Rogers Corp. is expanding its battery materials portfolio with a line of Poron polyurethane battery pad products to items made specifically for lithium-ion battery packs in electric vehicles.
Poron polyurethanes, Rogers claims, can withstand stresses in compression and temperature over an extended period of time, which allows them to maintain consistent levels of force throughout their lifespan. This consistency, Rogers said, gives the battery pads the ability to cushion EV batteries by absorbing shock to protect components that could be easily damaged.
In addition, Rogers has developed rapid prototyping capabilities for battery cell designs, which allows for an optimized design which optimizes battery efficiency and longer-term reliability.
