Application Notes
  • Pic.1 and 2 show coated cathode and anode for Li-Ion battery. Pls click here to see how to coat an electrode sheet.
  • It is recommended to operate the coater under a fume hood. (Click Pic.3 for detail.)
  • You need a vacuum mixer to remove air bubbles inside slurry and to make uniform coatings (Click Pic.4 for detail.)
  • You may need a Slurry Viscosity Tester to make coatings consistent (Click Pic.5 for detail.)
  • You may need a vacuum oven to dry the films and remove binder after coating. (Click Pic.6 for detail.)
  • Rolling pressing is necessary to ensure good density and adhesion of electrode materials to the current collector substrate after coating. Please select a rolling press from here. (Click Pic.7 for detail.)
  • Test the flexibility of the coated electrode with EQ-MBT-12-LD mandrel bending tester. (Click Pic. 8 for detail.)
