The powder coating of an electric vehicle (EV) battery is particularly prepared for applications requiring electrical insulation and possesses dielectric insulator qualities.
Chemicals known as flame retardants are added to materials to stop or delay the spread of fire. They are employed in a variety of commercial and consumer goods to lessen the ignitability of materials.
The global EV flame – retardant material market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Advanced Plastic Product Created by LG Chem to Stop Thermal Runaway in EV Batteries. The world’s longest fire-resistance performance was delivered by a novel plastic product created by LG Chem specifically for battery applications that can stop the spread of flame in batteries.
Thanks to the company’s unique technology and production techniques, LG Chem’s flame-retardant engineering plastic product can stop the spread of fires. A highly functional engineering plastic product composed from different composites, including polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and polyamide (PA) resin, makes up the new advanced flame barrier product developed by LG Chem.
The new product’s excellent qualities allow it to withstand flames for a longer period of time when utilized in battery components. Additionally, it has exceptional dimensional stability and keeps its shape under a variety of temperature situations.
During LG Chem’s testing, the substance was able to stop fires from spreading for more than ten minutes at 1,000°C, which is ten times longer than with regular plastics.
The most common reason for EV battery fires is thermal runaway, when a variety of stresses can cause heat to accumulate inside a battery cell. Fire can start when a battery cell gets too hot because of a short circuit brought on by things like overcharging and over discharging.
Because lithium reacts violently, the resulting fire is challenging to put out. Drivers and passengers would benefit from the use of LG Chem’s new engineering plastic product on battery components since it would give them more time to leave a moving vehicle in the event of a broken and hot battery.
