Discover tomorrow’s EV battery solutions today: Henkel presents new E-Mobility innovations at the Battery Show Europe 2022

Henkel is pleased to be participating at the Battery Show Europe 2022, held
from 28-30 June in Stuttgart, Germany. As a key partner to automotive OEMs
and EV battery manufacturers, the company will be showcasing a range of
innovative solutions and technologies that will enable the efficient
production of safer, high performing batteries. As well as exhibiting key
technologies from the dedicated product portfolio for EV battery systems,
the Henkel stand (hall 10, stand E24) will also host a Live Product Showcase
with experts in the field presenting the latest innovations. Further thought
leadership will be provided by Holger Schuh, Henkel’s global expert on
Thermal technologies during a conference panel discussion on “Battery
Thermal Management Innovations”.

“We are proud to be helping our customers meet the emerging challenges of EV
battery manufacturing with performance-driven and high-impact solutions. The
Battery Show Europe is an essential convergence of the automotive value
chain that lets us together turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s
opportunities,” said Frank Kerstan, Director of Sales, E-Mobility Europe at
Henkel. “This year at the Battery Show, we will exhibit our comprehensive
solutions portfolio for EV battery systems. This will include our latest
exciting innovations, for example in the areas such as Thermally Conductive
Adhesives and Thermal Propagation Prevention.”

Inspiration and thought leadership from Henkel

The Battery Show Europe conference program provides a unique platform to
share cutting-edge scientific and engineering expertise and insight on the
latest industry challenges. Henkel is proud to be part of this vital
dialogue: Holger Schuh, Henkel’s global expert on Thermal technologies will
participate in a conference panel discussion on “Battery Thermal Management
Innovations” on Tuesday 28th June from 14:15 – 15:15 CET.

Further insight is available at the Henkel stand (Hall 10, stand E24) which
will host a Live Product Showcase on Wednesday 29 June at 11:00 CET. During
the showcase, Henkel subject matter experts will present the company’s
latest innovations in Thermally Conductive Adhesives for Battery Systems,
developed as part of Henkel’s broader focus on Thermal Management materials.

Discover key technologies for EV Battery Systems

The Henkel stand will also provide an opportunity to learn more about
Henkel’s solutions and products in the following areas:

*       Thermally Conductive Adhesives are a vital technology for battery
thermal management and are especially important for the new cell-to-pack
battery designs. Thermally Conductive Adhesives have a dual functionality:
As well as transferring heat from the battery cells to the cooling plate,
they also serve as an adhesive to bond together two substrates. Key products
of Henkel are Loctite EA 9497, a two-component epoxy-based solution, and
Loctite TLB 9300 APS, a two-component PU-based solution, especially designed
for bead and injection process in battery modules.

*       Thermal Propagation Prevention materials are essential to protect
passengers from the risk of fires – and help to inhibit the spread of fires
to ensure that EV passengers have sufficient time to exit a vehicle safely.
Battery safety and fire protection is a key focus area for Henkel, which has
pioneered Thermal Propagation Prevention solutions, including the recent
launch of two fire protection coatings dedicated for EV batteries, Loctite
EA 9400 and Loctite FPC 5060. These solutions also deliver efficient and
cost-effective application processes to ensure that manufacturers can
continue to optimise battery production while further enhancing safety.

*       Electrode Conductive Coatings and Dielectric Coatings: Henkel’s
portfolio of functional coating materials addresses a breadth of
applications for EV batteries. Conductive Primers for Cathodes or Anodes
reduce the internal electrical resistance and increase the adhesion between
active material and current collector foils of battery cells, thereby
improving the overall lifetime performance. Sprayable Dielectric Coatings
for battery cell casings, on the other hand, provide electrical insulation
where needed. With fast UV light curing technology and excellent interfacial
adhesion, they also provide full compatibility with Henkel’s structural and
thermal adhesives.

*       Compression pads – These highly robust pads provide a cushion to
prismatic and pouch cells for cell-breathing – the expansion and contraction
that occurs during charging cycles and with exposure to high temperatures.
Thanks to their elastic characteristics, they allow enough pressure to be
applied within the battery pack to maintain thermal and electrical
connections. The solution draws on Henkel’s materials science expertise to
provide an ideal combination of qualities: Heat resistivity and shielding
for thermal propagation prevention, light weight, and high mechanical
