e-mobility science. Applied chemistry.
Almost every aspect of e-mobility is impacted by chemistry starting with the cathode materials and electrolytes needed to optimize battery performance. Our diverse portfolio of performance materials that includes engineering plastics, epoxy systems and polyurethanes can be used to create a variety of lightweight, durable components including battery pack housings, cell frames, cables, connectors and charging stations.
It all comes down to the versatility of chemistry.

Good chemistry makes a good cell.
What is the heart of e-mobility? The battery. And at the heart of the battery is the cell. The performance of cells is completely dependent on electro-chemistry. The quality of the chemicals and the precision of the formulation are of paramount importance.
Next generation battery packs for e-mobility.
You need your battery to pack a punch and take a charge. You also need it to be lighter weight and more durable, with good connections that let the power flow. Our performance materials answer the call and let you produce next generation battery packs for e-mobility.
Pump in the power.
Charging systems have to withstand the stresses of delivering high levels of energy, in a short period of time. And increasingly, they must withstand the rigors of everyday use Ė exposure to the elements, vandalism and the occasional bump from a car.
