Binders for lithium ion batteries

Extending battery life

The electrode of lithium ion battery is generally made by mixing the active material, conductive auxiliary agent or binder with the solvent, and applying the solution to the electrode. Binder is used for binding active material to active material, conductive auxiliary agent or collector. We have the CLPA series which is crosslinking polyacrylic acid binder in our lineup.

This binder has been developed for use with high capacity Si type anodes. Si type is the emerging anode technology for next generation lithium ion rechargeable batteries. CLPA inhibits the collapse of the negative Si electrode that is caused by the repeated volume change during charge/discharge.

Performance of CLPA on Si and graphite composite electrode

Binder covers over the active material and firmly binds Si to the graphite.
