With the rapid growth of high energy-density battery electric vehicles, safety from thermal runaway events remains a concern.
In this webinar, Dow’s Jake Steinbrecher and Craig Gorin highlights novel flame-retardant and ceramifiable silicone-based solutions for thermal runaway propagation prevention and hazard mitigation.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Identification and technical evaluation of hazards from battery thermal runaway events
- An understanding of current silicone materials, fabrication options, and applications
- Methods to mitigate thermal runaway hazards in battery pack designs
- Exposure to new testing methods that validate mitigation or protection solutions
