To achieve this, FPM’s experts develop technical nonwovens with high thermal and electronic conductivity, optimum damage protection for the membrane and very good processability. A conductive carbon structure is coated with specially developed substances to handle all of the transport tasks. The carbon fiber structure is easy to compress in the production process thanks to its flexible fiber structure.
Freudenberg is one of the few suppliers on the market to offer large-scale industrial production worldwide. The solutions are already being installed in forklifts and container vehicles. They are also used in buses, trucks and cars. Freudenberg is working on this with customers from every continent.
A new market with great potential is GDL production for electrolyzers, which has already started at FPM. Electrolyzers break water down into its components hydrogen and oxygen. This makes it possible to store green electricity as hydrogen, for example. Demand for electrolyzers for green hydrogen production will rise in the coming years and Freudenberg is working together with its customers to develop suitable solutions for this.
