Fluoropolymers like FEP, PFA & ETFE provide insulation for the wiring of components within solar panels and increase the production efficiency of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells.
They are an essential part of the process for converting hydrogen to electricity as well as in the fuel cell and electrolyser components.
Fluoropolymers are key components in vehicles being used in fuel hoses, hydraulic hoses, 0-rings and turbocharger hoses helping car manufacturers to achieve Low-Emission Vehicle standards. They also are used in EV’s (Electric Vehicles) to help prevent breakdown and leakage and reduce Green House Gas emissions. They are also used in the protection of Lithium-Ion batteries.
The advantages of Fluoropolymers such as being non-stick and inert offer businesses involved in meeting sustainable technology objectives great opportunity as they are light-weight, bring improved energy efficiency and give longer-lasting performance extending the life-cycle of products.
Lithium-Ion Battery Covers
Holscot manufactures components for Lithium-Ion batteries.
Lithium-Ion batteries initially powered the portable electronics we have all grown to live with, but now increasingly power zero-emission electric vehicles (EV’s), plug-in hybrid vehicles and stationary storage requirements.
Li-ion batteries demand long-term reliability, chemical and electro-chemical resistance as well as high temperature performance in specific chemical environment.
Fluoropolymers are known for their:
- high and low temperature resistance
- corrosion resistance
- chemical resistance to chemicals, acids & solvents
- high tensile strength
- electrical insulation
Consequently FEP & PFA are being used more and more in the manufacturing process, production and protection of Lithium-Ion batteries from chemical attack and corrosion.
Since the turn of this century Holscot have begun to supply several leading Lithium-Ion industry businesses with FEP for covering Lithium-Ion batteries, amongst other bespoke products in both FEP & PFA.
