Storage is the key to safety, flexibility and mobility in the use of energy. Since electricity is a fleeting power, it must be used as it is being generated – or converted immediately into another form of i.e. electrochemical or electrostatic energy to save it for later use.
SCHOTT supplies the crucial components for durable and high performance energy storage devices. These include our novel hermetic GTAS™ glass-to-aluminium sealed covers and lid systems prolong the lifetime of capacitors and lithium-ion batteries. We also manufacture HF-Scavenging glass powder which helps prevent the formation of hydrofluoric acid in systems with fluid or liquid electrolytes such as lithium-ion batteries and capacitors.
