SunForce™ BE/BH

Increased Safety And Efficiency For Automotive Batteries

Optimizing weight, size, safety and efficiency of lithium-ion batteries is crucial to accelerate the electrification in the automotive industry. With the m-PPE particle foam SunForce™ BE/BH, Asahi Kasei developed a material addressing all these issues.

SunForce™ BE/BH is a particle foam based on the engineering plastic m-PPE (modified polyphenylene ether). Compared to standard foams made of polystyrene or polyolefin, the use of m-PPE equips this foamed material with unique properties, opening new doors for applications in thermal management and fire protection. The material is certified with UL 94 V-0 (Standard for Safety of Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances) fire protection class by the Underwriters Laboratories safety certification organization and thus contributes to an overall safety.
