Freudenberg Sealing Technologies opens battery testing lab

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has established a new battery testing laboratory at its North American headquarters in Plymouth, Michigan. The company says this investment will enable it to conduct in-house testing of batteries and their components, including simulating thermal runaway scenarios. The lab is also equipped to perform simulation tests that mimic battery cycling situations, Freudenberg said.

The new laboratory at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies will enable engineers to monitor thermal runaway and other processes in real time, using the data from these observations for their R&D endeavors, the company said.

“Freudenberg Sealing Technologies taps into its vast expertise in sealing, material and component design, and manufacturing to cater to various industries,” said Chad Bauer, senior vice president of technology and innovation at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. “The battery lab will offer crucial insights and the necessary data for designing EV product solutions. Our expertise in materials suited for fire and thermal applications dates back over two decades, originating from our aerospace products, and we aim to expand this knowledge for the EV sector.”
