Powermers’ high-performance electrode technology platform is a low-cost, drop-in solution for energy storage device manufacturers making the inclusion into an existing product an easily accomplished task.
Powermers technology has been published in respected, peer-reviewed journals and validated by the US Military and universities across the globe. Not only that – it has been manufactured to pouch cell scale – one of the toughest milestones to reach for battery manufacturing.
Powermers polymer-coated electrodes help increase energy density in Li-ion batteries by as much as 15% with some electrode combinations. The technology also enables 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 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.
Rechargeable Metal-air batteries such as Silicon, Zinc and 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.
Carbon-based SuperCapacitors and Li-ion Capacitors 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 electrodes 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.
