PPG teams with Cellforce for battery solutions

PPG has partnered with Cellforce Team, a joint venture concerning Porsche and Customcells, to develop sustainable battery mobile solutions.

PPG will offer cathode binder methods, which are absolutely free of N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP) solvent, to the Cellforce Group.

The provider suggests the collaboration would do away with the use of NMP in making the conductive-carbon slurry that types cathodes for Li-ion batteries. NMP, which is broadly employed in electrode manufacturing, has been recognized as a reproductive hazard by various international regulatory organizations and was just lately recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), notes PPG, as an “unreasonable risk” to staff in particular conditions.

“PPG is eager to lover with the Cellforce Team to make the following technology of battery cell technologies that will define a new amount of sustainability for the electro-mobility phase,” mentioned PPG standard supervisor of mobility, Markus Vogt.

“Additionally, the partnership permits collaboration to offer important engineering enhancement to maximize mobile effectiveness and protection.”

PPG adds it is “helping car or truck, battery and element brands speed up the improvement of tomorrow’s automotive electrical power storage solutions.” The company’s elements encounter addresses almost every single region of Li-ion battery layout and building, aiding electricity density, services existence, protection, manufacturing throughput and lessened price tag for every kilowatt hour.

Teamwork: Making the EV dream reality

PPG supplies differentiated solutions for automotive electromobility, this sort of as sustainable binder alternatives for the battery mobile and coating alternatives for the battery pack, which involve battery fireplace defense, anti-corrosion coatings for battery packs/trays, dielectric shielding and thermally conductive materials.

The Cellforce Group at first develops and generates lithium-ion pouch cells for automotive purposes.

Porsche holds a 72.7% stake in the business, with Customcells keeping the remaining shares.

By 2025, the workforce is predicted to grow from 23 workers at present, to all-around 100 employees.
