WEBseminar

Process additives for battery cell production - Chapter 1: Wetting and dispersing

March 22, 2023

60 minutes I online I free of charge

The presentation will be held in English by technical experts from BYK.

Lithium-ion cells have become an indispensable part of the modern mobile world, from smartphones to electric cars – here, BYK additives are of great importance, as they make the production process more efficient and ensure better product properties.

In this WEBseminar we will provide an overview of BYK´s additive portfolio for the battery industry and will talk about our beneficial wetting and dispersing additives which make it easier to disperse conductive carbons like carbon black and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). This allows the production of homogeneous electrode slurries for an improved anode and cathode manufacture. The viscosity of these slurries based on lithium iron phosphate (LFP), lithium nickel cobalt manganese oxides (NCM), lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA), or various other active materials can also be reduced significantly. Besides, BYK’s wetting and dispersing additives are also applicable for the dispersion of ceramic materials like alumina and boehmite in separator coatings.
