Porous metal Celmet™ is to be exhibited at Hannover Messe - Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Europe 2024

Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd (Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka; President: Osamu Inoue ) will exhibit its porous metal Celmet™ at Hannover Messe, one of the world's largest industrial trade fairs, to be held from 22 Apr (Mon) to 26 Apr (Fri) 2024 in Hannover, Germany at the exhibition for hydrogen and fuel cell-related technologies.

Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Europe is Europe's leading hydrogen and fuel cell exhibition, with around 300 exhibitors from all over the world and around 130,000 visitors in 2023.*1

Porous metal Celmet™

Celmet™  is a porous material with a three-dimensional structure framework. It is more flexible (elastic) than porous materials made from sintered metal powder or metal fibers, and has a high porosity of up to 98%, has eight grades of pore size between 0.45mm and 3.2mm diameter, and can be processed into various shapes by cutting and pressing. These features can be utilized to improve the filling, retention and current collection properties of active materials in battery applications and are therefore often used as current collectors in nickel-metal hydride batteries for hybrid vehicles.

In addition to nickel, the line-up includes alloys Ni-Cr and Ni-Sn, which can be used in a wide range of fields, including fuel cell collector applications and various filter materials.
In the future hydrogen society, Celmet™ is expected to be applied to a wide range of applications and functions such as electrode materials for water electrolysis equipment and fuel cells.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand.
