Bonding, cooling, cushioning, grounding, sealing and more from 3M

You face broad challenges in xEV battery production and design. 3M provides practical, scalable and efficiency-enhancing solutions.

  • Thermal Management Solutions for xEV Battery

    To help make you make your xEV battery designs successful, 3M employs the science of temperature control. Our lightweight thermal interface materials help dissipate heat and direct it through precise heat-transfer paths. Thermal insulation helps block temperature extremes, helping moderate operating temperatures in harsh environments. Our dielectric fluids help manage and regulate heat transfer in batteries designed for direct contact cooling.

    We will work with you to provide efficient, effective thermal management solutions all the way down the line: streamlined processes, faster assembly, and xEV battery systems designed for extended life, range and recharge time.

    Explore our broad range of solutions for xEV battery thermal management in pouch, prismatic and cylindrical xEV battery designs.

    • A lightweight, low-outgassing solution for managing heat-generating components. They are ideal for cooling plate and under-the-lid applications.

    • Chemically tunable, silicone- and iso-cyanate free material is excellent for a wide range of battery gap filling needs – all from one dependable source.

  • Thermal Runaway Propagation Solutions for xEV Battery

    In order to help mitigate thermal runaway propagation in xEV batteries, materials must be designed for flame and high-temperature resistance, dielectric strength, flexibility, and compression and recovery. Our range of materials delivers very robust high-temperature resistance and dielectric strength and can help slow down thermal runaway propagation.

    It includes barrier materials engineered for resistance to flame and electrical isolation failure. These materials are durable enough for use under the lid and thin enough for use between battery cells. Below you’ll find our most effective solutions for protecting xEV batteries from flame, pressure, particulates and electrical discharge. 3M collaborates with you to ensure the most effective solutions for your battery applications, helping you meet evolving industry regulations for customer safety.

    • Designed specifically to help delay thermal runaway propagation in xEV battery pack and module lids, as well as between-cell xEV battery applications.

  • Assembly Solutions for xEV Battery

    Assembly of xEV batteries is about performance – in efficiency of design and materials, in serviceability during production, and for drivers on the road. 3M bonding and joining solutions include adhesives that deliver semi-structural and structural strength, making them ideal for use with, or in place of, mechanical fasteners. Our battery sealants virtually eliminate time spent cutting and fitting, and 3M attachment tapes are excellent for applications that do not require adhesive cure times.

    In addition, 3M provides advanced lightweighting solutions that allows for the use of lighter, smarter substrates. Our friction shims are a quick solution for stronger, more stable battery mounting systems.

    3M collaborates with you on your assembly process improvements such as automated application systems for maximum efficiency, productivity, and vehicle life.

    • Available in multiple chemistries to suit a broad range of xEV battery designs and applications, our two-part structural adhesives incorporate smoothly into your automated processes.

    • Our tape solutions cure at lower temperatures compared to brazing, and apply cleanly and consistently between substrates to provide a thin insulation layer that helps resist corrosion caused by metal fasteners.

    • High-strength, low-density polymer additives can help to lightweight composite materials, such as Sheet Molded Composites (SMC), when used to create battery enclosures

    • Quickly add strength and stability to your xEV battery mounting assemblies without additional bolts or costly redesigns.

  • Electrical Isolation Solutions for xEV Battery

    So much of creating functional and reliable xEV batteries depends on containing electrical charge. 3M delivers a complete selection of scientifically engineered solutions. 3M invented the first electrical tape, and today our electrical grade insulating tapes and films are known worldwide. These tapes and films, along with our range of solid epoxy insulating resins, allows you to choose the hardness, flexibility and dielectric strength for your specific designs.

    3M provides the technical know-how to help you choose and incorporate solutions for some of the most basic and critical functions of your xEV battery designs. That means adding dielectric breakdown strength to critical xEV battery components. It means fewer tape wraps during assembly. That’s just the start.

    • One-part, epoxy-based, fusion bonded powder resins apply easily and help you meet specific electrical and mechanical performance requirements.

    • These combinations of films and adhesives can help you design xEV batteries for a broad range of temperatures, substrates and electrical grades.
