Innovative solution for safer specialty batteries
People around the world depend on specialty batteries for many reasons, including protecting lives; keeping utilities and telecommunications up and running; meeting mission-critical requirements for aerospace and defense applications; and enabling the safe operation of critical equipment in extreme conditions, just to name a few. So when it comes to ensuring the safety of these specialty batteries, failure is not an option. Now there is an innovative solution to help enhance battery safety.
Enhancing battery safety and performance
The use of DuPont™ Kevlar® MicroCore™ in the battery separator can help enable improved safety of specialty batteries by helping to prevent thermal runaway, the biggest safety issue for lithium ion batteries. This may be possible due to the high-temperature-resistant, superfine fiber structure and unique combination of properties of Kevlar® MicroCore™. Additional performance benefits, such as faster charging and discharging, may also be possible because Kevlar® MicroCore™ has demonstrated better ionic conductivity.
