Coated Electrodes

PV3 Technologies catalytic coatings are based on a range of nanostructured multi-layers of precious metals or metal oxides (MMO) with active components comprising platinum (Pt), iridium (Ir) and ruthenium (Ru).

Nanostructured systems of the type supplied by PV3 Technologies, offer increased performance over conventional materials by maximising catalytic phases and surface area interactions. By adding doping agents to the catalysts we are able to make them more selective and further improve performance. The developed coating technology allows for very thin layers to be deposited increasing cost effectiveness of the application overall.

Typical support materials (substrates) that have been coated to date include: titanium, nickel, stainless steel, indium tin oxide and Magneli phase titanium oxide. The coating technology is not shape or size limited. Coatings can be applied to foil, sheet, mesh, bar, tube, foam and sintered substrates.

Our mixed metal oxide (MMO) coatings have been developed to enhance corrosion resistance and improve conductivity not only for electrodes but also gas diffusion layers (GDL) and bipolar plates.
