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 fast prototyping services 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 power storage system sectors. The PyroThin boundaries forestall thermal runaway propagation and are optimized based mostly on the producer’s efficiency and demanding security necessities. International producers can use ATBC’s fast prototyping and real-time engineering collaboration to develop thermal mechanical barrier applied sciences. This heart goals to commercialize next-generation thermal runaway applied sciences for EVs whereas additionally offering customer-facing technical companies.

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