BASF launches new Licity® binder with enhanced performance for anode materials with more than 20% silicon content

Latest News:

● Licity® 2698 X F achieves higher coulombic capacity, more charge-discharge cycles, and shorter charge times in silicon-containing systems

● Second-generation adhesive based on styrene-butadiene copolymer chemical system with excellent stress-strain characteristics and elasticity

● Especially suitable for SiOx system and silicon-rich anode active material system

BASF has expanded its portfolio of Licity® anode binders for lithium-ion battery manufacturing. Second generation Licity® 2698 X F
Styrene-butadiene emulsion (SBR) adhesives are designed for systems containing silicon (silicon content can reach or exceed 20 wt.-%). In addition to the existing properties of Licity’s ® product line, this adhesive helps enable higher battery capacities, more charge-discharge cycles and shorter charging times.

In addition, Licity® 2698 X F
It can be manufactured according to the biomass balance method. BASF can incorporate biomass into the production process, and the biomass is transported to the production process of BASF’s binder, and its active ingredients (that is, the renewable raw material part) are finally distributed into the binder products, helping to reduce carbon emissions in the lithium battery manufacturing industry. Row. From the raw materials used for Licity® binders to the delivery of the final product, BASF is committed to combining economic goals with environmental and social responsibility.

Thorsten Habeck, Business Director Fiber Bonding EMEA, BASF
Explains: “Currently, the global market is accelerating the transition from diesel locomotives to electric vehicles. Using our new binder Licity® 2698 X
F helps to overcome the technical difficulties of electric vehicle mileage and charging time. ”
