Event Details

This a Free to Attend webinar for everyone.

Attend this Free webinar from the Innovation Award winners Albert Giorgini and Elizabeth Knazs from H.B.Fuller. The winning technology described as semi-structural and structural flame-retardant light weight foam provides fire protection and structural properties for battery modules.  These encapsulations help build a safer vehicle for the future, by providing protection against severe damage to the vehicle, and adding an additional layer of protection to first responders/vehicle occupants.  This layer of protection allows more time to respond when a thermal runaway fire event occurs and in severe fire events reduction/delaying thermal propagation.

Learning Objective:

  • The safety hazards of lithium batteries 
  • How  polyurethane encapsulants can make Lithium ion batteries safer
  • How Polyurethane encapsulants can improve overall battery performance
  • H.B. Fuller innovative solutions for EV batteries


  1. H.B. Fuller at a glance
  2. Intro to H.B. Fuller e-Mobility Solutions
  3. Fire Protection Encapsulation
  4. Questions

Who Should Attend:

This free to attend webinar is most applicable to everyone in working in or closely related to the Transportation sector.  Technology managers, chemists, scientists and professionals in roles such as R&D, manufacturing, process/engineering, and technical service & applications will learn about this new technology and greatly benefit from it.
