The H&EV industry is growing exponentially with production doubling every year. The main challenge for H&EV automakers is to ensure that the electrical and electronic parts in these new-generation vehicles are efficient, reliable and safe. Silicones play an essential role in producing high-performance H&EVs and for the battery thermal management since they are used in a wide range of solutions for the assembly, integrity and protection of critical parts in these new vehicles.
Who is this paper intended for ?
This study is primarily addressed to Materials Engineers in the automotive industry (OEMs or Tier 1 suppliers) involved in designing and producing innovative solutions to improve battery thermal management and performance.
This study also provides key information for non-specialist decision makers, including Executive Managers, Industrial and Procurement Managers, as well as Financial Officers or Marketing and Sales people, to enable them to understand how Silicone Technology works and why it is essential to improve their competitiveness.
