6K Energy to implement Forge Nano ALD equipment for commercial production of NMC 811 materials

Forge Nano, Inc., a provider of precision nano-coating technology, and 6K Energy, a developer of critical materials for lithium-ion batteries, signed an agreement to implement commercial-scale production of 6K Energy’s US-made battery materials with Forge Nano’s proprietary Atomic Armor surface technology platform (commercial-scale Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)).

This collaboration will support a supply chain for next-generation, domestically sourced batteries.

Atomic Armor is the application of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) coatings done with the speed, precision and know-how that will unlock a product’s performance and scale at a lower cost than incumbent technology. This technology improves existing battery materials, resulting in higher capacity and safety, while making batteries charge faster and last longer, all at a lower cost.

The partners say that the combination of Forge Nano’s Atomic Armor with 6K’s UniMelt materials production process will bring the highest performance and lowest cost materials to the market.

Forge Nano’s commercial-scale ALD technology Atomic Armor is being implemented around the world and in Li-ion batteries [at giga-scale] it is being used for improving product performance and reducing process costs for battery materials.

6K developed UniMelt, a proprietary advanced microwave plasma production system, to transform engineered materials into products that advance industries across additive manufacturing, renewable energy, aerospace, consumer electronics, and more. 6K represents 6000 degrees, both the temperature of the operation of UniMelt, the world’s only microwave production scale plasma system and the temperature of the sun’s surface.

The 6K Energy division is focused on the production of low-cost, sustainable, and domestically produced battery material accelerating the pace of battery production and adoption of electric vehicles. The 6K Additive division specializes in sustainably sourced, AM metal powders production and reclamation, using a proprietary milling and cleaning process that ensures contamination-free, high-quality powders.
