Freudenberg Sealing Technologies showcases new thermally-conductive, electrically-insulating (TCEI) materials at The Battery Show

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed a portfolio of advanced thermoplastic compounds for e-motor applications that provide these alternate powertrains with greater thermal conductivity and better electrically insulating properties. These new Thermally Conductive, Electrically-Insulating (TCEI) grades are especially important in the production of bobbins for e-motors. Bobbins molded from the new materials can be thinner, leaving more room for copper wiring which generates higher power densities in the motors. These materials, and a host of other innovative components and lithium-ion battery systems will be on display at the company’s booth at The Battery Show in Novi, Mich. (US), September 14-16.
