BASF successfully developed plastic materials -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Plastic materials for battery system components developed by BASF -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

A few days ago, Dow Technologies, which has a deep layout in the field of lithium battery materials, announced that it plans to invest in the establishment of Guangdong Dow Picea Hydrogen Energy Technology Co., Ltd. The new company is mainly engaged in the development and sales of materials such as hydrogen fuel cell membrane electrode (MEA).

This is not the first enterprise to deploy hydrogen energy cross-border, nor will it be the last.

According to foreign media, BASF, a large German chemical company, also intends to enter the field of fuel cells. Through cooperation with Joma Polytec, a subsidiary of Daimler AG, and Mercedes Benz Fuel Cell Co., Ltd., BASF's engineering plastic Ultramid has been successfully used to manufacture various fuel cell system components.

This solution is used as the standard configuration of the new Mercedes GLCF-CELL, which combines fuel cells with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

Stefan Heinz, deputy director of plastic technology development of Joma PolytecGmbH, said that "thanks to BASF's extensive product portfolio and the expertise of all relevant parties, we have taken an important step in the development of fuel cell series".

According to the data, BASF is a large international chemical company. Its business mainly focuses on chemicals and plastics. At the same time, the company has also set foot in lithium battery, natural gas, medicine and other fields. In the cross industry evaluation of all German companies, BASF ranked second.

In 2012, the development of lithium battery industry started a prairie fire. BASF immediately set up a lithium battery material business department and began to cross the border into the lithium battery field. On the eve of the outbreak of new energy vehicles, BASF deployed troops around the world.

At that time, BASF was just a newcomer in the lithium battery industry, but through a series of extensive expansion, it quickly obtained patents, technologies and manufacturing capabilities related to lithium battery materials, and became one of the world's leading enterprises in the field of lithium battery materials.

It is reported that BASF has invested hundreds of millions of euros in the R&D, strategic cooperation, M&A, construction and expansion of production bases of battery materials. At present, it has laid out production bases for high-performance battery functional materials in Europe, the United States and the Asia Pacific region.

Now, the boom of hydrogen energy development has arrived. Will BASF make the same big investment? Industry insiders believe that it is very likely that its cooperation with Daimler and Mercedes Benz is an important signal.

After successfully testing all components, BASF's two glass fiber reinforced Ultraids? The brand is now used as the standard for manufacturing anode and cathode end plates in fuel cells.
