Conductive and Highly Filled
Carbon-Polymer Compounds for Bipolar Plates
Bipolar plates in fuel cells have many specific requirements that cannot simply be fulfilled with conventional plastic compounds. In particular, the right choice of polymer and filler is crucial for mass production of economically attractive bipolar plates. This article identifies the most important requirements that carbon-based materials have to meet as conductive fillers in highly filled compounds.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
