Processing / Improved Manufacturing Efficiency
Momentive has been developing innovative silicone solutions for the automotive industry for decades. As a global leader in silicones, we developed dozens of industry-firsts and we continue that legacy today. Our products are designed with performance and high-reliability in mind. Momentive has production facilities around the globe, controlling our manufacturing process from the base silicone all the way through to the finished product. This ensures you get the performance you need along with full quality control over all inputs as well as the finished product.
We support our customers with state-of-the-art research, application development labs and dedicated industry experts located around the world. Working with you, we will develop a complete process, from the first laboratory trials all the way to series production.
The switch from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles (EVs) is accelerating, powered by advancements in technology, environmental awareness, and consumer behavioral changes. With more advanced vehicles come increased levels of technical complexity.
These advancements also require new materials. Momentive’s SilCool products help keep critical electronic assemblies cool, functioning even in the harshest environments. Our advanced silicone materials maintain structural bonds and protect sensitive components required to keep electric vehicles on the road.
As the reality of autonomous cars gets closer every day, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are bridging the gap between traditional cars and the cars of tomorrow. These systems rely more on electronics and sensors than ever. Reliable operation of these systems is critical for safe vehicle operation. Momentive's product portfolio for ADAS applications ranges from potting materials in ultrasound sensors, low stress and low modulus materials for cameras, sealing, bonding and thermal materials in electric power steering and braking systems, shielding of entire vehicle control units and ADAS related connectivity modules requiring ultra-high thermal materials.
