EV Charging Infrastructure

Enabling fast, safe and reliable EV charging.

Modern white car plugged in at charging station

Supporting the transition to smart, energy efficient transportation

Eco-friendly lifestyle choices coupled with a desire to save fuel costs are driving demand for electric vehicles (EVs). Add on the larger industry-wide push towards lower carbon mobility and you have a clear, mission-critical need for expanded infrastructure. That means more charging stations and related equipment required to support it and better integration with smart grid technology.  

The bottom line? EV charging needs to become more convenient, more efficient, and more sustainable than it is right now. At Dow, our MobilityScience™ team is engineering innovative materials that can support the EV charging infrastructure of today and tomorrow.  

We’re exploring how to unlock the potential of the industry. Relying on expertise and critical insights in material science, we designed innovative and high-performance silicone, impact modifiers for engineering resins, and polyurethane options for key EV charging applications.

Discover how Dow’s materials can help meet the needs of EV charging systems – including charging guns, charging cables and busbars, charging station housings and power electronics. Need more help? Our MobilityScience™ team is here for you. Connect with an expert now.

Charging Guns

How can we help build a world in which passengers have access to Level III DC (Direct Current) fast-charging infrastructure? A key piece of that puzzle is the reliability of charging guns (connectors).

Incorporating our thermally conductive, silicone protection and assembly materials into charging gun designs can bring a more reliable driving experience to consumers and significantly enhance the EV charging process – improving reliability, safety, functionality, and efficiency.

Thermal Management

We have a wide range of high-performance silicone materials designed to support the transfer and release of heat generated from high-current charging gun cables, including:

  • Silicone heat transfer fluid
  • High-consistency silicone rubbers (HCR)
  • Liquid silicone rubbers (LSR)
  • Sealants and adhesives
  • Encapsulants and pottants
  • Gap fillers

Protection and Assembly

Interiors of printed circuit board (PCB) modules, charging gun connectors and charging housing cabinets contain sensitive components, such as capacitors, semiconductors and magnetic devices, and  power devices with high heat output.

DOWSIL™ silicone conformal coatings, pottants and encapsulants can be used in rigid and flexible circuit boards, connector pin sealing, sensitive components, and other fine-pitched designs to protect against environmental contaminants and heat while meeting varied reliability standards.

Engineering Resins

Public charging guns can face harsh weather conditions ad heavy use. To endure these challenges an extend lifespan, the thermoplastics in charging gun housing and handles need to be modified with additives.

PARALOID™️ Impact Modifiers enhance toughness and impact resistance, even at low temperatures, in various engineering resins for EV charging guns. Our modifiers also support processability and mechanical recyclability for reuse in other demanding applications.

Heat Transfer Fluids

Invest in quality fluids to ensure freeze protection and longevity for EV charging infrastructure.

DOWFROST™ and DOWTHERM™ Heat Transfer Fluids can aid in keeping charging station components cool through effective heat transfer, while helping to extend the life of the system.

Charging Cables & Busbars

Smarter, more intuitive, and more electric vehicles mean more complicated internal components. Electrical cables and wire connectors play an important role in vehicle design, whether it’s for converting voltage, streamlining communication, or enabling faster charging. With silicones, smaller more complex designs can be achieved.
