NickelYSZ Composite Anode Ink offers good adhesion to the dense electrolyte surfacewhich can enhance your overall cell performance. This ink is made using ahigh-quality ink manufacturing processes that provide a screen printable inkfor easy incorporation into your own cell manufacturing process.
Formulation: 66% byweight NiO and 34% by weight (Y2O3)0.08(ZrO2)0.92
Solids Loading: 73 - 77% by weight
Typical Use Guidelines:
This is a great ink for making anode catalyst layers for SOFC applications.
Stirring the ink before use is highly recommended. For best results, the ink should be stirred with a spatula or a glass rod to achieve an even consistency prior to use.
In order to establish a catalyst layer that is well-bonded to the electrolyte,anode ink applied electrolytes need to be sintered at 1300C for 1 hr(after the ink is gradually dried at 100C for 1 hr and then at 800C for 1hr).
If the intend is to make electrical connections to a current collector (mesh orwire), then the ink needs to be dried at 100C for 1 hr and then at 800C for1 hr to have good bonding with the current collector mesh or wire.
This ink can be used for screen printing for generating electrical connections for wire attachments.
