ZMG®232L for SOFC Fuel Cell Separator

Product Announcement from Hitachi Metals America, LLC

ZMG®232L for SOFC Fuel Cell Separator-Image

Hitachi Metals has developed a metallic material, ZMG®232L, for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) separator applications. SOFC is a promising fuel cell with high efficiency and low environmental impact.

Interconnects (including current collectors) have a role to connect cells electrically as well as separate air and fuel gas in case of use as separators. The properties required for materials for interconnects are good oxidation resistance, good electrical conductivity, and a coefficient of thermal expansion close to that of electrode materials at operating temperatures (700-1,000°C).

We can provide alloys to meet these requirements developed by our alloy design technologies without peers in the specialty steel market.
