Ni-MH Battery Cell Enclosure

This is the first use of engine coolant as a cell-cooling medium for Ni-MH battery cells for a hybrid cross-over utility vehicle.  A special PPE/PE copolymer provides lightweight stiffness, creep resistance, and seals out moisture for this battery cell enclosure while providing resistance to alkali battery and coolant chemicals.  The high-productivity resin provided excellent molding productivity in thin walls.  A special film-insert molding process and secondary welding technology were also developed for this application. The unit saves an estimated 2.3 kg vs. alternative resins considered for the application.
