New Adhesive Tapes for EV Battery Cells

Avery Dennison Performance Tapes recently introduced a pressure-sensitive adhesive electrode fixing tape that is made in the U.S. for Inflation Reduction Act compliance. The new tapes bind multilayer electrode constructions consisting of current collector foils, anode and cathode materials, and separator films in EV battery cells. The company reports that these easily visible and compatible tapes do not contribute to unintentional self-discharge. They are a self-wound, linerless construction with various widths available on plastic cores and feature polypropylene facestock that is chemically inert to prevent self-discharge due to DMT redox shuttle.
