BASF introduces a new rubber binder for silicon anodes

BASF has introduced a new rubber binder designed for anodes, part of the company’s Licity product line. Licity 2698 X F is a styrene-butadiene rubber binder for anodes that have more than 20% silicon. The company says it has “excellent stress-strain properties and elasticity.”

“Hurdles such as low range and long charging times can be overcome by using our new binder Licity 2698 X F,” says Business Director of Fiber Bonding Dispersions & Resins EMEA at BASF Thorsten Habeck.

The company also says “Licity 2698 X F can be manufactured according to the biomass balance approach. In this approach, biomass is fed into BASF’s production process and allocated to the binder.”
