The new BMZ UR-V5 batteries are mounted on a bike frame and can be removed for charging with a simple swiveling movement. To ensure the reliability of the devices, the company was searching for a partner for material and technical support.
Protection for permanent pedal power
BMZ needed materials that could be processed efficiently and precisely – preventing water from penetrating the housing even in the thin coverings demanded today. Another important aspect was the flame retardancy as temperatures may go up close to the battery. At the same time, the parts had to be as lightweight as possible to enable efficient operation.
Covestro supported the company with a durable, lightweight and safe material solution in combination with technical CAE assistance. Several battery components are formed from the Bayblend® resins: flame-retardant Bayblend® FR3040 forms the cell holder inside the Li-Ion battery and also the insulating plates. For the battery housing components, the impact-resistant Bayblend® T65 XF was used.
