Freudenberg launches new conductive seals for electric powertrains

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is launching a new line of conductive seals that are designed to allow for durable connections between housings and shafts, while preventing bearing damage from electricity and electromagnetic radiation. The first functional models should be available within the next few months. Tim Leichner, Head of Strategic Product Advance Development at Freudenberg, said,… Read more »

Freudenberg develops lightweight plastic housing to seal against electromagnetic radiation

Researchers at Freudenberg are developing a plastic housing material for EV electronics as an alternative to heavier and more costly aluminum. To protect against electromagnetic waves that can disrupt signal flow in microprocessors and transmitter-receiver systems, EV makers typically encase electrical components in conductive metal housings, usually aluminum. Freudenberg says the additional weight of the… Read more »

Freudenberg Group’s new line of Li-ion battery separators

The separator is a critical component of a battery. It provides a barrier between the anode and the cathode while enabling the exchange of ionic charge carriers from one side to the other. For over 40 years, the Freudenberg Group has been producing separators for nickel-based batteries, such as the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) cells widely… Read more »
