Elastomers Used in Electric Vehicles

 

If you are interested in presenting at the event please contact the event champions: Dr Julien Ramier (Schlumberger) or Izaak Watson (Martin’s Rubber).

This webinar will specifically discuss and address relevant challenges and solutions to very important transportation issues. The electric vehicle market is set to expand considerably leading up to 2030, as vehicle makers seek to reduce emissions.

The increased demand for electric vehicles will drive considerable investment in electric storage and power in the next few years.

This afternoon technical discussion meeting will examine the different requirements and challenges from such applications as suspension systems, drivetrain, and energy storge in electric vehicles, as well as design of rubber components.

RIEG's Afternoon Technical Discussion Meeting (ATDM) series is the main platform for the technical and scientific community in the UK to discuss the use of rubber and elastomer materials. Utilising elastomeric materials in electric transportation will be of interest to a lot of people in the sector.

Three take away benefits for participants attending this event:

  1. Current trends of elastomer for electrical transportation
  2. Technical solutions to current problems
  3. Networking

Quiet cars don’t deserve squeaky weather seals

A discussion on application of an innovative highly durable coating for solving unwanted noise on vehicles, including data on properties of the coatings in real world applications.

How the EV battery industry is changing and what this might mean for elastomers

Presented by Christopher Lyness, Battery Systems Lead, Vertical Aerospace

The battery industry is going through unprecedented growth as electric vehicles start to appeal to more consumers and make headway into new fields such as aviation. With ambitious timelines for zero Emission fleets in the coming years, investment in Battery technology is increasing and the focus is shifting from making the technology viable, to maturing it for the mainstream. This talk will discuss what this means for the associated technology inside battery systems and how this might accommodate the shift to better serviceability, sustainability,  ease of second life and recycling.
