Electric vehicles were first introduced in the mid-19th century and were a viable mode of transportation versus the gasoline vehicles available at that time as they provided more comfort and ease of operation. During the last few decades, environmental factors and oil trends have made electric vehicles a more popular alternative. Saint-Gobain Seals offers sealing solutions for the battery cooling system in these vehicles with zero emissions and fluid acceleration. The best part is that they are relatively smooth and quiet, making them very fun to drive!
We have collaborated with several of the leading electric vehicle manufacturers; we developed a series of high-tech polymer components used in the brake system of the Renault ZOE. The components include four precision parts (fitting rings, spring seat, collector pipe and magnet support) and were custom-built using multi-cavity tools and dedicated injection-molding at our La Rioja, Spain site.
