JOHN ALBAUGH, TECHNICAL SERVICE LEADER – ELKEM
- Elkem Silicones has provided thermal management solutions for 200,000+ passenger electric vehicles and counting.
- Thermal management applications within EV cover a wide range of needs related to battery pack insulation, battery pack assembly, component assembly, gap filling, power control units and cables / connectors.
- Meeting consumer and OEM expectations for protection, performance and value in battery-powered electric vehicles requires effective thermal management within the battery pack and across the powertrain components.
- Silicone materials inherently have the right properties including high electrical insulation and thermal resistance. Materials can be tuned to provide thermal insulation or thermal conductance within the base silicone foam, adhesive, elastomer, potting compound or paste.
- A comprehensive, and often customized, approach to battery interstitial fill, thermal interface, adhesives, potting and protective covering materials is required to meet design specifications. Selected material and application examples will be presented.
- Elkem Silicones understands the importance of having a capable and agile partner in the selection, development, application, industrialization and supply of materials in the rapidly growing and changing electric vehicles market.

TODD COY, EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT – KBI
The demand for lithium-ion batteries could quadruple by 2030. Demand for global production of the batter materials, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and graphite, could grow similarly. What are the strategies for recycling batteries? Lithium-ion battery recycling has many challenges including regulation.

2:25PM MANAGING IMPACTS OF FAST CHARGING ON THERMAL MANAGEMENT OF THE BATTERY PACK
BRET TRIMMER, APPLICATIONS ENGINEERING MANAGER – NEOGRAF SOLUTIONS
- The ability to extended driving range per charge and consistently fast charge electric vehicles are two primary focus areas for the battery pack designer. Surprisingly, the primary factor in achieving both goals is thermal management.
- The main thermal management material in use today for BEV’s is aluminium, but aluminium is thick, heavy, and a poor conductor of heat. It is very hard to use aluminium for extended driving range and fast charging without the pack becoming too large and heavy to be practical.
- For the same heat spreading as aluminium, flexible graphite is half the thickness and a third of the weight.
- Switching from aluminium to graphite cooling fins results in modules that are significantly smaller and lighter. When arranged in a pack, the cooling plate and housing will also be reduced in size. This results in a considerable weight savings, which translates into greater driving range per charge.
- Flexible graphite cooling fins have been used in large scale marine Li-ion battery systems for almost a decade and are now transitioning to automotive battery electric vehicles.
- Graphite enables increased driving range and fast charging, while making the battery pack smaller and lighter.
