Ascend brings new EV, battery materials to Battery Show Europe
HOUSTON, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Ascend Performance Materials is showcasing its latest materials for e-mobility 
at the Battery Show Europe this week. Among the products Ascend is exhibiting 
are a new color-stable grade of its Starflam(R) flame-retardant polyamides; its 
new Vydyne(R) AVS for damping noise, vibration and harshness; and Trinohex(R) 
Ultra, its REACH-registered electrolyte additive.

Ascend has developed a color-stable orange grade of its Starflam 525K 
flame-retardant PA66 that is laser-markable, withstands long-term heat aging 
over 5,000 hours and retains its electrical properties, including a UL 94 
flammability rating of V-0 at 0.2 mm. This new color-stable grade is designed 
for use in high-voltage connectors and busbars.

Vydyne AVS ( 
), Ascend's new anti-vibration material, will also be highlighted. Tailored to 
dampen the high-frequency vibrations from EV motors and compressors, AVS is an 
effective NVH solution that mitigates in-cabin noise without adding complexity 
or weight.

Finally, Ascend will also promote its Trinohex Ultra ( 
) electrolyte additive, which improves lithium-ion battery performance, safety 
and longevity. In third-party testing, Trinohex Ultra has demonstrated superior 
cathode protection across cathode and electrolyte chemistries. This protection 
leads to a 30% reduction in harmful gas generation and longer-lasting 
performance, especially in extreme conditions.

"Our goal is to bring new material solutions to the e-mobility space," said Ian 
van Duijvenboode, Ascend's director for e-mobility. "Our capabilities in 
application and design engineering, coupled with our extensive materials 
knowledge, continue to help OEMs overcome some significant challenges in terms 
of safety, passenger comfort and range."

Ascend is exhibiting at booth 10-C94 at the Battery Show Europe through June 30.
