The increasing number of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and the larger, heavier batteries they require has necessitated a move to composite battery enclosures. The use of composites is required to achieve this larger, protective, and still lightweight structure. This presents a number of challenges versus traditional metal enclosures—the structure must still meet the necessary fire, smoke and toxic fume (FST) requirements while also providing shielding to electromagnetic interference (EMI). TFP's nonwovens provide the solution; in this webinar, Neil and Mike will discuss how the materials can be incorporated directly into the composite structure to provide this required functionality.
An introduction to TFP's nonwovens, their application in and advantages for advanced composites
The use of nonwovens in battery box construction to meet key FST requirements, provide EMI shielding and enhance surface finish
How TFP's nonwovens can be incorporated directly into a composite structure using traditional fabrication methods, reducing need for additional processing
The presentation of relevant examples, demonstrating the effective use of advanced nonwovens in composites applications
