Two key performance concerns for both consumers and EV manufacturers are the ability to charge EV batteries faster and deliver higher acceleration power. Safety is at the core of enabling those benefits. When used in battery separators, Kevlar® MicroCore™ can help prevent the biggest safety issue for EV batteries—thermal runaway. Attend this webinar to learn more about this new technology from DuPont and our launch partner NKK.

Attendees will learn about:

- Kevlar® MicroCore™, a new technology that can be used in battery separators.
- The benefits of this solution which is designed to help address growing demand for safer, higher-performing batteries by providing better ionic conductivity, high-temperature-resistance, and no shrinking.
- Testing results will be shared to demonstrate the solution provides excellent wettability and heat resistance.
- A unique combination of properties makes separators made with Kevlar® MicroCore™ ideal for EV batteries and specialty batteries.
