The use of lithium-ion batteries has revolutionised the way we live and work, and with a market that continues to grow rapidly worldwide, the future shows enormous promise.

During this hour-long webinar, we explore the battery thermal and rheological performance characteristics behind the tech, revealing how high-performing materials in the anode, cathode, electrolyte and separator can be improved. Following that we go on to look at heat tolerance and how choice of materials can affect both thermal stability and mechanical properties, influencing important factors such as overall battery performance and safety.

By the end of the webinar recording you will…

  • Have a good overview of the benefits advanced rheology offers in producing consistent, high-quality electrodes with high batch-to-batch reproducibility
  • Know how to leverage thermal analysis to select battery materials that provide optimal performance, safety and lifetime
  • Understand how isothermal microcalorimetry can be used to measure the heat flow of whole working battery cells to rank material selection and provide insights into thermal management
