|SGL Carbon Corporation is a proud sponsor of
the New Jersey Genesis zero emission vehicle. We supply the graphite
composite plates that H Power uses in their fuel cell stack to feed fuel
and air, and efficiently collect the power to enable propulsion.
Graphite plates and papers constitute the bulk of most fuel
cell stacks and their high cost is an obstacle to widespread
commercialization of this environmentally benign technology. SGL Carbon is
preparing to mass manufacture cost effective components. We partner with
preferred customers to develop and produce tailor-made components and
sub-systems for fuel cells targeted at power generation, portable and
SGL Carbon currently produces and supplies large volumes of SIGRACET®
bipolar plates of graphite-polymer composite material. The plates have
high electrical conductivity, low porosity, superior mechanical properties
and excellent surface finish. Prototype plates are molded and
high-speed machined. Production plates with integral flow channels
are molded to size.
SIGRACET® Gas Diffusion Media are non-woven papers and felts
specifically designed to transport gases into, and water out of fuel cell
stacks. These are new materials with an open pore structure, good
mechanical strength and high electrical conductivity. They are cost
effective for use in moderate temperature polymer electrolyte fuel cells.
We ship them as 100 meters long, 45 cm wide rolls.
SGL Carbon is a leading manufacturer
of carbon/graphite bipolar
SGL Carbon supplies carbon fiber based
gas diffusion media in continuous rolls
Carbon is the world’s largest producer of Carbon and Graphite products.
Annual sales is $1.26 billion. Headquartered in Germany, the company
employs 7000 people in 29 locations in ten countries. There are
approximately 2000 employees in North America. We invite you to visit our
