Our Certifications and Organizations
Our Goal is to Provide You With the Optimal Expanded Solution
Dexmet expanded materials are highly configurable to meet your specific application requirements. Let us produce expanded metal foils and plastics that match performance characteristics for your dimensional, conductivity, weight or strength demands.
Markets Served by our MicroGrid® Expanded Metal Foils and PolyGrid® Performance Plastics:
Dexmet provides MicroGrid® versatile expanded materials for electrodes in primary and secondary battery applications, fuel cells & hydrogen electrolyzers.
Though the attention given to secondary batteries is greater than ever, 90% of the $50 billion battery market is still comprised of primary batteries. It’s no surprise that these non-rechargeable batteries are so prominent – primary batteries play a key role in military, medical and automotive applications.
Fuel cell manufacturers are always focused on improving their product’s versatility, durability and cost. From new designs to new materials, there are many ways in which you may go about improving your product in these regards. And many fuel cell manufacturers are choosing to implement expanded metal mesh into their fuel cell designs to those ends. From foils measuring just 50 microns thick in precious foils made of nickel, titanium, zirconium and silver, expanded metal mesh offers many instrumental design benefits. This post will walk you through those advantages, and detail how it can work to improve the performance or cost of your fuel cell applications.
When they operate, electronic components produce heat. And if they become too hot, they can degrade the function of their devices. These products must be able to manage heat to maintain reliable, long-term function. Thermal dissipation and management is the means by which electronics maintain workable temperatures.
