Technical Fibre Products, headquartered in Burneside, UK, will host a webinar with Composites World magazine on fire protection and EMI shielding solutions on June 29th at 2pm (EST). The focus will be on how TFP’s nonwovens can provide the required protection to composite battery enclosures for electric vehicles.

The increasing number of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and the larger, heavier batteries they require has necessitated a move to composite battery enclosures. The use of composites is required to achieve this larger, protective, and still lightweight structure.

 Using composites presents a number of challenges when compared to the traditional metal enclosures – the lightweight structure must still meet the necessary fire, smoke and toxic fume (FST) requirements while also providing shielding to electromagnetic interference (EMI).

TFP’s nonwovens provide the solution for this and in the webinar, Neil Gray and Mike Campbell will discuss how the company’s materials can easily be incorporated directly into the composite battery box structure to provide the required FST and EMI shielding functionality.
