5 Reasons to Include Flexible Graphite in your EV Battery Material Stack

arrow-right

Neograf’s eGraf® SpreaderShield™ is steadily gaining traction as a material of choice within the EV space. Today’s post, which features insights and input from Bret Trimmer, Applications Engineering Manager at NeoGraf Solutions, LLC, will highlight the five benefits of using a layer of die-cut flexible graphite within an electric vehicle battery—at the pack level, the module level, and in between the battery cells themselves.

Pattern Coated Adhesives & Long-Term Wear Stick-to-Skin Applications

arrow-right

When designing a stick-to-skin die-cut adhesive patch for long-term wear medical or health and beauty applications, it is important to select a carrier that balances breathability and moisture transmission with an adhesive’s ability to seal out contaminants. Materials with the right balance will stay adhered to the skin while minimizing moisture build-up, improving patient comfort, and reducing the risk of infection. This article examines which carriers offer higher moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR) levels for long-term wear stick-to-skin applications and how pattern-coated adhesives can benefit MVTR.

Die-Cut Adhesives – Applications and Benefits Within the Electric Vehicle Battery Pack

arrow-right

Within the world of the EV battery, there are many applications for custom die-cut materials, in particular, tapes and adhesives. What lies ahead will be an educational journey through the many benefits one might see when choosing to use die-cut pressure-sensitive adhesives and tapes instead of mechanical fasteners and liquid adhesives and sealants in an EV battery application.

Short- vs. Long-term Wear Stick-to-Skin Adhesives

arrow-right

When selecting a pressure-sensitive adhesive for stick-to-skin applications, product designers seek to balance adhesion with breathability, conformability, and removability. Some applications require short-term wear adhesives that can stay bonded to the body for a few minutes up to a few days. Other applications require long-term adhesion to a patient’s skin—securing a device or patch to the body for up to 21 days. This post highlights some different applications for short- and long-term wear adhesives and (more importantly) examines what design engineers need to consider when selecting carriers and adhesives for on-body applications.

Engineered plastics (like polypropylene and thermoplastics such as Nylon, COC, COP and PEBA, TPO, or TPE) and composites increasingly used in place of metals for automotive, appliance, aerospace, electronic, and medical applications. Yet while there are significant benefits to these materials, they are very difficult to adhere to due to a phenomenon called surface energy. This article, the first of our three-part series, will explain the importance of surface energy in the bonding process, and how 3M low surface energy (LSE) adhesives allow for a clean and secure bond on low surface energy plastics.

The applications are nearly endless when it comes to stick-to-skin wearable device tapes and adhesives. Diabetic patients can monitor glucose levels with non-invasive on-body, continuous monitoring systems that allow them to go about their lives relatively unhindered. Individuals can gradually quit smoking through the use of die-cut transdermal patches that deliver a specific amount of nicotine through the skin and into the bloodstream
