Expanded Graphite Epoxy Composites Bipolar Plates for PEM Fuel Cells
MetadataShow full item record
Light weight, flexible and thin single layer epoxy impregnated expanded graphite bipolar plates were manufactured and evaluated as a PEM fuel cell bipolar plate material. Mechanical strength values up to 17.41 MPa, in-plane electrical conductivity values up to 136.6 S/cm, through-plane electrical resistance of 0.027 Ohm-cm and flexibility (deflection at mid-span) values up to % 4.38 were obtained with epoxy impregnation in expanded graphite foams. The low thickness (similar to 0.5 mm) and density (similar to 1.2 g/cm(3)) values of the prepared composite plates put them one step ahead for mobile applications which require high mass and volumetric power density (W/kg, W/L). On the other hand, corrosion current and contact angle values of these composite plates couldn't achieve desired values.
