G3 – Fireshield™

G3-Fireshield™ is a non-flammable electrolyte that provides the safety of a solid electrolyte with the performance of a traditional electrolyte.

G3-Fireshield™

  • Drop-in solution
  • Inexpensive processing
  • Flexible separator that accommodates some mechanical stress
  • High ionic conductivity maintained over operating temperature range
  • Non-flammable and safer electrolyte
  • Proprietary composition suppresses dendrite formation; extends cycle life

Traditional Electrolyte

  • Large format production
  • Inexpensive processing
  • Flexible separator that accommodates some mechanical stress
  • High ionic conductivity maintained over operating temperature range
  • Non-flammable and safer electrolyte
  • Proprietary composition suppresses dendrite formation; extends cycle life

Solid Electrolyte

  • Only small format production
  • Expensive processing, not compatible with current lithium-ion process and equipment
  • Ceramic, rigid separator that may break with mechanical stress
  • High ionic conductivity maintained over operating temperature range
  • Non-flammable and safer electrolyte
  • Ceramic separator inhibits dendrite growth; extends cycle life
  • Nonvolatile electrolyte, high voltage cathode materials possible with non-polymer electrolyte

Key Advantages

  • Improved Tensile Strength
    Epoxy paste used in carbon fiber prepre results in a 2x improvement in shear strength of products
  • Performance
    Offers an unrivaled level of safety without sacrificing cycle efficiency or capacity retention
  • Patent-Protected
    G3 is securing additional IP related to other aspects of this core technology, which includes filings for international markets
