“Saint-Gobain Solutions for EV Batteries”
At Saint-Gobain High Performance Solutions, we have been develping multi-functional materials to address the constantly evolving needs of the lithium-ion battery cells and packs, especially for EV application. Saint-Gobain’s expertise in engineered materials (ceramics, plastics, glass, glassfiber, composites) allow us to contribute with solutions along the entire value-chain.This presentation will highlight some of our solutions, from inorganic solid-electrolytes supporting the development of solid-state technology, to the foam/fiber/inorganic composites & laminates used as solutions for protecting modules & packs and mitigating thermal runaway.
