Black Diamond Structures, a manufacturer of nanomaterial products for the lead-acid and Li-on battery markets, has opened a new Battery Testing Laboratory in Austin, Texas. The new lab will provide comprehensive performance data on the company’s proprietary technology, Molecular Rebar.
Black Diamond Structures is in various phases of testing and product commercialization with over 100 lead-acid battery manufacturers. A sizeable investment in testing capabilities has been an integral part in helping BDS keep up with demand from its customers.
The new lab features 129 12-Volt testing channels and another 77 channels for testing below 12 Volts, allowing Black Diamond to accelerate product development and solution optimization for key customers.
“We are making great strides in battery development by partnering with some of the largest manufacturers around the world,” said Black Diamond CEO Dr. John Hacskaylo. “Using our highly advanced testing capabilities, together with the manufacturers we are building a vast base of scientific knowledge of battery performance when Molecular Rebar is introduced into the active material.”
“We’ve observed and documented the improvements brought to battery performance with Molecular Rebar in tens of thousands of batteries built on full-scale production lines around the world,” said Dr. Jeremy Meyers, Director of R&D for Lead-Acid Batteries. “To meet rapidly growing global customer demands, we have made significant investments in testing, automation, and data analysis to help our customers optimize our technology for their batteries.”
