KURANODE™ is a hard carbon anode material used for lithium-ion batteries. As a natural plant-based material, it helps to reduce environmental impact.
Especially suitable for applications requiring power, such as hybrid vehicles. Suitable as anode material not only for lithium-ion batteries, but also for lithium-ion capacitors and sodium-ion batteries.
Wider interlayer spacing (d002) than graphite brings excellent lithium-ion diffusibility.
Volume change associated with charge and discharge process is smaller than graphite. It contributes to a longer battery life.
Usable with water based binders such as SBR/CMC
