ActaCell has been awarded a funding of about $3m over a 3-year period from the US Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the production scale up of nanocomposite alloy anode materials for lithium-ion batteries to be used in electric vehicles (EVs) and other demanding applications.


The funding has come through NIST's Technology Innovation Program (TIP).

The company said that this new electric vehicle technology is in addition to the company's initial lithium-ion technology targeted at the Hybrid Electric Vehicle Market.

Recently, ActaCell identified the medium-to-heavy duty hybrid truck market as the initial best fit for its technology based on a set of rigorous tests run in conjunction with AVL Powertrain, an engineering, solution and testing company for the automotive industry.

ActaCell is commercializing this new lithium-ion anode technology-based on its ability to deliver lower cost and improved safety for materials used in pure electric vehicles, according to the company.

3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3M™ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
