Visit CThru Metals at The Battery Show

CThru Metals is excited to announce our return to The Battery Show, the annual premier event for the battery and electric vehicle industry. This year’s show is a hybrid event with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, and our team will be available to both battery and EV communities at Booth 323.

Our team will be on site to share our latest product developments in expanded metal mesh. This technology has proven to be critical to battery and electric vehicle applications for its unique ability to provide high-level strength and conductivity, while still allowing air, water and light to pass through.

Join us at the show as we share free samples of our expanded metal mesh materials. Our knowledgeable team will also share videos and other collateral so you can see how expanded metal mesh fits into your applications:

  • Battery Components: Expanded metal foil is lighter and provides increased formability when compared to solid material. It is a perfect application for current collection due to its superior conductivity and the ability to tune resistivity by adjusting the expanding parameters.
  • Electric Vehicle Applications: In addition to battery applications, expanded metal foil also offers advantages in the following areas:
    >> EMI/RFI shielding for vehicle electronics, wiring harnesses, etc.
    >> Grounding and wiring replacement — works well as a conductive layer in laminated materials.
    >> Fuel cell construction.
    >> Weight reduction.the battery show and electric vehicle expo

As one of these innovators, CThru Metals will be appearing at Booth #2629. 

Where does CThru fit in with your next battery or electric vehicle project?

CThru Metals offers advanced technology in expanded metal for wider coils, precision-grade expanded metal mesh, and thinner gauges. Many battery and fuel cell applications use expanded metals, and we can work with you to determine the right material, size, and configuration for your battery project.

Why should I use expanded metal foil for battery components or electric vehicle applications?

Perforated metal and woven wire account for the two most common alternatives to expanded metal foil. However, expanded metal foil comes with a few key benefits that applications won’t see using either woven wire or perforated metals.

Woven wire comprises several strands of material, while expanded metal foil consists of a single roll of material with precise, regular openings. The homogenous design of expanded metal foil allows for more consistent resistivity and conductivity. It also makes the material more suitable for applications that require accurately sized openings for optimal system or product performance.

Expanded metals can also eliminate the yield limitations of perforated metals due to the lack of scrap produced throughout the manufacturing process. The elimination of waste is particularly crucial when working with high-value specialty or exotic metals. 

Each of these advantages makes expanded metal foil ideal for a wide range of battery applications.
