Targray Unveils New Cathode Materials

Targray Technology International announces that it has entered into a mutual agreement with one of the top three cathode materials suppliers, L&F Material Co. Ltd., for the distribution of its high quality cathode materials in Europe and North America. L&F Material is the best-in-class supplier of three cathode active materials: Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NCM); Spinel-based lithium-ion: LiMn2O4 (LMO); and Cobalt-based lithium-ion: LiCoO2 (LCO). It is currently the largest supplier of NMC to two of the three top cell makers in the world and ranks amongst the top three suppliers in the world based on combined sales volume of NMC and LCO.

"L&F is one of only two companies that has been granted a 3M patent license to bring their product into the U.S., which speaks volumes about their battery cathode NMC technology," said Pradip Sheth, Director of the Battery Division at Targray. "They’ve also sold over 20,000 metric tons in the past five years and have been consistently rated number one by some of the top cell makers in the world.
