Grafenberg, Germany -- Rampf has revamped its electro-casing resins portfolio to meet the growing demand for electric vehicles in China, the company said in an 11 Feb statement.
The German group said it has revised its product range in response to a commitment by the Chinese government to have 1.5 million electric cars on the roads by 2015.
Rampf companies Giessharze and Dosiertechnik will be presenting its range of custom-made electro-casting resins at the Electronica and Productronica exhibition in Shanghai on 15-17 March.
The company said its display would include special heat-resistant materials made of polyurethane, epoxy and silicone that can be processed easily.
In about 20 cities in China, buses and taxis have been converted to electric drive, the Grafenberg-based firm said, and the development of electric vehicles is opening up a whole new potential for power electronics.
On display at the exhibition will be the company's 2-component polyurethane-based casting material Raku-Pur 21-2123-1, which can be used for electric motor, relates, DC/DC convertors and control systems, Rampf said.
The event will be held this March in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in China. LMH
