Product Description

GDL240 is a carbon paper with a Microporous layer and with PTFE. It is commonly used as a gas diffusion layer and electrode for fuel cells. Its through plane resistance is less than 15 mΩcm2. The thickness is 0.24mm and is measured at 50 kpa.

GDL240 is a close alternative to the discontinued Spectracarb 1050.

Air Permeability
Air Permeability
The air permeability of a fabric is a measure of how well it allows the passage of air through it.

Mechanical Properties
Tensile Strength (Thin Film)
Tensile Strength (Thin Film)
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.
