Performance Testing of Adhesive Tapes for EV Battery Application – Why Thermal Conductivity Matters

Thermal interface materials (TIMs) provide a means of improving heat transfer between temperature generating components and cooling hardware. They are an integral part of any thermal management system and can take on a variety of formats depending on the application. Adhesives tapes are one such example that provide both thermal dissipation and structural support for… Read more »
