MATERIALS (SOFC, SOEC, PCFC)

fuelcellmaterials was established in 2000 to commercialize innovative ceramic materials technology and products as a wholly owned division of NexcerisThese technologies and products are suited to the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) and fuel processors, which include: test fixtures, powders, pastes catalysts and components.

fuelcellmaterials is backed by its dedicated staff of material scientists and engineers who deliver high-quality materials and assist in helping our customers meet their needs. This high-level of expertise allows our staff to quickly and accurately tailor our powders and components to fit the needs and processes of our customers. These changes can be as simple as a physical property change or as complex streamlining to a material to work with specific applications.

Our Material Products

POWDERS

fuelcellmaterials offers standard and tailored anodes, cathodes and electrolyte powders, many of which are available in quantities ranging from 150 grams to industrial volumes of tons per year. All powders are manufactured at rigorous quality standards that ensure reproducibility and are supplied with complete characterization documentation.

SUBSTRATES

fuelcellmaterials offers a variety of substrate components for the development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC). Gadolinium Doped Ceria (GDC or CGO), Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia, and our patented HionicTM substrates are available in multiple sizes. 20 mm to 32 mm buttons and 5 cm x 5 cm sizes are available.

CELLS

fuelcellmaterials offers a variety of complete and partial cells for the development of solid oxide fuel cells. All electrolyte supported cells are based off of our HionicTM substrate support. The anode supported cells use a NiYSZ anode support. Both anode and electrolyte supported cells are available in button and planar squares.

EQUIPMENT

Whether you’re testing anode button cells or large 10 cm x 10 cm electrolyte supported cells, fuelcellmaterials has the equipment needed to gather successful results. We are the exclusive supplier of the Norecs ProbostatTM button cell test fixture. Over the years we have improved our planar test fixture design to ensure reproducible data is collected.

All of our fixtures can be incorporated into complete systems with a furnace and test stand.
