BASF and Tier 1 supplier L&L Products have developed a battery protection solution for the 2022 F-150 Lightning. The team reduced the size of the crossmember that is part of the battery system without compromising strength. The crossmember is a structural section designed to withstand high loads, keeping both the battery and occupant safe in the vehicle. “We were able to use a solution featuring L&L Products’ Continuous Composites Systems (CCS) and BASF’s Elastocoat 74850 polyurethane pultrusion system that eliminated the need for extensive redesign of the crossmember while providing strength, stiffness, and rigidity to a lightweight structure,” said Chris Korson, Chassis Market Segment Manager, Performance Materials, BASF Corp.
