Micropure™ EG solvent

Micropure EG (electronic grade) solvent, a high purity grade of N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP), is used to prepare solutions of polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) for use as a cathode binder. Cathode slurries produced with Micropure EG solvent have ideal characteristics for coating on aluminum foil and for use in a solvent recovery systems. Produced in a world-class ISO-accredited plant, Micropure EG solvent meets the exacting standards for low color, and low moisture and metal content required by the lithium-ion battery market.

For example, the product specifications for color, moisture content and metal content are:

• Low color <= 20 APHA
• Low moisture content <= 200 ppm
• Low metal content, confirmed in testing for more than 20 metals, e.g., sodium <= 10 ppb
