Dow has announced the start-up of commercial operations at its Polyurethanes Systems House in Ahlen, Germany for its new Voratron adhesive and gap filler production line. It says the investment will increase the capacity of Dow’s battery assembly product family ten-fold to support the growing customer demand for these materials in the e-mobility market.

Dow says Voratron Polyurethane Systems products, such as high-strength adhesives and thermally conductive composites, are crucial to achieving the fast-evolving demands of mechanical and thermal management performance that different electric vehicle battery designs require.

“By 2030, more than one in four new passenger cars sold will be electric vehicles. Dow’s investment in this adhesive and gap filler production line is well-timed to capture this new demand,” said Dr. Esther Quintanilla, Dow’s global MobilityScience marketing director.

“The battery is the key to the automotive evolution, and this advancement allows us to serve the current and future EV segment. Dow is committed to supplying our customers with a reliable supply of high-performance materials for the battery assemblies, which are among the most critical technologies enabling this growth.”
