Product Description

Aemion™ is a breakthrough material that is completely stable in both strongly basic and strongly acidic environments on a continuous basis, enabling a broad range of innovative energy storage chemistries and configurations. The material has a hydrocarbon backbone, which makes it less impactful on the environment than common fluorinated materials. By using advanced stabilization techniques, Aemion™ is able to compete with the most robust of alternatives.

This AP1-ENN8-00-X Ionomer can be used as a coating as well as a binder. Ink formulations can be prepared to be used in fuel cell catalyst layers. Commonly the Ionomer is being mixed with a suitable alcohol that is then stirred and poured dropwise with an appropriate mass of catalyst powder and water.

Typical applications can be found in Metal Air, Nickel metal Hydride and Solid state battery chemistries. This highly conductive binder material has an affinity for negatively charged electrode constituents. It is processable in low boiling solvents for use as alkaline/acid stable electrode coating or binder and is highly customizable for optimized electrochemical properties, application size and manufacturing methods.

Technical Specifications

Chemical Properties
Ion Exchange Capacity (IEC)
Ion Exchange Capacity (IEC)
Ion-exchange capacity measures the ability of a material to undergo displacement of ions, previously attached into its structure, by oppositely charged ions. It is measured as the quantity of ions that can pass through a specific volume and a common unit is eq/L.

In the case of an Ion-exchange polymer, it represents the total of active sites or functional groups responsible for the exchange and is the theoretical maximum amount of ions that we can load.
2.1 - 2.5 meq/g
Permselectivity is the term used to define the preferential permeation of certain ionic species through ion-exchange membranes. The permselectivity of a membrane is determined by the ratio of the flux of specific components to the total mass flux through the membrane under a given driving force.
90 - 93 %
Water Absorption @ 23°C/24h 33 - 37 %
Mechanical Properties
Elongation is the process of lengthening something.

It is a percentage that measures the initial, unstressed, length compared to the length of the material right before it breaks.

It is commonly referred to as Ultimate Elongation or Tensile Elongation at break.
85 - 110 %
Tensile Modulus
Tensile Modulus
Tensile modulus is a mechanical property that measures the stiffness of an elastic material. It is the slope of stress / strain curve of a material under direct tensile loading.

It can be used to predict the elongation or elastic deformation of an object as long as the stress is less than the tensile strength of the material. Elastic deformation is caused by stretching the bonds between atoms and the deformation can be reversed when the load is removed.

Tensile modulus is affected by temperature and is an important engineering attribute since we generally want to keep elastic deformation as small as possible.
Tensile Modulus @25°C 900 - 1200 N/mm2
Tensile Strength
Tensile Strength
The tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can withstand while being stretched or pulled before failure.

Some materials break very sharply, without plastic deformation, in what is called a brittle failure. Others, which are more ductile, including most metals, experience some plastic deformation and possibly necking before fracture.
Tensile Strength
Tensile Strength
Tensile strength determines the resistance of a material to break under tension and it measures how much elongating load (or tensile stress) it can handle before fracture.

To make it simple, it measures how much force we have to apply when pulling apart a material before it breaks.
