ARMOR is launching new current collectors En' Safe® for batteries, critical components to increase energy storage performance, a key issue for the development of renewable energies.

Support the development of renewable energy

The new En' Safe® range delivers more efficient stationary energy storage, both for home markets with batteries and solar panels in households as well as markets on which large global electric grid operators are present. En' Safe® components provide a concrete solution to manufacturers of Lithium-Ion batteries to increase their batteries life time by 20%.

After Europe and North America, ARMOR is targeting Asia

The new En' Safe® current collectors feature a specific coating for LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries. "These components are particularly used in Chinese electric cars and this will support our development on this market," explained Thierry DAGRON, Marketing & Business Development manager for the En' Safe® brand whose approach is based on customisation. "Unlike our competitors, we adapt En' Safe® films to the needs of customers: a specific current collector for each, depending on its type of battery (Lithium-ion or Supercapacitors) and its method of production," explained Thierry DAGRON.

ARMOR speeds up its current collector R&D for batteries

"New ranges of components for supercapacitors are being tested among several clients and the feedback is positive," said Thierry DAGRON. To go further, ARMOR is continuing its R&D in its joint lab with IMN and has also launched two new partnerships. The first with the University of Cleveland in the United States for supercapacitors and other with the CEA for Lithium-ion batteries.
ARMOR has presented these new ranges for LFP batteries and supercapacitors on the occasion of Battery Japan, the 1St world battery fair from 2 to 4 March 2016 in Tokyo, as well as during the IBA held in Nantes from 20 to 25 March 2016.
