Driving Toward the BEV Tipping Point: Solving cost and scalability challenges

Dave Malobicky, General Manager & Team Leader, PPG’s Mobility Business PPG

Speaker Bio | Company Bio

  • In the webinar Dave will address how a new approach to tackling battery pack issues (safety, dielectric isolation, thermal management, and other battery related topics) with coatings can help solve multiple issues at once.
  • Coatings designed for battery fire protection (BFP) can be readily be applied at high throughput as a coating layer onto the battery pack lid.
  • During normal use coatings based BFP products can provide corrosion and dielectric protection to the pack lid and will have minimal thermal insulation to better enable battery cooling.
  • These products add minimal weight or volume to the EV battery when compared to traditional BFP products.
  • In the case of a battery fire scenario, these intumescent coatings will support the isolation of flames, heat and prevent the battery lid from reaching high temperatures.
  • BFP coatings thickness can be optimized to specific battery designs and requirements.
