Avery Dennison Releases New Adhesive Tape Solutions for EV Battery Cells

Adhesives, Industry News,

Avery Dennison Performance Tapes launched their latest advancements in pressure-sensitive adhesive material solutions for EV battery cells with Cell Wrapping and Electrode Fixing Tapes. Both products are made in the U.S. for Inflation Reduction Act compliance.

Dielectric cell wrapping films are emerging as an electrical insulation solution for the arcing challenges within EV battery packs. The high voltages dispersed by cells can move to other components in the pack, resulting in shortened battery life and safety issues. In addition to providing electrical insulation, cell wrapping films offer corrosion resistance, a reliable bonding surface and desired aesthetics. And due to their thinness, consistency and durability, these films are frequently preferred to spray coatings. These films feature double-layer PET facestock options for dielectric protection redundancy and single-layer PET facestock options for lower cost. Films come in blue, yellow, and gray color options for various aesthetic requirements. They feature acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesives that meet cell producer performance expectations by passing peel, shear, and long-term aging requirements. The films are made in the United States for Inflation Reduction Act compliance. Learn more here. 

Avery Dennison's Electrode Fixing Tapes bind multilayer electrode constructions consisting of current collector foils, anode and cathode materials, and separator films in EV battery cells. These easily visible and compatible tapes do not contribute to unintentional self-discharge and feature polypropylene facestock that is chemically inert to prevent self-discharge due to DMT redox shuttle. Tapes are available in a green color for visible indication of application. They are electrolyte-compatible and offer self-wound, linerless construction on plastic cores with various widths available. These tapes are also made in the United States for Inflation Reduction Act compliance. Learn more here.
