  • Predict moisture vapor transmission rate of several Arnitel® grades.

    Arnitel® material grades are frequently used in film applications that are permeable to water vapor or "breathable." For proper application designs, engineers want to be able to predict moisture vapor transmission rates (MVTR) for material grades and know how it affects material performance in specific applications. Our Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate Tool allows you to easily estimate the MVTR of a material you are considering.

  • Decrease EV battery damage risks when using Pocan®AF4130, a flame retardant PBT+ASA grade

    Engineering thermoplastics like PBT and PBT blends have potential for applications in the EV battery sector. Although PBT has been widely utilized in electrical and electronic automotive components, it may be challenging to find a material specifically for battery components. Certain requirements must be met, and so Envalior and Hella tailormade a material for BMU and CMU housings that is resistance to heat and chemicals.

  • Implementing more powerful electric motors with PA46

    Ball bearings in EVs must meet higher requirements than in ICE vehicles. The trend towards more compact and lower weight electric motors operating at higher rotational speeds is reinforcing this. A material that offers higher stiffness and creep resistance than the usual PA66, and which is more cost-effective than PEEK, is available.

  • Decrease risk of battery housing fires when using our Tepex® composite, a lightweight sustainable material

    The materials used to make EV battery housings play a key role in passenger safety. To focus on safety and performance of EVs, engineers need to use a material that enhances the thermal stability of batteries, prevents thermal runaway, and mitigates the risk of fire or explosion. At Envalior, we tested a new composite under our Tepex® brand, which is ideal for components inside an EV battery.

  • Create lightweight, durable underbody components for EVs with Tepex composite material

    Lightweighting plays a significant role in creating optimal driving experiences. To compensate for heavy batteries in electric vehicles, engineers need to design lightweight components, including underbody panel components. There are engineering materials much lighter than metal that can be utilize. These materials also ease logistics, and allow fewer secondary operations with lower energy consumption, less waste streams in production and less hazardous production steps.
