Saint-Gobain: Providing Thermal Interface Management for EV Charging Stations

Saint-Gobain Providing Thermal Interface Management for EV Charging Stations

ABLE acknowledges the need to continuously expand solutions for the automotive industry. With the rise of electric vehicles (EV), there is a need to provide new solutions for the challenges that are forthcoming.

Saint-Gobain has solutions for electric vehicles to address the rise in new challenges in the automotive industry.

As the adoption of electric vehicles grows, the demand for fast charging stations also increases. To meet this demand, the latest generation of DC fast charging stations are equipped with powerful modules that deliver charging levels upwards of 350 kWh. However, such high charging rates generate significant amounts of heat, which can affect the efficiency and safety of the charging stations. To address this issue, engineers rely on thermal interface materials to dissipate the excess heat and maintain components in their optimal temperature range.

We will explore the importance of thermal management in DC fast charging stations and the benefits of using thermal gap pads, thermally conductive silicone sponge, and thermally conductive transfer adhesives in their design.
