properties of graphite-stainless steel composite in bipolar plates

(PDF) High

Conventionally, bipolar plates are made from pure graphite sintered in the form of thick plates that are subsequently machined to form flow channels for hydrogen, methanol, water, etc. In the attempts to reduce the cost as well as the weight of the fuel cell, efforts have been made in recent years to use conducting polymer composites for the fabrication of bipolar plates [5,6].

Fabrication of micro

A new method of manufacturing micro-flow channels on graphite composite bipolar plate (GCBPP) microplaning using specially designed multi-tooth tool is proposed. In this method, several or even dozens of parallel micro-flow channels ranging from 100 m to 500 m in width can be produced simultaneously. But, edge chippings easily occur on the rib surface of GCBPP during microplaning

Increase in the corrosion resistance of stainless steel

Crnitride layer is formed on the surface of Cr-electroplated stainless steel to use metallic bipolar plates of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). The dense and continuous Crnitride layer is confirmed by scanning electron microscope (SEM) results. The corrosion resistance results in aggressive environments of PEMFC reveal that the corrosion current density of 0.5 A cm2 and

A Review of Metallic Bipolar Plates for Proton Exchange

Composite films have been developed and applied to stainless steel bipolar plates to improve their corrosion resistance and interfacial contact resistance. Fu et al. [95] electrodeposited an Ag-polytetrafluoroethylene composite layer on 316L SS bipolar plates and reported that the plates exhibited lower interfacial contact resistance, higher corrosion resistance, and better hydrophobic
