|Silicone Multifunctional Potting & Encapsulation for ICE and Electrified Automotive Electronic Module Applications|
|Keywords: Silicone, Potting and Encapsulation, ICE & Electrified Automotive Electronic Modules|
|Albeit there is wide spread knowledge and experience existing with silicone potting and encapsulation in the automotive industry, especially with conventional under-the-hood insulating applications, emerging electrification with simultaneously pursued multiple power and drive train designs require new types of silicone conformal coating, potting and encapsulation materials. Rapid incorporation of various sensors and controllers in ICE segment with varying purposes also requires new types of silicone products. A lack of industry standards combined with intrinsic time pressure and design constraints creates problems for design engineers in material selection activities. Material requirements are more and more multifunctional rather than conventional single purpose. Generic pressures for cost reduction especially with electrified applications add more difficulty in material selection. This is why very close collaborative work is required between the silicone and automotive industries to deliver the right material and process technology solution package in time. In addition to the already established industrial silicones portfolios, Momentive has been carrying out collaborative development works with Japanese OEMs who were early adopters of the global automotive electrification trend. This effort has given Momentive a strong position when it comes to automotive electronics applications spanning from sensor, power control and other power and drive train electronic modules. This talk will address both present and future needs for silicones in these applications. For the sake of new engineers we will cover the advantages of silicone technology in automotive electronics and its expected performance. We will also review representative new products and applications and will discuss what technological hurdles exist from a chemicals and materials industry perspectives for the next level materials platform preparation.|
