Component Lamination and Attachment Solutions for EV Charging Stations

As the demand for electric vehicles (EV) continues to grow globally, Saint-Gobain is at the forefront of providing reliable solutions for EV charging infrastructure. With the latest generation of DC Fast Chargers capable of ultra-fast charging rates of up to 600 kW, Saint-Gobain offers a range of materials. These include thermally conductive, insulated, and intumescent materials, as well as silicone and microcellular polyurethane foams to protect enclosures, dissipate heat, and insulate components. These solutions are crucial in ensuring the durability and safety of EV chargers, supporting the expansion of EV charging infrastructure to meet the increasing installation demands and performance requirements of the EV industry.

Saint-Gobain offers various attachment tapes designed for EV charging infrastructure applications. From simple level 1 chargers mounted on walls to complex multi-plug stations capable of charging fleets of vans or buses, Saint-Gobain’s attachment tapes are designed to securely attach decorative and functional components to structures or enclosure units. These tapes are particularly effective in joining dissimilar materials, such as medium surface energy substrates, to low surface energy substrates. Additionally, Saint-Gobain’s attachment tapes are configured to improve flame retardancy of the components, making them ideal for challenging substrates used in EV charging infrastructure.

Saint-Gobain: Component Lamination & Attachment Material Selection 

Saint-Gobain has a couple of materials that are best for component lamination and attachment:

V2800 Series

One of the product series that Saint-Gobain highlights for component lamination and attachment is the V2800 Series.

Saint-Gobain’s Norbond V2800 series bonding tapes offer a reliable solution for different applications. These tapes feature a black polyurethane foam substrate and a high-performance, pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive on both sides. With thickness options ranging from 0.8 mm to 3 mm, Norbond V2800 series tapes are versatile and can be used in various bonding scenarios. The foam substrate is designed to dissipate energy and stress in the joint across the entire bond, ensuring optimal performance. Additionally, the Norbond V2800 series tapes are certified with PSA B141835, providing an added assurance of their quality and performance.

Saint-Gobain is a trusted provider of component lamination and attachment solutions for EV charging stations. Saint-Gobain offers innovative products with a wide range of materials and technologies, including halogen-free and flame-retardant solutions, high chemical and aging-resistant options, and the reliable Norbond V2800 series bonding tapes. These all meet the stringent requirements of the EV industry.
