Porocarb® – high performance carbon additives for high power Li-ion batteries

Master your electrode challenges with Porocarb®

High power battery applications face the challenge of temperature cut-off at high discharge rates, e.g. power tools. Battery cells designed for these applications need good electrical and ionic conductivity while providing a good thermal behavior. To address these challenges cell designers require a very-well defined carbon and pore network in the electrodes. While classic carbon additives build a well-defined carbon percolation, it is Porocarb® which in addition enhances the porosity and improves the thermal behavior. Working in synergy Porocarb® together with classic carbon additives provide porosity and an carbon excellent electric conductive network to bring your power cells to the next level.

Easy dispersible materials: the key to high quality battery electrodes

The non-agglomerated single particle Porocarb® powder is very easy to disperse and perfectly works together with state-of-the-art battery materials and processes. It is essential to use Porocarb® in combination with other carbon additives like carbon black or carbon nanotubes. Porocarb® creates synergies between these carbon additives and enables the best utilization of each additive, while keeping the overall carbon additive content low.
