Resources

Applications

This is a teardown image for ac chargers.
Thermal interface materials

With voltage ratings as high as 500 V for DC fast chargers and up to 800 V for ultra-fast chargers, dissipating heat from power switching components and providing safety agencyrecognized insulation is mission-critical for reliable operation.

Gasketing materials

FIPFG and sealing products simplify deposition for diverse enclosures. Adhesion to various surfaces, adaptable curing, -55°C to 150°C range assist charger designers in high-volume device processing and protection metrics.

Staking adhesives

Used wherever enhanced physical strength is required, such as around large components like capacitors, Henkel staking adhesives offer additional support. Resistant to fluids, salts and alkalis, they perform well under extreme environmental conditions to ensure long-term reliability.

Conformal coating

Henkel coatings defend circuits from environmental stress, offering operational integrity. Easy to apply and process, these SVHC-compliant, solventless, tin-free formulas provide UV and moisture cure-capability for sustainable protection.

Threadlockers

Market-leading LOCTITE® brand threadlockers secure and seal threaded fasteners, but also allow disassembly when needed. Ideal for EV charging devices, threadlockers prevent vibration-induced loosening, seal out fluids and corrosion, and keep bolts, nuts and studs firmly in place.

AC chargers

Home charging stations use AC charging often take much longer to fully charge a vehicle compared to commercial charging stations (DC). Developments are focused on energy efficiency and distributed energy resources.

Conformal coating

Henkel conformal coatings ensure electronic operational integrity by defending electronic circuits from thermal shock, dust, moisture and dynamic environmental conditions. Simple to apply and process, these SVHC, solventless, tin-free formulas are UV and moisture cure-capable for optimized sustainable protection.

DC fast chargers

Growing demand for ultra-fast DC charging stations will help avoid bottlenecks or overloading the grid at peak load times. Materials support DC fast chargers with thermal management and protection from harsh environmental conditions.
