Silicone Rubber in Flame Retardancy and Thermal Insulation for New Energy Vehicle Batteries

Enhancing Battery Safety with Silicone Rubber

Silicone rubber, known for its exceptional thermal stability and flame retardant properties, has become a material of choice in the construction and insulation of EV batteries. Its capability to resist high temperatures and prevent the spread of flames is vital in ensuring the safety of both the vehicle and its occupants. In the event of a battery malfunction or external fire, silicone rubber acts as a protective barrier, significantly reducing the risk of fire propagation and thermal runaway—a condition where one cell's failure can lead to the successive overheating and failure of surrounding cells.

Thermal Insulation: Maintaining Optimal Battery Performance

Thermal management is a pivotal concern in the design of EV batteries, as both excessive heat and cold can severely impact battery performance, efficiency, and lifespan. Silicone rubber's excellent thermal insulation properties help maintain the battery's temperature within an optimal range, ensuring consistent performance and prolonging battery life. By mitigating the effects of external temperature fluctuations, silicone rubber enables EVs to operate more efficiently in various climatic conditions, enhancing the vehicle's reliability and range.


Application in EV Battery Systems

Silicone rubber finds its applications in several key areas of the EV battery system:

Battery Cell Wraps and Separators: Silicone rubber is used to wrap individual battery cells and as a separator between cells. This application is crucial for preventing direct contact between cells, thereby reducing the risk of short circuits and thermal runaway.

Battery Module and Pack Encapsulation: Encapsulating battery modules and packs with silicone rubber provides an additional layer of protection against mechanical impacts, vibration, and penetration of water or other substances. This encapsulation ensures the battery's integrity and functionality in harsh environments.

Thermal Runaway Barriers: In the construction of battery packs, silicone rubber is strategically placed as barriers to contain and isolate any instance of thermal runaway within a cell, preventing it from affecting neighboring cells.

Cooling System Components: Silicone rubber is also used in the manufacture of gaskets, hoses, and seals within the battery's cooling system. Its thermal resistance ensures the effective operation of cooling systems designed to remove excess heat from the battery pack.
