You face broad challenges in xEV battery production and design. 3M provides practical, scalable and efficiency-enhancing solutions.
To help you achieve the higher voltages and longer range required in xEV battery designs, 3M employs the science of thermal management. Collaborating with 3M, you can incorporate xEV battery thermal management solutions in your designs to help extended life, range and recharge time, and enable streamlined processes and faster assembly.
Explore our solutions for xEV battery thermal management.
Helping to improve thermal conductivity even in small amounts, this single, lightweight filler is up to 20x more thermally conductive than alumina fillers and 8x more when used in polymers.
As xEV battery pack designs continue to evolve, it’s more important than ever to address thermal runaway challenges.
Our strong understanding of battery cell chemistry, as well as technical expertise in manufacturing, including APQP/FMEA processes and the latest automated application methods, help us collaborate with you and understand your specific battery pack design. Our solutions are backed by material testing capabilities.
Assembly of xEV batteries is about performance – in efficiency of design and materials, in serviceability during production, and for drivers on the road. 3M bonding and joining solutions include adhesives that deliver semi-structural and structural strength, making them ideal for use with, or in place of, mechanical fasteners. Our selection of tapes and powder resins allow for excellent electrical insulation in precise locations. Our battery sealants can help eliminate time spent cutting and fitting, and 3M structural adhesive tapes are excellent for applications that do not require initial adhesive cure times.
In addition, 3M provides advanced lightweighting solutions that allows for the use of a variety of substrates. Our friction shims are a quick solution for stronger, more stable battery mounting systems.
3M collaborates with you on your assembly process improvements such as automated application systems for maximum efficiency and productivity.
Available in multiple chemistries to suit a broad range of xEV battery designs and applications, our two-part structural adhesives incorporate smoothly into your automated processes.
Creating functional and reliable xEV batteries depends on containing electrical charge. 3M offers a selection of scientifically engineered solutions.
These tapes and films, along with our range of solid epoxy insulating resins, allows you to choose the hardness, flexibility and dielectric strength for your specific designs.
3M also provides the technical know-how to help you choose and incorporate solutions for some of the most basic and critical functions of your xEV battery designs. That means adding dielectric breakdown strength to critical xEV battery components. It means fewer tape wraps during assembly. That’s just the start.

Vehicles depend more and more on sensors that are smart, responsive and dependable. Sensors need to inform drivers, read road signs, and talk to each other. They need to stay aware of dangers, obstacles and rapidly changing conditions. 3M science offers next generation materials, cross industry expertise and real world experience to bring proven solutions to your engineering and design challenges.
Magnet and thermally conductive epoxy adhesives. Boron nitride cooling fillers. Specialty electrical powder resins for enhanced insulation to motor components, and friction shims for increased power density without increasing joint or assembly size. These are just a few of the ways 3M can help enhance the design and manufacture of ePowertrains.
