Cabot Corporation has developed a new ENTERA aerogel particles portfolio with three aerogel products that formulators can incorporate into thermal barrier blankets, pads, sheets, films, foams and coatings.
ENTERA aerogel particles are thermal insulation additives that provide “ultra-thin” thermal barriers for lithium-ion EV batteries. Cabot ENTERA aerogel particles comply with EV safety regulations such as UN GTR No. 20 and China’s GB 38031-2020. The EV5200, EV5400 and EV5800 products range in size from microns to millimeters. ENTERA aerogel has over 90% air volume and is 20 times lighter than traditional thermal barrier insulation additives, the company said.
“The expansion of our aerogel capabilities for use in thermal barriers for batteries supports the growth of the battery market,” stated Jeff Zhu, President of Cabot’s Performance Chemicals sector and the Asia Pacific region. “Our new ENTERA aerogel particles provide strong formulation flexibility and play an important role in improving passenger safety, energy efficiency and extended range for EVs.”
