Niobium Oxide Tapes

Anode Electrode Sheets

Niobium Oxide (Nb2O5) is a new electrode material with pseudocapacitive charge storage being introduced to the market for the first time as a potential anode material. It is capable of exceptionally high rate charge as well as discharge (6 – 10C), with good cycling stability (1,000 – 3,000 cycles) and minimal heat generation during high-rate charge-discharge. The unique architecture of the oxide material enables rapid lithium diffusion on a macro and micro-scale enabling enhanced rate performance.

NANOMYTE® BE-400E is a cast electrode tape of Niobium oxide powder. The standard anode tape is cast on 5 inch x 10 inch sheets of copper foil, single-side coated with an 81% active material loading. Our tapes can also be customized to accommodate different active material loadings, coating thickness, binder type (aqueous/non-aqueous), and binder content, as well as choice of current collector.
