Trinohex® Ultra LIB electrolyte additive now available in EU
HOUSTON – Ascend Performance Materials’ Trinohex® Ultra is now REACH-registered and available across the European Union.
“The demand for safe, reliable and longer-lasting batteries will only increase as we continue to shift toward e-mobility and renewable energy,” said Dave McNeece, sustainable specialties senior business manager at Ascend. “In many ways, Europe is at the forefront of adopting these technologies and we can now support lithium-ion battery innovation and production with Trinohex Ultra.”
In third-party testing, Trinohex Ultra has demonstrated superior cathode protection across cathode and electrolyte chemistries. This protection leads to a 30% reduction in harmful gas generation and longer-lasting performance, especially in extreme conditions.
“Trinohex Ultra solves many of the challenges with lithium-ion batteries,” said Mr. McNeece. “Improved safety accelerates adoption and longer-lasting performance reduces harmful waste as the industry explores effective recycling options. Also, its effectiveness across chemistries potentially reduces the reliance on constrained resources.”
Trinohex Ultra is manufactured on world-scale assets and readily available globally.
