Battery Crash Protection Using Hybrid Structural Parts

Hybrid Structural Foam Enables Lightweighting While Meeting or Improving Crash Standards

Dedicated Use of Structural Foam Drives Weight Reduction and Performance Improvements

Battery packs typically extend across the entire underbody area between the wheels of a vehicle and must be protected from all sides. At the same time, manufacturers are under pressure to minimIze the weight and cost of structural components designed to protect the batteries against intrusion in the event of an accident.

Battery crash protection can be optimized by using hybrid structural parts based on a combination of fiber reinforced plastics and specially developed high-performance structural foam. The solution offers significant lightweighting opportunities, while meeting high-performance standards.

The Mobility Alliance, Henkel's advanced design partnership wtih engineering service provider, RLE International, determines precisely where and how the structural foams are needed, to optimize weight savings and performance benefits.
