Mar 19-21, 2021, Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials ZirPro and Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics exhibited together in the 14th China International Battery Technology Exhibition (CIBF, in Shenzhen China), which is one of the most important events of the battery industry in 2021. According to the different needs of the battery industry chain, the two businesses, provided customers with high-performance zirconia solutions and comprehensive protection solutions for power battery packs of new energy vehicles.
With the continuous concern of environmental and climate issues all over the world, the new energy market is rising up in an all-round way. Domestic and foreign policies are obviously inclined to develop key industries related to "carbon emission reduction”,“peak carbon dioxide emission”, “carbon neutralization". China has become the world's largest market for new energy vehicles and power batteries for five consecutive years. At present, EV industry has become one of the core industries to promote world economic growth.
Continuous improvement of battery endurance and safety performance has become the common goal of enterprises in the new energy industry chain. In this way, the battery manufacturing companies should control more strictly the grinding process of key raw materials from the beginning to improve the energy efficiency. Zirpro has been engaged in the research and development of high-performance zirconia grinding beads for more than 40 years, which can be widely used in new energy, ink and coating, paper industry, titanium dioxide, agriculture, medicine, mining and other fields. Saint-Gobain ZirPro zirconia grinding beads Zirmil Y® is composed of uniform and fine grain ceramic , with dense internal structure, strict particle size control, uniform particle size and perfect sphericity. It is suitable for grinding lithium iron phosphate, lithium titanate, silicon carbon anode, carbon nanotubes, graphene, lithium battery ceramic separator and other core materials of lithium battery. Through efficient grinding solution of ZirPro, the performance of key raw materials of power battery can be significantly improved. Meanwhile, ZirPro's zirconia powders can be used in all kinds of structural parts and powder materials to improve their performance.
As a biennial exhibition, CIBF is sponsored by China Industrial Association of Power Sources. In 2021, the exhibition area reached 100,000 square meters and attracted more than 1350 exhibitors. The exhibition shows the core technologies and products of the global power battery, energy storage battery, 3C battery, battery materials and manufacturing equipment. The professional solutions and services for new energy battery industry provided by Saint-Gobain will promote the technological upgrading of the related processes and products for new energy battery, and will continue to push the technological innovation and sustainable development of EV industry.
