Chandler, Arizona, December 15, 2023: Rogers Corporation (NYSE:ROG) (“Rogers”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its PORON EVExtend® product portfolio. Designed to address the challenges of EV battery pad applications and exhibit a flatter “ideal compression curve” shape, the PORON EVExtend material solution family now includes PORON EVExtend 71, a new robust formulation that maintains a high compression force on the battery, and firmer formulations of PORON EVExtend 43.
Pressure management for prismatic cells is becoming more critical as energy densities in cells increase, causing more swell even with rigid prismatic cells. The unique formulations found in the PORON EVExtend product portfolio combine a flatter compression curve with the higher pressures required for improved cell life in higher energy density prismatic cells.
“We are excited to expand our portfolio to meet the pressure management needs of the ever-evolving EV market,” states Anurag Tihaiya, Senior Manager for the Automotive Segment of Rogers’ Elastomeric Material Solutions business. “Pressure management pads can help prolong battery life in prismatic cells, just like with pouch cells. These new PORON EVExtend materials will enable us to work more closely with prismatic cell designers who are trying to both optimize cell performance and battery life.”
