On Demand Webinar: Flame-Resistant Coatings for EV Battery Packs

Protecting EV Battery Packs from Fire

When designing battery packs for electric vehicles, fire safety in the event of battery cell failures is a difficult challenge to solve. Join our webinar on fire-resistant coatings to learn how these products enable the use of lighter-weight substrates while maintaining fire-safety standards.

Background on Flame-Resistant Coatings

To protect against fire — where weight, envelope and cost require a multifunctional material — Sipiol FR® coatings can be used on electric vehicle battery boxes and cells, common flammable infrastructure materials and elastomeric components. These coatings replace heavy steel components with aluminum or composites; mitigate the risk of fire or extend the evacuation time of automobile and housing occupants; and improve safety while reducing cost and complexity.

What You'll Learn:

  • Understand the capabilities and limitations of flame-resistant coatings

  • Learn where to apply the coatings within battery packs and temperature-sensitive components

  • Review the high-temperature performance, adhesion properties, and environmental durability of Sipiol FR coatings
