Energizing and enabling e-mobility: silicone elastomers by MOMENTIVE
Nordmann partner Momentive offers LSR and HCR based material technologies, which meet and exceed demanding performance requirements of electric vehicles in a wide breadth of e-mobility applications.
The future of mobility is being redefined with the paradigm shift from traditional internal combustion technology to steadily growing and continually evolving electric vehicle technology. As advancements in e-mobility are made, the intrinsic need for advanced materials is ever present and growing. Safety, reliability and performance continue to remain driving forces in the specification of polymers in e-mobility applications.
Some of the material characteristics that are key to addressing and solving such complex challenges include:
- High Thermal Stability
- Low compression set without post-cure
- Self-lubricating properties
- Low viscosity
- Fast cure
- Low modulus
- Increased crack resistance
- Outstanding resistance to aging
- Easy to color
- Thermal conductivity
- Excellent electrically insulating properties
- Dielectric strength

For example, the Silopren LSR 3000 Series of self-lubricating LSRs have a long track record of success with all major tiers and OEMs in single-wire seals, radial seals, and matseal systems or family-seals used in electrical connector applications. Grades are now available with low volatiles, low compression set and/or long-term heat stability.
The Silplus family of heat-cured rubbers can be extruded using conventional rubber processing equipment, creating the potential to assist our customers in effectively meeting a range of cost, durability and mechanical performance standards as it relates to the e-mobility segment.
