The electrically active material compromising the electrodes of most advanced battery designs are powders and require a mechanical support structure to hold them in place during the manufacturing process.
This support structure also functions as a current collector and provides the electrical connection point for the external circuit.
- Active Material Support Structure
- Engineered Geometry For Open Area
- Single-Unit for Superior Conductivity
Our expanded metal foils are also used in the fuel cell and electrolyzer industries where it is required that electrodes allow the flow of fluids. The unique open-area geometry of our proprietary expansion process makes our materials well-suited to be used as the catalyst substrate or gas diffusion layer of these applications.
