Our K-TECH® team carried out the Quick Check for a long-standing, well-known customer from the automotive industry in the run-up to a joint project in the field of battery technology - a customer room cover for a rectifier. This showed that the use of the innovative LSR process leads to the most optimal solution, as LSR seals on the one hand reliably seal and on the other hand withstand high temperatures of up to 250 °C without any problems.
With regard to the process flow for component housing cover, a number of improvements have been achieved using the 2K LSR process: in a single-stage production process, the LSR seal replaced the bonding of six separate silicone pads, which was previously necessary. The chosen combination of materials enabled the required chemical bond between thermoplastic and LSR. As for the hard component, an improved material selection was also able to minimize distortion.
Overall, we were able to shorten production times and thus reduce costs. High automotive results in high process reliability and increased technical cleanliness. The optimized design also contributed to the reduction of noise and vibration.
