E-mobility Casting Resins
E-Mobility Casting Resins: Glass fibre reinforced casting resins for the automotive industry
In the automotive industry, casting resins are used in versatile ways. The main areas of application include the encapsulation of electronic components or also of batteries, which are protected in this way from moisture or impact effects.
The resins are also used in vehicles as a base material for interior and exterior elements such as bumpers, consoles or armrests; the latter are then often upholstered or painted.
Task: Casting resins for application with RIM process
The use of casting resins in these application areas is particularly interesting for manufacturers of special and customised vehicles with fleets of up to 10,000 vehicles. Here, casting resins are supplied for the RIM process where, the two liquid components are mixed together in a mixing head and then injected into the corresponding mould.
For suppliers of e-vehicles, ebalta supplies casting resins for both interior and exterior applications, as well as the board material for tool production.
Plastic solution: Glass-fibre reinforced casting resin for the medium series
As a casting resin, ebalta’s product MG453 GF has recently proved particularly successful in use for the automotive industry. MG453 GF is a high-performance, glass-filled RIM system used on a large scale for small to medium-sized series production.
At ebalta, the glass fibres are stirred into the cast resin material before delivery. This results in a specific customisation of the material with regard to optimising stiffness and impact strength.
