ACESS Joint Societies Meeting – cosponsored by ACS and SPE

March 13 @ 5:15 pm - 8:30 pm

$10.00 – $20.00


Dr. Emmanuel Pitia
Lead, Staff Research Scientist at Parker Hannifin: Adhesives & Coatings
Solving EV Application Challenges: Innovations in Coatings and Adhesive Materials


As electric vehicles (EVs) advance in technology, the spotlight is on battery pack technologies. EV manufacturers are fervently optimizing designs for lighter, more compact solutions, aiming to boost energy density and reduce costs. Within the intricate assembly of battery pack systems, two critical requisites emerge: electrical insulation and thermal management. The former involves the strategic application of dielectric materials to ensure safety, while the latter relies on integrating high thermally conductive materials—potting material, adhesives, gap fillers, or gels—to enhance performance and safety. Parker Lord takes a pivotal role, developing cutting-edge thermal management materials and dielectric coatings. This presentation unveils key challenges in the EV industry, spotlighting innovative solutions within dielectric coatings and thermal management adhesives.

Dr. Emmanuel Pitia Bio:  Emmanuel Pitia, PhD, is a lead staff scientist at Parker Lord with expertise in product development and application of UV coatings, fire retardant coatings, and rubber to substrate adhesives for the automotive and industrial market. Emmanuel currently is working on the development and commercialization of UV coatings for the automotive market. Emmanuel completed his PhD in polymer engineering from University of Akron in 2012.
