Anode and Binder Materials for Rechargeable Li-ion Battery
KUREHA CORPORATION is one of the pioneers in Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) industry whose materials have been used for the first commercial LIB since 1991.
KUREHA KF POLYMER is a PVDF (poly vinylidene fluoride) binder for both cathode and anode, which is the most popular and widely used throughout the world. There are 2 types of products. W is powder and L is Liquid dissolved in NMP (N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone). KUREHA KF POLYMER has been recognized by the industry for its high and constant quality with a variety of products. One of its remarkable characteristics is high purity, which provides less swelling of organic electrolytes and higher crystallization.
KUREHA CARBOTRON P is the Hard Carbon as an anode active material. Its bulk structure hardly changes after repeated charge/discharge cycles or at the state of full charge. This characteristic prevents destruction of the anode and makes the lifetime of LIB longer and more stable. KUREHA CORPORATION is the only company who commercially manufactures Hard Carbon. CARBOTRON P will contribute to the popularization of HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) in the near future.
