EV power distribution systems must operate at higher voltage to deliver sufficient power to the vehicle, increasing the need for proper insulation and electromagnetic shielding. What is the impact of vehicle electrification on thermoplastic material property requirements?

During this webinar Robert Janssen, Principal Scientist at DSM Engineering Materials will share insights about:

. How low-ion leaching PPS results in better fuel cell performance
. How thermoplastics can be used to shield the high currents that operate the e-motors in EVs
. Crack-resistance of thermoplastics for busbar over-molding
. The solution offered by electronics-friendly polyamides
. The dielectric strength and ageing of engineering polymers.

There will be a live Q&A to address any questions you may have.
