MATERIAL INNOVATION
Powermers is the leading innovator, designer and supplier of advanced energy device electrodes and electrochemical coating solutions. Our high capacity electrodes dramatically increase Lithium-ion and Metal-air batteries and supercapacitor performance.
applications
catalyst
Powermers' high capacity electrodes are produced by combining traditional electrode materials with a unique family of electrically conducting nanopolymers. The coating provides additional surface area for increased energy density. Certain groupings of the nanopolymer also serve as a catalytic agent...SEE MORE
metal air
Primary Lithium metal-air batteries: Powermers' Li-air batteries store two-and-a-half times more energy than the Lithium-ion batteries used to power cell phones and other consumer electronics. The batteries provide long-lasting energy for low-powered wireless devices, and have been validated...SEE MORE
lithium-ion
Li-ion batteries: Powermers' polymer-coated electrodes help increase energy density in Li-ion batteries by as much as 60% with some electrode combinations. The technology would also enable the use of lighter materials to be used to replace Copper conductors and...SEE MORE

The coating provides additional surface area for increased energy density. Certain groupings of the nanopolymer also serve as a catalytic agent in Metal-air batteries.
Metal Air
Rechargeable Metal-air batteries such as Silicon, Zinc and and even Tin could be used in medical devices and new one-time use emergency management and military applications. Powermers' unique polymer serves as a metal-air battery catalyst to control the reactions between the metal anode and the Oxygen coming through the cathode. Powermers has a proven fully-reversible Lithium-air cathode and developing other Metal-air batteries to show high reversibility.
Lithium Ion
Powermers polymer-coated electrodes help increase energy density in Li-ion batteries by as much as 60% with some electrode combinations. The technology would also enable the use of lighter materials to be used to replace Copper conductors and increase the energy densities of advanced Carbon-based anodes that use non-graphite such as graphene.

Non-flammable Li-ion batteries that are needed due to numerous safety concerns such as using these devices in passenger commercial planes. Powermers' electrodes are compatible with solid-state Lithium-ion batteries. Our electrodes keep these battery's energy densities on par with their liquid counterparts and assist with maintaining high power as well as these features of power and energy are often lost with safer solid-state batteries.
Supercapacitors
Carbon-based SuperCapacitors and Li-ion Capacitors that are used to increase fuel efficiency and protect electronics from power surges. Powermers has shown that use of the nanopolymer increases the energy density of flat carbon used for SuperCapacitors by nearly 300% while working at 2.7V, i.e. no need to increase Voltage to increase energy density. This development means that SuperCapacitors using Powermers' technology can increase energy density without losing life cycles. Powermers is open to licensing the polymer technology to a SuperCapacitor manufacturer.

Powermers has also conducted early test-results using the nanopolymer electrrodes with Li-ion Capacitors. Tests have shown an increase in energy capacity of nearly 40% for these new emerging products and there were no signs of degradation of life cycles.
Advanced Materials
Powermers is actively pursuing licensing agreements for use of the electrodes in traditional Lithium-ion batteries to increase energy storage for applications that require batteries with a high number of times they can be recharged. Other licensing avenues include the use of the electrodes in batteries that use non-flammable materials for safer batteries, use in metal-air batteries used in simple devices such as hearing aids so as to make these batteries rechargeable, and for both electrodes used in UltraCapacitors or single electrodes used in Lithium-ion Capacitors.

The nanopolymer also has uses as a catalyst for chemical production electrodes, solar panel electrodes or as a stand-alone chelating agent.
