Thermally conductive elastomer for EV parts

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (FST) has developed a thermally conductive elastomer that combines seemingly contradictory properties: It conducts heat well, but is also electrically insulating. FST is already testing initial applications for charging sockets, control units and batteries in electric vehicles.
