Mineral PIN FR for lithium ion battery cathodes
“Runaway” heat release in lithium ion batteries usually starts with loss of integrity of the solid-electrolyte interface (SEI). The electrolyte then contacts the anode, reacting and generating heat, leading to electrolyte decomposition, further reaction, and thus to cathode decomposition.
Phosphorus FR encapsulation for lithium ion batteries
Researchers at Stanford University, California, have developed a “smart” phosphorus flame retardant solution for lithium ion batteries. The phosphorus flame retardant is encapsulated in electrospun microfibres, held in the electrolyte between the cathode and anode.
Members of pinfa share the common vision of continuously improving the environmental and helth profile of their flame retardant products. This vision is coupled with a commitment to maintain high fire safety standards across the world, standards which minimize the risk of fire to the general public.
