The patent is for "systems and methods for dry powder coating layers of an electrochemical cell."
The award is a major step forward in the company's mission to provide affordable and effective energy storage solutions, including the domestic manufacturing of all solid-state battery cells.
This new patent adds to the company's extensive portfolio focused on dry powder coating of lithium ion battery electrodes.
The patented powder coating system is part of the lithium battery manufacturing process, replacing methods that have expensive heavy machinery by forming a particle layer on a substrate through a dry powder coating spray process.
The process is also integral to scalable production of a non-flammable solution for lithium-ion battery applications.
"We have been developing dry powder coating processes for lithium-ion battery production for over a decade, and this newly patented process is a key piece of the foundation for manufacturing our all solid-state batteries here in the U.S." said CEO Denis Phares.
Price Action: DFLI shares are trading higher by 1.27% at $24.78 in premarket on the last check Wednesday.
