ZEON to Introduce Newest Grades of Anode and Cathode Binders for Li-ion Batteries at AABC in USA

LOUISVILLE, KY -- Zeon Corporation (ZEON) and its North American subsidiary, Zeon Chemicals, L.P., will introduce their newest grades of anode and cathode binders for Li-ion batteries at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC) held during January 2011 in Pasadena, California USA.

ZEON's newest anode binder - BM-480B - provides three key benefits as compared to conventional SBR binders, including the industry standard binder, ZEON BM-400B.

  1. Low temperature: lower resistance and improved cycling performance at temperatures below 0°C
  2. High temperature: improved storage and cycling performance at temperatures to 60°C
  3. Improved acceptability of the lithium ion (Li +).

For Li-ion cell producers using polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) binder systems, ZEON's aqueous-based binders, including BM-480B and ZEON's aqueous cathode binders, provide safety benefits and reduce overall costs by elimination of NMP solvent handling and recovery systems. Additionally, ZEON's aqueous binders are used at significantly lower loadings than PVDF, enabling higher density cells.

Mr. Kimiaki Tanaka (Director, ZEON) will be making a technical presentation regarding BM-480B and ZEON's other Li-ion binders on January 25th at the AABC conference.
