How Pressure-Sensitive Adhesives Enable Advanced Thermal Runaway Barrier Design
Fires caused by thermal runaway continue to be a significant issue in the evolution of EV battery packs. Now, as the EV marketplace approaches a tipping point, engineers are racing to address this challenge using various technologies. These include high-performance, pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes used in combination with thermal materials that can assist in hindering thermal runaway propagation.

• How the evolution of EV battery pack design presents challenges to engineers seeking thermal runaway prevention solutions
• How and why PSA tapes are being incorporated into thermal runaway protection barriers in EV battery packs
• How PSA tapes offer numerous advantages in EV battery pack design, including flame retardancy, ease of assembly, corrosion prevention, and end-of-life-recyclability
• An overview of how to choose the right PSA tape for a specific application
