M&I Materials’ new dielectric fluids for battery and charger immersion cooling

UK-based M&I Materials has developed a new range of biodegradable dielectric fluids, MIVOLT, to provide immersion cooling for EV batteries and charging points.

As non-conductive fluids, MIVOLT fluids can come into direct contact with electronic components, which M&I says is a more effective method of heat removal and a lighter-weight option than designs that rely on pipework or cooling plates.

Commenting on the launch, M&I Materials CEO Giles Salt, said: “We have been working in advanced materials and electrical insulation for over 100 years, with a core specialism in dielectric fluids for more than 40. So with MIVOLT, we’re not approaching this as an EV start-up with a bright idea. Instead, we’re an established global manufacturer and exporter with the network, expertise and track record to support this transition.”
