CTD Launches Thermally Conductive Resins for HTS Magnets and Electric Motors

February 27, 2019

CTD was recently featured in the Cryogenic Society of America, Inc.’s Cold Facts magazine (Volume 35, Number 1), highlighting the introduction of CTD’s family of thermally conductive epoxy resins for HTS Magnets and Electric Motors (CTD-103 resins). First introduced at the Applied Superconductivity Conference in the Fall of 2018, these resins enable the reduction in the training time associated with High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnets while delivering associated quench protection to ensure magnet performance.

Additionally, this family of resins is being evaluated for use in electric vehicle motors (both automotive and unmanned air vehicles) as they deliver thermal performance that exceeds existing solutions in use today. By applying the same principles that underpin the sophisticated solutions employed in the scientific community, CTD believes additional value can be transferred to the electric vehicle motor market to enable increased performance in the smaller, more efficient motors being introduced by a wide-range of companies.
