The company’s Trinohex Ultra, a unique high purity nitrile Li-ion battery additive, has shown improved battery performance and life, even at harsh temperatures and across different cathode and electrolyte chemistries. Adding Trinohex Ultra to existing battery formulations reduces the generation of harmful gases during training and use.
âWe have seen incredible improvements in battery life, performance and reliability during our long-term cycling tests,â said David McNeece, Ascend’s commercial director for battery chemistry. âOur additive works well with high nickel cathodes, reducing production costs without sacrificing performance. This, along with improved battery reliability and capacity retention, can significantly reduce battery system and warranty costs. “
Ascend recently won U.S. and Chinese patent litigation against Samsung SDI, making the technology more widely available in key markets.
Vydyne d’AscendÂ®, StarflamÂ® and HiDuraâ¢ Nylons are widely used in electric vehicle batteries, powertrains and components to ensure safety, reliability and comfort.
âWe have a strong portfolio specifically designed to protect and enhance lithium-ion battery systems,â said Ian van Duijvenboode, director of Ascend’s electric mobility team. “Our customers have come to rely on this portfolio and our knowledge of materials to overcome the challenges of production and operation.”
âWe have steadily expanded our portfolio, production assets and technical resources to better serve our customers, particularly in the automotive and electrical and electronics sectors,â said Isaac khalil, senior vice president for polyamides at Ascend. âWe are committed to strategic growth alongside our customers and it is clear that at the heart of much of this growth is the lithium-ion battery. “
Ascend is a fully integrated producer of high performance polymers, fibers and specialty chemicals used in automotive, electrical and electronic, consumer and industrial products globally.
The company will be exhibiting at booth 1517 at the Battery Show North America in Novi, Michigan, of September 14-16.
