are being incorporated into thermal runaway prevention barriers. These adhesives offer multiple advantages for EV batteries, including flame retardancy, ease of assembly, corrosion prevention, and end-of-life recyclability.
