Novel Coating Technology Press Release

Press Release

October 1, 2015

Transportation Electric Power Solutions (TEPS) Consortium (Israel) and Clear Metals Inc. (“CMI”, Canada) are pleased to announce the launch of a joint development Eureka project focused on “Novel Coating Technology for Performance Enhancement of Advanced Lithium Ion Batteries for E- Automotive markets”.  The project is intended to accommodate CMI proprietary technology for electrochemical coatings of Metal-Oxide compounds on powdered conductive materials comprising advanced cathodes. As opposed to conventional methods for metal oxide films’ deposition that are primarily intended for deposition on flat surfaces, CMI’s unique technology is capable of achieving high uniformity of coatings on even the most complex “3D” structures such as highly developed surfaces of graphite powdered particles as well as other materials used in LIB cathode and anode structures.

The project is further intended to implement the coated cathodes into the next generation Li-Ion Batteries (LIB) enabling considerable improvement of the endurance of the 3rd generation LIBs and acceleration of their inroad into the E- automotive markets.
