As battery production becomes more cost-efficient, many EV producers still face a key manufacturing challenge: the battery electric vehicle insulator. While the battery may be the most top-of-mind, the battery insulator remains one of the most important components of any EV. The insulator is what protects the car from the battery itself.
The Thermoforming Solution
At Deufol, we use thermoforming to develop insulators and other EV components. Thermoforming is advantageous in this process because it costs much less to develop the mold.
Thermoforming also allows you to experiment and works with a wide range of materials. In fact, Deufol has a strong network of material suppliers, so we can help you find the right materials for your insulator. We have also worked extensively with plastic material manufacturers and have developed a proprietary line of ESD-coated materials that are currently being used in the production of EV vehicles. Because of this experience in the EV market, we can provide a durable yet cost-effective material for your design.
We can also help you implement a variety of different designs and test them under rigorous conditions to see which design holds up best. The beauty of thermoforming is that it allows you to test options without overextending your production budget. No matter how complicated your project, our seven years of proven experience satisfying EV markets across multiple platforms and companies gives us the experience and expertise needed for all your EV applications.
