Today there is an ever-increasing trend toward the electrification of vehicles in the transportation industry. In order for electric vehicles (EVs) to gain more acceptance in the market, there has been an ongoing effort to increase the range and performance of EVs to be similar to current internal combustion engine vehicles. This puts a lot of pressure on EV engineers to increase the performance and energy density of critical electrical components. Our range of thermal management materials helps EV engineers do just that.
OEMs are not only looking for effective thermal management designs as they compete for longer range EVs, they also need solutions that enable smarter and more autonomous vehicles. LORD is a unique partner for EV OEMs because we provide solutions for these challenges as well. We offer structural assembly adhesives that enable the light-weighting of components, rugged and wireless sensors for vehicle intelligence and control, and feedback devices that give steer-by-wire vehicles a realistic steering feel.
