For optimised thermal management applications with coolant contact

Thermal management will become increasingly important in the current development of alternative drive concepts. For this purpose, suppliers to the automotive industry need application-optimised materials. The Hamburg-based plastics distributor K.D. Feddersen relies on Hostacom grades from LyondellBasell with optimised low creep performance.

"For combustion engines, thermal management is already established and ensures the targeted control of the engine temperature depending on the load and operating conditions that occur. It is also of great importance for alternative drive concepts," says Wolfgang Wieth, Director Business Development at K.D. Feddersen GmbH & Co. KG.

In battery-powered electric vehicles, intelligent thermal management improves the possible range, ensures the constant functionality of the battery and can optimise its charging time – even at extreme conditions. Furthermore, the targeted use of high and low temperatures ensures climate comfort in the vehicle interior. Both systems, air conditioning and cooling, will form a common integrated system in the future.
