Metallic Bipolar Plates for PEM Electrolyzers
An investigation of the typical corrosion parameters used to test polymer electrolyte fuel cell bipolar plate coatings, with titanium nitride coated stainless steel as a case study
Stainless steel bipolar plates (BPP) for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) have good manufacturability, durability and low costs, but inadequate corrosion resistance and elevated interfacial contact resistance (ICR) in the fuel cell environment. Thin film coatings of titanium nitride ...
Bipolar plates for PEM systems
Carbon-polymer composite coatings for PEM fuel cell bipolar plates
A carbon-polymer composite coating on stainless steel 316L substrates was investigated for the use as bipolar plate material for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. The coating consisted of 45 vol% graphite, 5 vol% carbon black and 50 vol% epoxy binder. The coating was applied by a spraying tec...
A Microblock Ionomer in Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolysis for the Production of High Purity Hydrogen
Proton exchange membranes (PEM’s) are currently under investigation for membrane water electrolysis (PEMWE) to deliver efficient production of the high purity hydrogen needed to supply emerging clean-energy technologies such as hydrogen fuel cells. The microblock aromatic ionomer described in this w...
In Situ and Ex situ Contact Resistance Measurements of Stainless Steel Bipolar Plates for PEM Fuel Cells
Passivation of stainless steel caused by the formation of an oxide layer on the surface is one of the main concerns when it comes to using stainless steel as bipolar plate material. Interfacial Contact Resistance (ICR) between the bipolar plate and the gas diffusion layer was measured both in situ a...

The effect of pH and halides on the corrosion process of stainless steel bipolar plates for proton exchange membrane fuel cells
Stainless steel is attractive as material for bipolar plates in proton exchange membrane fuel cells, due to its high electrical conductivity, high mechanical strength and relatively low material and processing cost. Potentiostatic and potentiodynamic tests were performed in H2SO4 solutions on AISI 3...
