Thermal Runaway Protection

Safety is critical to the proper functioning of any vehicle. To help electric vehicle manufacturers navigate the challenges posed by strict safety requirements, we have developed a comprehensive suite of functional bonding solutions to protect battery cells from thermal runaway and enhance the integrity of automotive fire suppression systems. Whether it’s providing adhesives compatible with mica, ceramic fibers and other protective materials, we’re proud to help protect battery cells and EV passengers.
