The company’s EV battery solutions presented during the CIBF include:
Improve performance, lifetime and production efficiency of battery cells
AEROXIDE® Alu 130, AEROXIDE® TiO2 P 25, are used for cathode material surface coating to stabilize cathode active material particles, and to avoid cracks during charge/discharge, resulting in an increased capacity retention and enhanced battery life.
AEROXIDE® Alu 45, enables the use of ultra-thin (≤ 1 μm) and homogeneous ceramic coatings or is applied as ceramic filler inside the membrane, resulting in an improvement of thermal stability of the separator.
TEGO® SURTEN E, the process enablers contribute to improve the production of Lithium batteries which yield better electrical performance and lower overall costs. Evonik’s broad surfactant technology platform offers products from wetting and dispersing agents to defoamers as well as flexing agents.
Optimize material properties for light weight battery packs
VESTALITE® S curing agent, a high performance solution for sheet molding compound (SMC) material with low VOC. Its unique properties make it suitable for automotive applications in large scale automated manufacturing such as battery enclosure.
ANCAMIDE® & ANCAMINE®, a high-performance two-component amine curing agent products for various types of battery adhesives, providing a variety of solutions addressing different performance needs.
NOURYBOND® 392, an excellent adhesion promoter, designed specifically for Aluminum alloy surface used in EV car battery packs with low temperature baking circles.
Achieve ideal thermal management for EV batteries
AEROSIL® & AEROXIDE®, used in silicones, adhesives, sealants and thermal insulation materials in battery packs, can significantly improve thermal stability, thermal conductivity, and thermal insulation.
Silicone raw materials for filler treatment, offer high flexibility to build optimal formulation with desired viscosity, curing speed, hardness and high performance. It can achieve better thermal conductivity and flame retardancy.
Evonik is not only a materials supplier but a partner in innovation for the electric vehicle battery industry. Our global lithium-ion battery center was set up in Shanghai in 2022, It merges the expertise across various businesses to develop innovative materials for batteries with a higher energy density, safer performance and longer life.
Recently, Evonik announced the investment in a production plant expansion for fumed aluminum oxide at its site in Yokkaichi, Japan. The construction will start in summer 2023 and the plant will be operational in 2025. The facility will be the company’s first alumina plant in Asia, focusing on the production of specialty solutions for lithium-ion battery technologies, used for electric vehicles.
