Fine Carbon Fiber
Teijin has developed pitch based fine carbon fibers (PotenCia™) , which can be applied as additives for lithium ion battery (LIB) system.
PotenCia™ for High Performance Lithium Ion Batteries
PotenCia™ has many features compared to conventional carbon black and carbon nanotube (CNT), such as long length, high dispersibility, highly electrical conductivity etc. When used in LIB system, PotenCia™ indicates higher performance and can improve durability of battery with low concentration. Development of high capacity LIB with thicker electrode and/or higher density is now in trend and PotenCia™ can be applied with higher for those LIB, performance*.
