Charged EVs | Aspen Aerogels opens Superior Thermal Barrier Heart in US to optimize cell-to-cell boundaries

Aspen Aerogels, an aerogel-based electrification firm, has opened its engineering and speedy prototyping amenities in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

Aspen’s 59,000-square-foot Superior Thermal Barrier Heart (ATBC) will create PyroThin cell-to-cell boundaries to optimize battery pack security and efficiency for the e-mobility and vitality storage system sectors. The PyroThin boundaries stop thermal runaway propagation and are optimized primarily based on the producer’s efficiency and demanding security necessities. World producers can use ATBC’s fast prototyping and real-time engineering collaboration to develop thermal mechanical barrier applied sciences. This middle goals to commercialize next-generation thermal runaway applied sciences for EVs whereas additionally offering customer-facing technical providers.

“Our technique is to leverage our Aerogel Know-how Platform into giant essential markets, particularly these with sustainability and electrification themes,” mentioned Don Younger, President and CEO. “The ATBC is designed to be the middle of our customer-facing work.”
