Panasonic Energy Corporation announced a partnership with Sila, gaining access to its Titan Silicon, a nanocomposite silicon negative electrode. Titan Silicon is expected to optimize the Japanese supplier’s lithium-ion batteries. Another upside to Titan Silicon is that it produces significantly less CO2 per kWh than graphite. The battery materials manufacturer estimates that Titan Silicon can increase the range of EVs by 20% and is currently in the development stage to double that range estimate. Sila also states that Titan Silicon’s nanocomposite silicon material can reduce battery charging times. The aim is to reduce charging time to 10 minutes.

Silicon-based anode always needs a robust PAA binder to reduce the swelling of silicon particles. Here we would like to introduce BATTBOND 290S3 from BOBS-TECH. It is specially designed and developed for silicon-based anode. It can help to disperse the silicon-based particles and single-wall nanotubes during the slurry preparation. In addition, the following properties are available for BATTBOND 290S3,

  • High ionic conductivity: To facilitate efficient lithium-ion transport and optimize charging speed.
  • Strong adhesion: To ensure electrode stability and prevent performance degradation.
  • Flexibility: To accommodate volume changes during cycling and prevent cracking or delamination.
  • Thermal stability: To withstand high temperatures generated during operation.
  • Environmental friendliness: To minimize environmental impact throughout the battery lifecycle.
