York, PA – April 7, 2017 – Glatfelter (NYSE: GLT) announced today its Composite Fibers business unit, in partnership with Dreamweaver International, Inc., won an award for the Dreamweaver Gold 20™ product as the “best finished product made from, or incorporating nonwovens”.
Dreamweaver and Glatfelter have developed Dreamweaver Gold 20™, a lithium ion battery separator made from a combination of nanofibers and microfibers whose thermally stable materials are designed to prevent self-ignition. “The team is very proud and excited for the future of this product as we work through the qualification process,” said Martin Rapp, Senior Vice President and Business Unit President, Composite Fibers.
The new cost-effective design delivers the normal electrical performance that is typically achieved with electrode materials in the battery, and provides enhanced product safety given its thermal stability.
