Dexmet for Advanced Battery Applications

As an alternative to solid foils, open area expanded materials will require less binder to adhere the active material to the electrode surface. The reduction in binder will result in better ion and electron flow for better rate capability and quicker recharge cycles. In addition, the volumetric reduction of binder is offset by more active material resulting in better energy density within the cell. Using an open area expanded product also improves the thermal properties of a cell by reducing the internal heat generated during the charge and discharge cycles, which plague so many of the current lithium ion designs today, creating an improvement in the overall life expectancy of the battery.
