Tape and adhesive company Avery Dennison Performance Tapes has introduced some new tape and rubber adhesive products for EV applications.
The single-sided, conformable and dielectric tape can provide electrical insulation for EV batteries.
“This dielectric material uniformly maintains its thickness, and the polyurethane facestock prevents electrical arcing, which can lead to shorting and fires in the battery pack,” says the company. “The single-coated tape design is durable and creates an instant bond, eliminating the need for cure or dry times.”
The Flame Tough Rubber adhesive is a flame-retardant and halogen-free adhesive which is recommended for runaway barrier, compression pad and electrical insulation applications. The adhesive meets the UL 94 VTM and UL 94 standards. It’s part of the Flame Tough rubber adhesive product line, and the company says it has higher tack and adhesion than the line’s acrylic and silicone adhesives.
The new adhesive will be available in transfer tape and double-coated versions.
