Cabot is the leading provider of performance-enabling additives for advanced batteries in applications from energy storage to smartphones and hybrid vehicles. Our conductive additives allow lithium ion battery developers to save cost and increase performance by enabling optimal conductivity in the cell to improve power and energy density. Our additives for advanced lead acid batteries enable new levels of performance for cycle life, charge acceptance and depth of discharge by mitigating sulfation, thus allowing the use of cost-effective lead acid technology to compete in new, high value applications. In addition, our emerging cathode synthesis technologies promise new levels of performance unreachable in existing lithium ion chemistries.
Cabot has developed two new families of performance additives to meet the needs of the fast-growing advanced battery market.
Cabot's PBX™ performance additives are designed to enable lead acid batteries to last longer under repeated cycling and to accept recharging energy faster at lower cost than the current solution of oversizing the battery. PBX additives prolong battery life by reducing the effects of sulfation on the negative plate, the primary cause of short lifetimes in lead-acid batteries used in demanding applications.
PBX additives improve the performance of Lead Acid batteries used in
- Micro-hybrid and hybrid (start-stop) vehicles
- Energy storage (grid) applications
- Motive applications
- Telecom applications
Cabot's LITX™ conductive additives are designed for high power and high energy density lithium-ion battery applications. LITX additives provide exceptional conductivity at normal loadings while simplifying use in manufacturing operations.
LITX additives improve the performance of Lithium Ion batteries used in
- Consumer/portable electronics
- Electric vehicles
- Hybrid vehicles
- Energy storage (grid)
