The electric vehicle EV segment is proliferating and forecast to reach 25.5 million sales globally by 2030. This is up from 2.3 million vehicles sold globally in 2020, representing a CAGR of 27%. Hybrid and plug-in hybrids are expected to account for another 21 million vehicles sold by the end of the decade.
With this growth comes an increasing demand for EV batteries that are:
However, additional design challenges are emerging as EV battery packs become integrated into vehicle structures. These include fitting functional materials — such as those that mitigate thermal runaway — into the tight spaces inside modern battery packs. This white paper will explain one promising solution to the thermal-runaway mitigation challenge — a solution offering engineers high levels of flexibility when working with modern battery designs. It involves the use of pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes integrated with functional materials.
Read the following white paper to discover how pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes enable advanced thermal-runaway barrier design and provide a safe and flexible solution for the EV battery segment.
