Rogers offers a variety of solutions for small equipment applications. Electrification impacts small equipment quite profoundly, with many types of small equipment switching from gas to electric power. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, the technology of choice for many new battery applications, require cushioning, sealing, compression pads, vibration isolation, venting, and thermal runaway mitigation solutions that perform reliably under tough conditions.

Rogers’ suite of Elastomeric Material Solutions is designed to provide designers with a range of high-performance materials that solve these problems. PORON® polyurethanes and BISCO® silicone materials are custom designed to address all of these application challenges. Further, the ProCell™ EV Firewall cell pads product line is designed to provide both optimal compressibility and thermal runaway protection. DeWal® offers high performance venting solutions to mitigate the risk of thermal runaway events and allow for pressure equalization in the battery housing.

In gas powered small equipment, mechanical liquid level floats have been the standard for maintaining the liquid level in an application. Rogers Nitrophyl NBR floats have been in use in carburetor and fuel level sensing for more than 40 years. First used as floats in automobiles and trucks, our floats now span applications in small engines for marine, lawn equipment and recreational applications to improve long-term reliability of the liquid-sensing system. The key is in our NITROPHYL® NBR (Buna-N) Technology. Unlike hollow-core plastic or metal floats which can fail suddenly, NITROPHYL® NBR floats are made of closed cell foam, giving the float a solid core that improves reliability and lifetime of the float.
