Exploiting the capacity of a battery and protecting the cells from thermal damage. Two crucial requirements for both the automotive sector and power tool applications.
It’s essential to avoid hot spots, an uneven heating of the battery cells. Moreover, the physical protection against shocks and vibrations is also very important.
Depending on the profile of requirements, self-leveling systems or exclusive materials with up to 3.5 W/m* K can be used for these applications.
By using innovative potting solutions from copaltec, the heating rate of a battery in continuous operation was reduced.
This resulted in a continuous operation time increase of 10%. In addition, the battery cells experienced less thermal stress, which significantly increased the service life of the battery by up to 25%.
