PneumatiCoat Technologies (Forge Nano) and NEI Corporation (NEI) have initiated a collaboration to develop, produce, and market coated battery materials – cathodes, anodes, and solid electrolytes. The partnership will help serve the needs of customers interested in enhancing the performance of batteries through the use of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) coatings of active material particles. Key features of ALD-coated particles include improved cycle life, enhanced safety, and greater stability and abuse tolerance, particularly under higher temperature and voltage operation.
