Expanding Technology for Advanced Battery Applications & Fuel Cells

dexmetDexmet has taken the “Expanding Technology” to the next generation of advancements, the micro-mesh material manufactured by Dexmet is infinitely variable, and the proprietary equipment developed anddesigned at Dexmet produces expanded material with smaller holes than anyone else and produces material that is thinner than anyone else in our marketplace. The expansion process produces a very consistent product as far as open area, hole size and conductivity.


Dexmet expanded materials are perfect for Advanced Batteries Applications and Fuel Cells, especially where you are using multi stacks of materials and you need consistent conductivity from stack to stack also the expansion process is more cost effective unlike perforated material.

The expansion process allows you to yield higher amounts of material than what you put in, this is especially important when your application requires expensive materials like platinum, niobium, zirconium and titanium.

Battery Power 2017Battery Power 2017 is currently accepting abstracts for its  annual event, May 17-18 in Dallas, Texas. The international event is focused on latest developments and technologies in the battery industry, including  mobile/portable, wearable battery technology, as well as battery manufacturing, materials and research & development. The conference provides an excellent forum to discuss new developments in technology, market conditions and end-user requirements that are driving innovation, capabilities and features, application trends and performance improvements.

Attendees include top executives, technical managers and engineering professionals from original equipment manufacturers, end users and integrators, battery manufacturers and component providers.

Conference sessions should be technical and educational while providing examples of cutting edge technology and application strategies. End-users presenting about any innovative project they may be involved in will be given priority on the show program.
