IMS is partnered with a US manufacturer of fuel cell membranes that has developed a unique design and manufacturing process for polymer electrolyte membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) used in hydrogen fuel cell applications. Utilizing over 40 years of experience in working with Dupont's NAFION® membrane, IMS is able to offer a process that delivers low resistance, durable and consistently high performing MEAs for PEM fuel cell applications. The product line of membrane electrode assemblies offers the following advantages.
Ultra-thin (<30 micron) unreinforced NAFION® containing membranes result in high power density, low resistance structures.
Membrane where you need it, not where you don't.
N-111-IP tested by General Motors to be the longest lasting commercially available fuel cell membrane. IMS offers an MEA manufacturing line that utilizes state-of-the-art continuous roll-roll coating operations that are set up to handle the prototype and high-volume production requirements of today's growing PEM fuel cell industry. So whether you need one or thousands of catalyst coated membranes for hydrogen fuel cells or water electrolyzers, contact IMS to discover how your application can be "turned on" by catalyzed membranes.
Catalyzed Coated Membranes offer the following advantages:
