|1||Made of polyolefin, does not emit harmful gases when incinerated.|
|2||Available in a wide range of thicknesses with excellent uniformity of membrane thickness.|
|3||Available with uniform submicron pores.|
|4||High porosity, for outstanding liquid holding capacity.|
|5||High puncture strength, for improved safety and reliability.|
Batteries are indispensable for mobile electronics products. Hipore™ is widely used as a separator in lithium ion rechargeable batteries and primary lithium batteries, having earned an outstanding reputation for high performance and safety. Hipore™ separators are under development for a variety of other types of battery.
Demand is growing rapidly for double-layer capacitors as power back-ups to preserve data stored in the memory of mobile telephones, VCRs, and other electronic devices. Hipore™ separators are widely used in such capacitors.
