Battery-Grade Lithium for Manufacturing & Research

Targray is a leading supplier of battery grade lithium compounds, including both Lithium Carbonate and Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate for your Li-ion battery application needs. Lithium compounds play an important role in the Li-ion battery manufacturing process. They are typically used to make Cathode and Electrolyte precursor materials.

Battery Grade Lithium Compounds

Lithium is the lightest of all metals with a density approximately half that of water and it is always found as a compound with other minerals due to its high levels of chemical activity when by itself. Lithium and its compounds have several industrial applications, including heat-resistant glass, lubricants, ceramics, as an additive in cements and tile adhesives, high strength-to-weight alloys used in aircraft, lithium batteries and lithium-ion batteries.

Lithium’s electrochemical reactivity and other unique properties have resulted in many commercial lithium products. Lithium’s organometallic nature is ideal for use in battery applications since it has the highest electric output per unit weight of any battery material. Lithium-ion battery manufacturers are increasingly moving to lithium-based batteries from other battery materials for use in several lithium-ion battery applications such as electric vehicles, watches, portable computers and wireless devices.

Below is a chart comparing the Volumetric and Gravimetric Energy Densities of the most widely used battery grade materials. The results stipulate that Lithium is the preferred battery material for developing smaller, lighter batteries. Yet the industry is still in great need of cells that offer higher performance and higher charge/discharge rates, all at a much lower cost.
