Electric Vehicle Battery Pack

Thermal Management for Electric Vehicle Battery Packs & Energy Storage Batteries

Heat can be a real drain - As battery technologies evolve to have increased energy density, the ability to manage heat during charge and discharge cycles is crucial for optimizing performance. Parker LORD CoolTherm® encapsulants, adhesives, and gap fillers are fully customizable and compatible with cylindrical, pouch, and prismatic battery cells. 

Potting & Encapsulants

Potting & Encapsulants for Battery Thermal Management

Thermally connect your cells to the heatsink by encapsulating the entire pack and minimizing design gaps by taking advantage of high dielectric strength.

  • Improve Performance: Our encapsulants facilitate optimum heat transfer because of their high thermal conductivity and low viscosity.
  • Protect Electronics: Potting and encapsulants provide protection from dust and moisture and can reduce vibration.
  • Reduce Component Stress: Parker LORD encapsulants exhibit low shrinkage upon curing.

Thermally Conductive Adhesives for Battery Pack Assembly

Formulated for standard MMD equipment, our adhesives provide your application with structural integrity. Our thermally conductive adhesives not only provide mechanical rigidity but also a thermal connection where heat is a problem.

  • Improve Design Flexibility: No longer constrained by mechanical fixtures and given the ability to bond a wide variety of substrates, you are free to discover the possibilities.
  • Reduce Complexity: Reduce the need for fasteners, thereby simplifying your battery pack design.
Gap Filler

Gap Fillers for Battery Thermal Management

Get the best performance out of your batteries by filling in surface imperfections with a thermally conductive gap filler designed with electric vehicle applications in mind. They are a stay-in-place solution and cure as a gel, easing the stresses caused by thermal differences and flex.

  • Low Outgas Options: We offer low ppm siloxane solutions for sensitive electronic applications.
  • Protect Against Shock: Our gap fillers remain tacky and soft to dampen vibration.
  • Multiple Chemistries Available: We offer these materials in silicone and urethane options to fit your design needs.

CoolTherm® Thermal Management Solutions

Our thermal management products are available in a wide range of chemistries, thermal conductivities, densities, and more.
