Cover Story

In order to reach a long drive range of electrically driven vehicles, batteries with high storage capacities are needed. Due to the size and weight limitation of the batteries, the use of batteries with high energy density is necessary. Adhesives and sealants are crucial for the construction of the battery modules and are needed for bonding, sealing and for thermal interface tasks.

Governmental regulations of fleet carbon dioxide emissions are forcing car manufacturers to develop more efficient internal combustion engines and to realize light weight strategies. With those activities, gas mileage has been increased and carbon dioxide emission reduced. Through the implementation of novel lightweight materials such as aluminum, high strength steel and fiber reinforced plastics, a significant weight saving can be achieved. The replacement of internal combustion engines with electrically driven aggregates would eliminate the local CO2emission completely. The development of electrically...
