Battery Cell

PolyPro FR® is a flame retardant insulation for battery cells and modules that provides dielectric protection in custom shapes without losing form in elevated temperature or cell expansion.

Applications

  • Cell Spacers
  • Module Covers
  • Module Liners

 

Battery Pack

PolyPro FR® is a flame retardant insulation for battery packs. It provides dielectric protection at a low profile to prevent surges and arcing between the pack and module even at high temperatures.

Applications

  • Battery Pack Liners
  • Busbar Insulation
  • BMS Insulation

 

Battery Charger

Power Systems with a DC and AC battery charger require flexible insulation to prevent surges and arching. PolyPro FR® is a flame retardant solution to help the unit run as efficiently as possible.

Applications

  • Power Supply Insulation
  • Battery Insulation
  • Enclosure Insulation
 


 

Data Center & Telecommunication Applications

 

Data Center Cable Tray Liners

The Gund Company understands the importance of airflow management in a data center. While proper airflow is essential for equipment functionality, it is also one of the easiest ways to reduce energy costs associated with running a data center. PolyPro FR’s material composition makes it an excellent choice for airflow management applications such as blanking panels and air baffles. PolyPro FR can also be used for cable tray liners and holders, preventing cables from tangling or snagging in a cable tray.

Cable Tray Liners

 

Features

  • Easy to install
  • Reduces cable snagging, prevents cable tangling
  • Blocks unsightly views or cables

 

Blanking Panels

 

Features

  • Prevents cool air from escaping empty rack space
  • Reduces energy costs associated with cool air generation
  • Custom sizes to meet any rack

 

Air Baffles

 

Features
