5 Things to Consider When Choosing Material For Your Seal or Gasket


Die-cut seal or gasket material selection should always begin with an assessment of the application in which the finished part will be utilized and there are several common factors that should come into play as part of that evaluation.

6 Thermal Management Materials for EV Battery Applications


Li-ion batteries perform best when maintained within an optimal temperature range.   The challenge is exacerbated by the consumer’s desire for a rapid charge and discharge, both of which add to heat management issues.  Too hot or too cold and thermal instability can occur leading to thermal runaway that can at best destroy the cell and at worst start a vehicle fire.  Reducing this thermal instability is where many of the performance materials that we convert at JBC Technologies come into play. Die-cut performance materials such as those described in this post can be used at the cell level, the module level, and even the pack level.
