Why is aluminum foil used in combination with other materials?

There are several main reasons for the composite use of aluminum foil and other materials:

  • Improved safety: Composite aluminum foil can achieve the “short circuit effect” and significantly improve the thermal stability of the battery. When the battery is struck and broken by external force, almost no metal burrs are produced, which avoids puncturing the battery separator, reduces the risk of battery short circuit, and greatly improves battery safety.
  • Improve energy density: While the thickness of composite aluminum foil remains unchanged, the amount of aluminum used is greatly reduced, making it lighter in weight. The amount of aluminum used inside the battery is reduced, and the energy density is increased under the same weight, thereby improving the battery’s endurance.
  • Improve barrier properties: Aluminum foil is easy to form pinholes during packaging and use, which reduces its barrier properties. Therefore, aluminum foil is often made into composite materials with films, polymers or other metal sheets.
  • Improve mechanical strength and sealing properties: Although aluminum foil is soft and foldable, it has low mechanical strength and poor sealing properties. By compounding aluminum foil with high-strength, heat-sealable plastic films, barrier properties, mechanical properties and heat-sealing properties can be obtained. Aluminum-plastic composite flexible packaging material with excellent performance.
  • Protecting the quality and safety of pharmaceuticals: Aluminum foil can be sealed through heat sealing or cold sealing technology to ensure the sealing of pharmaceutical packaging. This can help protect medicines from external contamination and oxidation.

Therefore, these advantages of composite aluminum foil are exactly the problems that traditional battery aluminum foil urgently needs to solve. With the development of new energy and the penetration of downstream application scenarios, composite aluminum foil is expected to replace traditional battery aluminum foil and even extend to more other fields, becoming the next blue ocean of new materials.

Batteries made from this material have the characteristics of high safety and high energy density.

  • (1) Improve thermal runaway and improve battery safety. The sandwich structure allows the composite aluminum foil to achieve the “short circuit effect” and significantly improve the thermal stability of the battery: when the battery is impacted and broken by external force, almost no metal burrs are produced, which avoids puncturing the battery separator, reduces the risk of battery short circuit, and greatly improves the battery life. Safety; in addition, even if the battery is internally short-circuited due to puncture or other reasons, the short-circuit cannot be sustained due to the fusing effect of the composite current collector, thus avoiding the risk of battery combustion and explosion.
  • (2) Light weight, which is helpful to increase energy density. While the thickness of composite aluminum foil remains unchanged, the amount of aluminum used is greatly reduced, which reduces its quality. The amount of aluminum used inside the battery is reduced, and the energy density is increased under the same weight, thereby improving the battery’s endurance.

These advantages of composite aluminum foil are exactly the problems that traditional battery aluminum foil urgently needs to solve. With the development of new energy and the penetration of downstream application scenarios, composite aluminum foil is expected to replace traditional battery aluminum foil and even extend to more other fields, becoming the next blue ocean of new materials.
