Products / Services on display at HANNOVER MESSE 2011:
Interconnects (including current collectors) have a role to connect cells electrically as well as separate air and fuel gas in case of use as separators.
The properties required for materials for interconnects are good oxidation resistance, good electrical conductivity, and coefficient of thermal expansion close to electrode materials at operating temperatures (700-1000 degree C). We can provide alloys to meet these requirements developed by our alloy design technologies without peers in the specialty steel market.
