TECHSIL has worked alongside Panacol, a leading manufacturer of cutting-edge industrial UV, structural and conductive adhesives, to proudly put forwards its adhesives portfolio to combat the market shift for cell contacting systems and battery packs in various industries.
With the growing demand for efficient and sustainable energy storage solutions, cell contacting systems and battery packs play a crucial role in powering various applications, including electric vehicles, renewable energy storage, and portable electronics. The reliability and performance of these systems heavily rely on the quality and integrity of the adhesives used in their assembly.
Recognising this need, Panacol has invested substantial resources in research and development, resulting in the creation of advanced adhesive technologies tailored specifically for cell contacting systems and battery packs:
Electrical conductivity: The advanced adhesive formulations developed by Panacol exhibit good electrical conductivity, ensuring reliable and efficient current flow within cell contacting systems. This conductivity optimisation results in reduced power losses, increased energy efficiency, and enhanced overall system performance.
Bonding strength: By harnessing adhesive chemistries, Panacol has engineered products with exceptional bonding strength. These adhesives form strong, durable connections between components, minimising the risks of delamination, detachment, or intermittent contact. The result is improved safety, prolonged service life, and reduced maintenance costs.
Thermal management: Thermal management is also a critical aspect of cell contacting systems and battery packs. Panacol's adhesive solutions exhibit high thermal conductivity, facilitating efficient heat dissipation and maintaining optimal operating temperatures. This characteristic not only safeguards the integrity of the system but also enhances its performance and longevity.
Chemical and environmental resistance: Panacol adhesives are formulated to withstand the harsh conditions encountered within cell contacting systems and battery packs. They exhibit exceptional resistance to chemicals, moisture, and environmental factors, ensuring long-term reliability, even in demanding operating environments.
UV-curing adhesives Vitralit® UV 2113 and Vitralit® UV 2114 are characterised by very high adhesion to many materials and meet the requirements of the automotive industry in terms of media and temperature resistance. The rheological properties of both Vitralit® UV 2113 and Vitralit® UV 2114 can be adapted to individual customer requirements. Fluorescent adhesive variations for optical process control are also available. In just a few seconds, these adhesives can be cured with light in the UVA or visible range. Both gas discharge lamps and LED spot systems can be used for curing.
For complex CCS geometries with shadowed areas, dual curing Vitralit® UD 8050 is a good choice. After UV irradiation, this ion-pure acrylate adhesive postcures in the shadowed areas by reacting with humidity in the air.
“At TECHSiL, we are thrilled to be part of this paradigm shift in the energy storage industry, and our collaboration with Panacol enables us to offer you cutting-edge adhesive solutions for your cell contacting and battery pack needs. We strive to empower manufacturers to meet the ever-increasing demands of modern energy storage applications and remain committed to delivering customised adhesive solutions, providing comprehensive technical support and collaborating closely with industry partners,” states TECHSIL.
