Federal-Mogul Corporation has developed a protective product for high voltage cables that will help protect occupants of electric and hybrid electric vehicles in the event of a crash. The material, called CrushShield, surrounds and protects electrical cables, keeping the electrical system isolated from the rest of the vehicle.
- Meets requirements of new U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard regulations (FMVSS 305)
- Encases wire harness so battery cable remains isolated from conducting structure of vehicle
- Incorporates rugged, multi-layer fabric with substrate design, which together absorbs and disperses energy
- Construction helps manufacturers of existing hybrid and electric vehicle models meet new regulations without requiring electrical component or wiring redesign
