Miltec UV Announces Pilot Plant for Coating Lithium Ion Battery Separators

Joe Blandford, VP of R&D for Miltec UV, has announced the CX400 pilot plant is now available for testing on customer’s substrates at Miltec’s facility located at 146 Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville, MD, USA.

The CX 400 is a compact, high speed coating and UV curing system specifically designed for precision coating of ceramic coatings on polyolefin separators. The CX400 capabilities include:

  • Precision coating from 1-10 µm thickness
  • Water based proven UV curable binder
  • Up to 405 mm coating width
  • High speed coating and curing to 120 m/min
  • Can coat any separator films with a wide range of ceramic particles

This new high speed coating and curing technology can significantly reduce the cost of improving the safety performance of Lithium Ion batteries in all Lithium ion battery applications including HEV, PHEV and EV applications, as well as consumer electronics and grid energy storage. Miltec UV received a cost shared award of $1.8 million from the U.S. Department of Energy Vehicle Technology Office for the development and demonstration of this advanced technology.  This new technology could greatly impact the future, not only with electric vehicles, but with all Lithium ion batteries used on a daily basis. The company is currently scheduling potential customers that want to test materials or visit the pilot plant.
