More Reliable Electric Vehicle Batteries

For almost 50 years, silicone solutions from Dow has been helping shuttles go the distance in the unforgiving conditions of space. Now, they can help tackle similar challenges electric vehicles face here on earth.

As most manufacturers know, electric vehicles are not widely adopted for a number of reasons, one being their low range-per-charge.

Learn how this can change and discover the benefits of using silicone in electric vehicle battery packs.

Thermal Management

Keeping battery cells at their optimum temperature ensures optimal performance and power. Liquid-dispersible silicone forms a thermal shield around the battery pack, protecting battery cells from excessive heat or cold. Further, custom-designed silicone solutions either insulate or help dissipate heat to ensure optimal operating temperatures.

Silicone has been used extensively in space and needs to perform impeccably in extreme temperature fluctuations. So, Siberia and the Sahara should pose no problems.

Durability

The stress of daily driving on electric vehicle batteries is extreme and hurts the overall lifespan. Silicone forms a “custom-fit” solution around the battery pack, shielding it from the mechanical, moisture, and temperature fluctuations of daily driving.

To suit the rigors of space, silicone was designed to survive heavy vibrations, so it’s well-suited to take on the toughest of earth’s tough terrain. As well, silicones have helped the NASA Voyager II travel around 10 billion miles (and counting), so imagine how far performance like that could take you.

Dielectric Insulation

Short-circuits and over-current are the major causes behind electric vehicle battery failure. The dielectric nature of silicone protects and insulates key components, battery cells, and the bus bar from the dangers of electrical surges, helping to prevent battery fires.

Imagine sitting on thousands of tons of rocket fuel on the launch pad, where a single short circuit can spell absolute disaster – dielectric insulation has been mission critical since the 1969 Apollo II trip to the moon.
