The PPG booth (#109) at AABC Europe will feature a broad range of solutions for battery cell and pack applications, including thermal gap fillers, a cathode binder free of N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP), dielectric and intumescent coatings, pack sealants and adhesives. In addition, Calum Munro, PPG senior scientist, research and technology, automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) coatings, will detail the development and validation of PPG Coratherm thermal gap filler. This cost-effective, marketplace-ready thermal management solution offers outstanding performance and low density, PPG says. It is available in 1K and 2K forms and can be tailored to the unique requirements of each OEM.

PPG this week also is featuring recent success in developing a cost-effective cathode binder that eliminates the use of the solvent NMP. The marketplace-ready binder helps streamline formulation and application processes, reducing mixing times by up to 90%, and contributes to longer battery cycle life. NMP, which is widely used in electrode manufacturing, has been identified as a reproductive hazard by several global regulatory agencies.

“PPG’s participation in AABC Europe will enable us to highlight our expertise in helping customers enhance battery performance, durability and safety while reducing total system cost,” said Munro. “We also partner with customers to ensure successful, high-volume application of our latest battery coatings solutions.”
