Inspired by: Thermal management is critical for vehicle electrification. When vehicles accelerate, Inverters can get ‘frying-pan’ hot and need to dissipate ~ 250W of heat. Removal of this heat is critical for efficient and safe functioning. In order to solve these problem and meet customer requirements in EV market, Dow developed DOWSIL™ TC-4060 which delivered transformative combination of high thermal conductivity, conformability, patented dispensability, and long-term stability to enable smaller, denser Inverters required in next generation EVs with improved drive efficiency and lower production cost.
