CHANDLER, Ariz.—Rogers Corp. is expanding its battery materials portfolio with a line of Poron polyurethane battery pad products that provide cushioning and vibration isolation for electric vehicle lithium-ion batteries.
Poron polyurethanes, Rogers claims, can withstand stresses in compression and temperature over an extended period of time, which allows them to maintain consistent levels of force throughout their lifespan. This consistency, Rogers said, gives the battery pads the ability to cushion EV batteries by absorbing shock to protect components that could be easily damaged.
Other battery products offered by Rogers include Bisco silicone foams and Arlon Secure silicone thermal transfer adhesives. The Bisco products are used to seal battery enclosures, helping to protect it from weather and road-debris damage, preventing electric shock. The Arlon transfer adhesives, meanwhile, eliminate the need for mechanical fasteners, which aids in design simplification.
"Secure silicone thermal transfer adhesive forms chemical bonds with the substrates with which it is in contact during cure, producing a robust adhesion that is resistant to heat, humidity and shock," Rogers said in a release, noting that the product's thermal, physical and electrical properties make it ideal for use in power modules.

Based in Chandler, Rogers develops and produces materials that provide safety solutions across a number of industries including automotive, where it offers elastomeric products for sealing, vibration management and impact protection. Rogers operates manufacturing facilities, joint ventures and sales offices across the globe.
