With Latent Heat Carbon, we will be presenting innovative material developments for the efficient thermal management of batteries and power electronics.
Electrical mobility can only get safely rolling with reliable thermal management for batteries. That is why we have developed Latent Heat Carbon, a composite material consisting of phase-change materials (PCM) and graphite. It combines the outstanding heat-accumulation properties of the PCM with the high thermal conductivity of expanded graphite. The manufacturing method is new, too – the Expand to Shape process utilizes the foaming nature of the graphite to create flexible geometries and optimum thermal contact. Latent Heat Carbon can also be used to cool electronic components and in the temperature regulation of conventional propulsion technologies.
