BASF: New Licity® grade with improved properties optimized for anodes with a silicon content exceeding 20%

Anodebinder Licity® 2698 XF enables higher capacity, more charge/discharge cycles and shorter charge times

BASF has its series Licity . extensive anode binders for the production of Li-ion batteries. The second generation styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) binder Licity 2698 XF facilitates the use of silicon levels greater than 20%. In addition to the established features of the Licity product family, this binder enables higher capacity, greater number of charge/discharge cycles and shorter charge times.

In addition, Licity 2698 XF can be manufactured according to the biomass balance approach. Under this approach, biomass is fed into BASF’s production process and assigned to the binder. BASF is committed to aligning economic goals with environmental and social responsibility, from the raw materials used for Licity binding agents up to their delivery.

“The transformation of the market from combustion engines to battery-electric vehicles is becoming increasingly tangible. Obstacles such as short range and long charging times can be overcome by using our new binder Licity 2698 XF”, explains Thorsten Habeck, Business Director Fiber Bonding Dispersions & Resins EMEA at BASF.
