Solutions For Lithium-Ion Battery Production

In Separator Film Manufacturing, Electrode Coatings Application, and Calendar Roll Cleaning, the common thread is the need for a plastic doctor blade. The utilization of steel doctor blades poses risks to the lithium-ion production process and the final product’s safety. With steel blades, the gradual wear introduces metallic micro-particles, causing contamination that can lead to thermal runaway. This, in turn, jeopardizes the storage and performance of lithium-ion batteries.
