Miltec will get DoD contract for its Li-ion battery electrolyte

Miltec UV has been awarded a contract from the Protection Logistics Company to exhibit the cell know-how to provide solid-state lithium-ion batteries utilizing Miltec’s UV-cured Gel Polymer Electrolyte. This know-how might speed up the development of solid-state lithium batteries.

Miltec is working with battery producer Saft to develop and supply take a look at cells fabricated with a UV-cured polymer-based electrolyte on lithium metallic anodes. The appliance of UV-curable chemistry in producing solid-state electrodes is anticipated to result in a quicker, steady, scalable, high-speed fabrication course of for making use of polymer-based electrolyte on lithium metallic anodes. Miltec says the method might end in 50% higher vitality density on the cell degree and a 25% improve in particular vitality.

This mission is aimed toward creating an overview for a solid-state battery electrode fabrication course of and exhibit cell-level efficiency for 2 varieties of DLA batteries: the BB-2590 rechargeable lithium-ion battery and the Conformal Wearable Battery (CWB). Miltec President Bob Blandford stated, “This innovation permits lithium-ion battery producers to supply batteries with improved security and efficiency at considerably diminished manufacturing prices.”
