Press Release | April 26, 2021

BETAFORCE™ Thermal Conductive Adhesives Win in Sustainability Category for EV Battery Assembly

WILMINGTON, Del. April 26, 2021 — DuPont Mobility & Materials is proud to announce that it has won a prestigious silver Edison Award in the Sustainability category for BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC thermally conductive structural adhesives. Named after Thomas Alva Edison, the Edison Awards have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders in the world since 1987.

DuPont collaborated closely with Audi to develop a bonding material to support super-fast charging for the Audi e-tron. Optimized with BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC, the Audi e-tron battery maintains optimal temperature during charging and driving, helps deliver a range of more than 400 kilometers and supports super-fast 150kW charging.

BETAFORCE™ TC thermal-conductive 2K adhesives support the rapidly growing vehicle electrification space. These adhesives can significantly reduce the number of components needed for battery pack assembly, optimizing cost for battery pack design.  Additionally, BETAFORCE™ TC allows for the fast dispensing needed to support high-volume production.

“As a past honoree, we are especially proud of this continued recognition of our solutions,” said Andreas Lutz, Global Technology Leader, DuPont Mobility & Materials. “Sustainability is important to our organization and innovations that support reduced CO2 emissions are crucial to advances in evolving mobility platforms.”

BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC thermally conductive structural adhesives were chosen as the 2021 silver award winner by a panel of judges comprised of more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics. Award nominees must represent "game changing" products as well as excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria: concept, value, delivery, and impact.

"DuPont continues to impress us year after year with their Edison Award entries," said Edison Universe Executive Director Frank Bonafilia. "Their 2021 entry for BETAFORCE™ 2800 TC thermally conductive structural adhesives is a groundbreaking and environmentally-friendly contribution to the automotive industry, and that's ultimately why they were chosen as a winner in the Sustainability: Environmentally Friendly category."
