detailed product information
BASF’s Licity® product range for lithium-ion battery binders are suitable for pure graphite as well as silicon-containing anodes. Licity® lithium-ion battery binders help to prevent electrode swelling, thus enabling higher battery capacities. Batteries profit from our binders with increased charge cycles and reduced charging times. Licity® lithium-ion battery binders also enhance performance in low temperature environments where Li-ion batteries traditionally do not perform well. Additionally, our binders save fossil resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with our more sustainably produced binders based on our certified Biomass Balance Approach.
“Strong and capable lithium batteries lead the way for electric mobility to reach mass adoption. With Licity® anode binders we aim to push the capabilities of Li-ion technology further – by improving key performance factors such as capacity and low temperature behavior.”
