Electrically powered vehicles: Impact of new fluids on sealing components

A lack of conventional energy resources and the associated consequences have led to a shift towards e-mobility in society in recent years. This has changed the requirements profile for Tenneco sealing components for electric drive compared to the traditional combustion engine. Figure 1 shows the change in the requirements profile. As such, Tenneco investigated the influence of these new requirements on its current elastomer portfolio in order to provide tailored materials for e-mobility applications, such as sealings for high voltage and electric components in, e.g., battery electric vehicles (BEVs) or fuel cell electric vehicles.
