In a joint program Borealis and PEM Motion have been working on making a lithium-ion battery module lighter, more sustainable and affordable by using polypropylene material instead of metals and other plastics.
Based on our insights we want to provide you with the top 10 tips on what to consider when you start designing your battery module casing or cell holder for polypropylene usage.

This Webinar is for material experts and design/development engineers of lithium-ion batteries who want to…

  • understand the opportunities and limits of designing lithium-ion battery module components with polypropylene
  • understand legal requirements and tests to be performed on material and application level
  • experience how digital pre-testing and integrative simulation can minimize the risk of design failures
  • experience how to close the gap between application-and material testing

Register for free, learn from industry experts, and get access to advanced technical polyolefin data and simulation tools. As this is an EXCLUSIVE LIVE event, NO RECORDING will be made available – so make sure to join our live session.
