Process additives for battery cell production Chapter 2: Challenges and solutions

November 30, 2023

60 minutes - online - free of charge - available in two different time zones - only in English

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.

BYK additives are employed in many different use cases and applications. Today, we would like to share our expertise as well as discussing solutions and examples of use cases in the battery industry.

In chapter 2, we will dive deeper into our additives and give examples of different use cases of the industry. From dispersing LFP material to preparing CNT slurries, electrode or primer coatings and dispersing new materials for solid-state batteries, we will share some of our deep insights into the cell production processes.

Over the past ten years, BYK, in close cooperation with cell manufacturers and the battery industry, has developed an impressive knowledge database to solve our customers’ issues. These include agglomeration, increasing solid content, defoaming, and rheology questions.

Don´t miss the exclusive opportunity to:

  • Learn about challenges and their solutions in battery cell production
  • Find out about BYK’s capabilities and its role in the battery manufacturing process

Who should attend this WEBseminar?

  • Formulators
  • Lab managers and technicians
