Dow to Showcase How Material Advances Can Improve Battery Design and Assembly at The Battery Show


Dow Automotive and Dow Performance Silicones, two global business units of The Dow Chemical Company, are jointly showcasing their industry-leading expertise and cutting-edge materials solutions for advanced batteries and other power applications at The Battery Show North America (Booth 1311), which opened this week in Novi, Mich.

Highlights include a presentation by Dow Performance Silicones Technical Specialist, Kate Johnson during the event’s Open Tech Forum, and featured product technologies such as BETAFORCE™ 2800TC Thermally-Conductive Adhesive and key product technologies from Dow’s broad range of advanced silicone solutions for improved assembly and thermal management of battery components.

Titled “Extending the Toolbox:  Property and Performance Overview of Gap Filler Materials,” Johnson’s presentation on Sept. 12 surveyed the material technologies evolving to address today’s increasingly stringent automotive battery requirements, and discussed the use of material characterization and modeling methods to explore options for target applications. Johnson’s presentation,  which is available upon request, also focused on new organic and inorganic solutions offering thermal management, dielectric performance and more efficient assembly of current and future battery designs.

During the exhibit, the Dow Automotive team is on hand at the booth to discuss the company’s robust portfolio of battery solutions, including BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC, a two-part polyurethane thermally conductive adhesive optimized for bonding battery cases to vehicle bodies. This advanced material demonstrates excellent sealing properties to enable long-term durability of the bond assembly. Formulated to support a wide range of application methods, including fast dispensing, the material eliminates sag and works well over a wide range of temperatures and humidity.

Dow Performance Silicones is also highlighting industry-leading material solutions at the booth, including:
