Silicone chemistry is widely used within current automotive applications due to its inherent physical properties including, a wide operating temperature range, electrical insulation, high dielectric strength, low coefficient of thermal expansion and resistance to moisture and chemicals.
Advances in Electric & Hybrid Vehicle design continue to reduce component size and increase power output, resulting in an ever-increasing demand for greater protection and better heat dissipation to maintain performance and life span. New filler technologies combined with formulating techniques enable CHT to increase thermal conductivity across a range of silicone materials including, adhesives, gap fillers, encapsulants, greases and gels.
