Avery Dennison launches electrical insulation tapes 

The company says this line of tapes is engineered to address the challenges of insufficient electrical insulation in EV battery packs.

Avery Dennison Performance Tapes announced the launch of the Volt Tough portfolio of electrical insulation tape. The company says this line of electrically insulative, single-sided filmic tapes is engineered to address the challenges of insufficient electrical insulation in EV battery packs.

Arcing can occur between high-voltage battery cells and conductive components throughout a pack, including the cooling components, busbars, cell connection systems, heat spreaders, and other structural elements. 

The company touts the following features of the Volt Tough line:

  • Conformable options for curved geometries;
  • High abrasion-resistant options;
  • Various color options for vision inspection systems;
  • Flame-retardant options for UL 94 and other flame requirements;
  • High dielectric strength with thin, consistent profiles enabling higher energy density;
  • Instant bonding to enable efficient production.
