100g Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Binder Powder for Battery, Fuel Cell and Supercapacitor Research,  MSE Supplies

100g Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Binder Powder for Battery, Fuel Cell and Supercapacitor Research

  • $ 9900


Product Details:

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene which consists only carbon and fluorine atoms. Compared with the Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) binder, PTFE binder has better chemical and thermal stability because of its stable CF2-CF2 unit.  PTFE binder is ideal for the applications in an alkaline environment as compared to PVDF, which will strongly degrade in an alkaline environment via dehydroflurination. 

The PTFE binder is widely used to prepare electrode materials for batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors. Research has shown that supercapacitors using the PTFE binder can deliver better capacity and cycling performance.
