A Leading producer of high-performance OS electrolytes
Silatronix is commercializing a new class of patented materials based on organosilicon (OS) compounds for use in energy storage devices, especially electrolytes for lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. OS compounds are non-flammable and stable at high temperature. These materials are well suited for use as electrolytes, binders, and coatings in energy storage devices. In Li-ion batteries, these materials can enhance thermal stability and safety, enable use of high energy density anodes and high voltage cathodes, and be cost effectively produced using existing manufacturing processes for silicone polymers.
Through its material development program over the last few years, Silatronix has developed an extensive library of OS compounds, formulations, and test data for OS containing electrolytes. This position can provide a “pipeline” of materials for use in the development of customized solutions for battery manufacturers.
Silatronix currently has 5 patents to protect the general use of OS electrolytes in specific advanced battery designs, as well as licenses from WARF and Argonne National Labs for background technology patents. In addition, the Company has the most comprehensive understanding of the impact of variations in OS structure on electrolyte attributes, much of which is being treated as trade secret information. The understanding of the interaction of all these factors provides Silatronix with the intellectual knowledge to develop customized electrolyte formulations to meet the requirements of the new batteries being designed to meet specific application needs.
