The thermal management of electrical cars is critical. The applications range from fast and efficient heating of the passenger compartment to pre-heating of sensitive electronic parts at low temperatures.
Improve Thermal Management and Performance
Our advanced multi-layer coatings enable the construction of more compact and lighter electrical heaters, resulting in smaller packaging, faster installation and reduced energy consumption.
As the recuperation mode takes over the braking function in hybrid and electric-powered cars, mechanical brakes are less frequently used. This may cause corrosion on the discs, resulting in a potential loss of braking power —a high risk in emergency situations. Our new generation of brake disc treatment is the ideal solution to this challenge as they provide the highest corrosion resistance. Additionally, this ensures longer lifetime and a shinier look of the break disc.
Oerlikon brake disc solutions — DiscCover™ Eco, DiscCover Jet and DiscCover Beam — also support the design of lightweight brake discs. This helps to reduce overall car weight that results in lower energy consumption.
Our solutions for EMI shielding protect your electronics from disturbances that could negatively impact functionality and safety. The conductive coating provides a thin and light protection layer designed to absorb electrical magnetic fields and ensure reliable performance.
Water cooling of heat sinks and other electronic components demand a resilient electric insulation between the water channels and electrically charged parts. Our electrical insulation coating solutions ensure their long-lasting reliability.
