Battery Components

Highly efficient battery systems are key to the success of electromobility. Individual components need to meet high-performance standards during driving and in the event of damage or accidents. Therefore, any material used needs to be carefully assessed by its flame retardancy, electric isolation, thermal conductivity, and cooling compatibility. Our Ultramid®, Ultramid® Advanced, Ultradur®, Elastollan®, Elastan® and Elastolit® material families meet your specifications for high performance battery components.

Thermal Management

Thermal management is crucial for electric engines. Components like water pumps, heaters, fittings as well as pipes benefit from the excellent media resistance, the leak tightness and compatibility with many coolants of BASF’s polyamide Ultramid® and the products in the polyphthalamide portfolio of Ultramid® Advanced. With these high-performance materials, laser welding is also possible.

Electric Motor

The electric motor is the heart of every electric vehicle. Motor housings and motor carriers as well as delicate components such as the stator, rotor, rotor end caps, busbar holders, and connectors function reliably thanks to the engineering plastics Ultramid® Advanced (PPA), Ultrason® (PSU, PESU, PPSU), and the long glass fiber-reinforced Ultramid® Structure from BASF. They are characterized by high temperature and media resistance, excellent strength, and electrical compatibility – and are all available as flame-retardant grades.

Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH)

The way a product feels, looks, and sounds impacts how consumers perceive its quality. Noise and vibrations play a part in shaping the driving. In order to meet the growing expectations for vehicle performance, BASF offers Cellasto®, Basotect®, Elastoflex®, and Elastollan® which provide effective high-frequency decoupling, noise insulation, and soundproofing.

Check out our product range offering excellent electrical insulation, outstanding flame retardancy, and hydrolysis resistance, while also meeting the relevant IEC standard for risk and quality management.

Connectors, Cables & Cable Management

Wherever electricity flows, plastics must have excellent electrical insulation, outstanding flame retardancy, and hydrolysis resistance, while also meeting the relevant IEC standard for risk and quality management. For sealed connectors, compatibility with liquid silicone (LSR) is of great importance. Are you looking for extrudable products or materials that are permanently colored orange? You will find it all in our product range, consisting of Ultramid®, Ultramid® Advanced, Ultradur®, and Elastollan®.
