Avery Dennison’s new electrode fixing tapes for EV battery cells

Adhesives giant Avery Dennison has introduced new electrode fixing tapes for use in the assembly of EV batteries. The new products are “the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of functional bonding and protection tapes engineered to make EV batteries safer, more efficient and easier to assemble.”

Electrode fixing tapes represent a highly specialized category of adhesive tapes. They are used to bind multilayer electrode constructions consisting of current collector foils, anode and cathode material and separator films in EV battery cells.

Avery’s new electrode fixing tapes are available with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene (PP) plastic facestocks. The PP facestock is chemically inert to prevent self-discharge due to DMT redox shuttle.

The new electrode fixing tapes feature electrolyte-compatible acrylic adhesives, and sport a highly visible green color. Various widths are available on plastic cores. They are manufactured in the United States, and are fully compliant with the Inflation Reduction Act.

“Our electrode fixing tapes build on our decades of success in supporting the needs of OEMs and automotive suppliers with a wide range of functional bonding and protection tapes,” said Scott Krusinski, Market Manager Energy Storage, Automotive, Avery Dennison Performance Tapes North America. “In particular, our portfolio helps EV manufacturers solve key challenges, such as reducing flammability, boosting dielectric strength and optimizing design and assembly.”
