The secret sauce

The advantages of Next-Ion’s aerogel when added to battery separators includes: chemical inertness, thermal stability, safe battery operation temperature up to 200°C, while maintaining good cyclability, capacity and power density, >10-50% better performance compared to current technologies depending on battery composition. We promote ion transference, which prevents dangerous hot spot formations (avoiding explosions or catching fire) at the electrode-electrolyte interface. We also lower internal resistance and decrease the amount of lithium plating.
