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

March 22, 2023

60 minutes - online - free of charge

The WEBseminar will be held in English by technical experts from BYK - 网络会议的语言为英文。
本セミナーは、BYKの技術エキスパートにより英語で行われます。- "웹 세미나는 BYK의 기술 전문가가 영어로 진행합니다"

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.
