Porocarb® is an innovative platform of synthetic macro-porous carbon materials. The single particles of Porocarb® contain a well-defined network of interconnected macro-pores which can be filled with liquids, gases or solids. The pores serve as reservoirs, transport routes, filters or anchor points. Porocarb® can be tuned from the mechanically stable backbone to the pores and opens the opportunity to incorporate macro-pores in electrodes – an innovative design factor delivering benefits for next generation systems.
Porocarb® – Open and interconnected porosity in one particle
The innovative carbon-platform
Porocarb® - Carbon Tunability
Our Porocarb® product portfolio is based on various hard and soft carbons offering different grades of porosity. Through post treatment of these base carbons we shape the ideal carbon candidates for various applications e.g. Li-ion batteries. The freedom to customize multiple parameters of Porocarb® particles enables you to get the most out of your electrochemical system.
Tailored Porocarb® creates synergies with carbon black and carbon nanotube additive mixture for Li-ion batteries
Porocarb® offers performance and processing advantages by harnessing synergies in the carbon additive mixture. Replacing a part of your existing carbon additive mix, e.g. as binary or trinary mixture, will maximize the performance of your formulation. Hereby harnessing the advantages of long and short-range conductivity (CB + CNT) as well as enhancing ion-transport via Porocarb.
