April 4, 2023, at 9 a.m. EST, 3 p.m. CEST
To overcome and reduce global warming green technologies for power generation and storage become more and more important. The use of green hydrogen produced by water electrolysis as fuel in fuel cell systems and to store energy offers an alternative to batteries or supplement these in certain use cases. Flow batteries for large scale energy storage generated by renewable energy sources are durable alternatives to Lithium-Ion-Batteries. Assembling these electro-chemical devices requires chemically resistant sealants, adhesives, resins and insulation materials.
Join our webinar to learn from one of our experts how to choose the best and most suitable material for producing these devices and to ensure safe operation:
- Solutions for fuel cells and the hydrogen economy
Learn how WEVO developed adhesives and sealants for the stack production for fuel cells and elec-trolysers. Low hydrogen permeable sealants based on silicone and polyurethane are highlighted in this webinar ensuring a safe operation. Furthermore, examples of adhesive and potting applications in the Balance of Plant such as humidifiers, coolant filters, air compressors and power electronic components will be shown.
- Engineered resin solutions for redox flow batteries
Stacking is crucial for scaling up redox flow battery production. Instead of manual assembly the use of adhesive joining techniques and liquid formed-in-place gaskets offers design freedom and allows simplified and faster production. The webinar will highlight WEVO’s tailormade solutions for flow battery stacks with a focus on All-Vanadium-RFB. These materials can withstand the aggressive conditions of the electrolyte during cycling of the flow battery.
- Resin solutions for Lithium-Ion battery and supercap modules and packs
The webinar will describe new developments for assembling battery- and supercaps modules and packs with thermally conductive adhesives, potting compounds and gap fillers. New developments of engineered materials to mitigate thermal runaway, thermal propagation of batteries and to suppress fire will be shown as well. These can be applied as coating, encapsulant and as pads on battery cells, cell heads or busbars.
