Ascend EV battery materials Ascend Performance Materials is showcasing its latest materials for e-mobility at the Battery Show Europe.

Among the products Ascend is exhibiting are a new color-stable grade of its Starflam® flame-retardant polyamides; its new Vydyne® AVS for damping noise, vibration and harshness; and Trinohex® Ultra, its REACH-registered electrolyte additive.

Safety with Passenger Comfort

Ascend has developed a color-stable orange grade of its Starflam® 525K flame-retardant PA66 that is laser-markable, withstands long-term heat aging over 5,000 hours and retains its electrical properties, including a UL 94 flammability rating of V-0 at 0.2 mm. This new color-stable grade is designed for use in high-voltage connectors and busbars.

Vydyne® AVS, Ascend’s new anti-vibration material, will also be highlighted. Tailored to dampen the high-frequency vibrations from EV motors and compressors, AVS is an effective NVH solution that mitigates in-cabin noise without adding complexity or weight.

Finally, Ascend will also promote its Trinohex® Ultra electrolyte additive, which improves lithium-ion battery performance, safety and longevity.

Our goal is to bring new material solutions to the e-mobility space,” said Ian van Duijvenboode, Ascend’s director for e-mobility. “Our capabilities in application and design engineering, coupled with our extensive materials knowledge, continue to help OEMs overcome some significant challenges in terms of safety, passenger comfort and range.

Ascend is exhibiting at booth 10-C94 at the Battery Show Europe through June 30.
