Electro-Rite® AL003 Rheology Modifier

Electro-Rite® AL003 polymer is a rheology modifier that provides suspension and dispersion properties in alkaline and lithium-ion batteries. The polymer is tailored to be stable in potassium hydroxide liquid (KOH) electrolyte creating the perfect distribution of zinc powder through the anode cavity for alkaline batteries. The polymer is stable in water-based anode and separator formulations to create slurries for lithium-ion batteries. The slurries have good suspension qualities for carbon, silicon, ceramics and other anode or separator active ingredients.

Features and Benefits

  • Compatible with styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) and other polymeric binders
  • Compatible with super absorbent polymers
  • Easy to prepare mucilage that is stable for slurry preparation
  • Excellent carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) replacement in aqueous slurries for anode or separator binder compositions
  • Excellent electrochemical stability in either alkaline or lithium-ion batteries
  • High electrolyte tolerance, stable in high pH KOH
  • Highly efficient, use rates typically less than 0.1% solids in aqueous slurries
  • Powder product
  • Shear-thinning rheology for easier mixing, pumping and filling operations
