Porous Ultra Thin Battery Grade Lithium Foil (80mm W x 5um T) for Battery Electrode Pre-lithiation, 50m/roll - MSE Supplies LLC

50m/roll Ultra-Thin Battery Grade Lithium Foil (80mm W x 5um T) for Battery Electrode Pre-lithiation

  • $ 1,29500

Product Details:

MSE Supplies offers porous ultra-thin lithium foil (5um thick) that is designed for uniform pre-lithiation of electrode materials. The pores on lithium foil can facilitate the electrolyte infiltration and electrode lithiation. The continuous ultra thin lithium foil ensures the uniform lithiation and possibility for continuous rolling processing. It is a cheaper, safer and simpler pre-lithiation option for battery research and industry uses.  

Pre-lithiation is a popular method in battery research to improve the electrode capacity, first cycle efficiency and cycling performance. Stabilized lithium metal powder (SLMP) is widely used for electrode pre-lithiation. However, it is very expensive and unsafe for handling. To overcome these problems, for example, Professor Yi Cui from Stanford University demonstrated that pre-lithiation by lithium foil can significantly improve the capacity of silicon nanowires based electrode material. 

Warning on safe handling: Lithium is very reactive in air. Please never open the package in air. This product must be handled in an inert gas environment.

Never open the package in air. Store in Ar filled glove box with moisture less than 2%RH.  

Note: MSE Supplies reserves the right to charge an additional handling fee due to special shipping/handling requirements for hazmat.
