Our composite cathode inks are excellent for fabricating your own SOFC with a composite cathode. The composite cathode inks have demonstrated better adhesion to the dense electrolyte surface which can enhance your overall cell performance. This ink is fabricated using our quality ink manufacturing processes and provides and a screen printable ink that is excellent for incorporating into your own cell manufacturing process.
Typical Use Guidelines
This is a great ink for making electrical connections for electrochemical testing of fuel cells, ceramic substrates, electrochemical materials, and metals.
Stirring the ink before use is highly recommended. For best results, the ink should be stirred with a spatula or a sonic wand to achieve an even consistency prior to use.
This ink is typically fired at 1100 or 1150°C for 1 hour to ensure adhesion prior to testing at the desired test temperature.
This ink can be used for screen printing for generating electrical connections for wire attachments.
