Playing a key role in battery assembly and safety for electric vehicles
Electric vehicle batteries: The challenge of e-mobility
A new era has begun for the automotive industry – with major challenges, but also considerable opportunities. George Kazantzis, Corporate Vice President Automotive Components, is certain: "Those who can anticipate and solve the complex problems in battery development and assembly will have the greatest advantage and ultimately win the race." As a leading partner for the automotive industry, Henkel Adhesive Technologies, with its adhesives, sealants, thermal materials and functional coatings, has a great opportunity to set the course for the next generation of electric cars. "We want to pave the way for electric vehicles by enabling better, safer, and more cost-effective battery technologies," says Frank Kerstan, Head of E-Mobility Europe.
