ENrG Inc to produce a 100-300 meter long format of its Thin E-Strate®.

ENrG Inc Business Development Manager Kathy Olenick is now putting together a short list of companies that will sample ENrG's Thin E-Strate® in 10 meter long (width to be determined) in late 2015.  Key candidates will have the ability to not only handle R2R but be able to put various active coatings onto the ceramic substrate and then assemble it into system or test applications.

As part of this strategic direction for the company, ENrG will also couple in development work to singulate the ceramic roll through diamond dicing and laser cutting.  ENrG expects to supply the ceramic substrate in 20 micron thick format at widths of 2 - 20 cm.

Expected markets are energy storage for wearables, medical, solar PV, amongst others.  ENrG expects the project to be supported through various grants, one of which is already under contract.

Advantages of Using Thin E-Strate®

Thin E-Strate® for active or passive device fabrication. More robust than silicon.

As a ceramic, 3YSZ is inert, of high purity, tolerates processing temperatures to 1200°C, and with its low thermal mass can tolerate high thermal shock during deposition or coating processes.

Being ultra thin to 20 microns thick, it presents a very low thermal resistance path for heat removal and a super thin profile for component coating.  Multi-layers of active layer coated Thin E-Strate® can easily be stacked into low profile components.
