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 1300°C for 1 hr(after the ink is gradually dried at 100°C for 1 hr and then at 800°C for 1hr).
If the intend is to make electrical connections to a current collector (mesh orwire), then the ink needs to be dried at 100°C for 1 hr and then at 800°C 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.
