RESCOLL develops conductive materials for electric cars

Rescoll’Blog / 3 janvier 2023

RESCOLL works on the formulation of thermoplastics composites in association with two spanish companies: Avanzare and Zeplas.

In the NERO project, RESCOLL compounded thermoplastics to obtain a fire resistant and thermally conductive material that can be easily industrially shaped. Thanks to the expanded graphite-based additives produced by Avanzare, Rescoll developed a fireproofed material formulation with improved thermal conductivity, that can be used in the automotive industry. Once the material was compounded, Zeplas injected the material that will be used in automotive parts.

This study financed by the Eurostars program made it possible to obtain injected parts for cars with a cooling function in the engine. By using thermally conductive thermoplastics, injected parts would replace metals, making the structure lighter, but also would reduce production cost and have a significant positive effect on the environment.

This project has received funding from the Eurostars-2 joint programme with co-funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, supported by BPI France.
