Ready to power the future
Fuel cells have been around for a while, are still going strong and look to be the future of mobile power for transportation. With the reduction of carbon footprint becoming an environmental responsibility for all major businesses, the world is witnessing an exceptional surge in the adoption of renewable energy, with the hydrogen fuel cell hailed as the up-and coming clean energy carrier and complement to lithium-ion battery solutions.
We offer a complete portfolio of carbon materials essential for the manufacture of fuel cells. Our EnsacoⓇ and C-NERGYⓇ conductive carbon blacks provide excellent catalyst support. Their high surface area and high purity ensure low corrosion, ideal gas distribution and water management.
TimrexⓇ graphite powders and C-Sperse aqueous carbon dispersions control hydrophobicity and porosity which allows for fine tuning the gas and water transport in the gas diffusion and microporous layers of fuel cells. In addition, our Timrex graphites and Ensaco carbon blacks can be used as additives to provide electrical and thermal conductivity to plastic/resin molded bipolar plates without compromising mechanical stability.
