And this year didn’t disappoint – Parker Chomerics, in its second year of exhibiting, prominently featured a prototype urethane-based, 3.0 W/m-K dispensed thermal interface material (TIM) designed for high volume, EV battery applications requiring reliable thermal cooling performance. With an in-booth dispensing machine provided by PVA, show attendees were introduced to a different technology alternative than silicone dispensed TIMs.

Also, featured at the Parker Chomerics booth was an electric vehicle battery simulation, portraying what the compressed urethane TIM might look like in application against the battery cells and the cooling plate of the battery container. Depending on the manufacturer and design, some battery cells are arranged into a container which could be the size of a queen mattress, so proper wet out and adherence is critical to proper thermal cooling.

Other technologies featured at this year's show included a variety of fluid seals, Press-In-Place (PIP) seals, o-rings, and molded shapes. Parker's innovative solutions for gearing and power transfer, battery life and electric motors can withstand a variety of environments, fluids, pressures, and temperatures. Sealing solutions for batteries require low compression set, temperature resistance, fire resistance, media resistance, low closure force and must be adaptable to a wide range of geometries.
