ORION AEM Polymers for Renewable Energy Applications: Hydrogen Electrolyzers, Fuel Cells, Electric Vehicles

ORION CMX : ION EXCHANGE CAPACITY (IEC) = 2.2 MEQUIV/G (IN OH– FORM)
ORION CMX (-OH) HAS NEARLY 3X THE ION EXCHANGE CAPACITY (IEC) OF NAFION (H+) !
  • Orion CMX delivers high temperature stability, high chemical stability, and robust mechanical features.
  • Orion CMX is used for AEM and can also be used for HT-PEM and LT-PEM.
  • Orion CMX is the preferred membrane of Nel Hydrogen.
  • It is the ONLY hydroxide exchange membrane to show virtually no degradation at 80°C for 1000 hours in NREL comparative testing of anion exchange samples (AEM) obtained globally.
  • ORION has a passion for developing a sustainable, clean energy future.
  • We’re proud of the strides we’ve made in durable AEM for renewable energy from our early stage TM1, to our more durable AMX, to our current improved CMX membranes
  • ORION has more commercial roll to roll and polymer synthesis scaling, more ionomer inventions, and more R2R price reductions in its pipeline for 2022 – 2023..
  • Incorporate ORION ground-breaking CMX AEM into your projects to help accomplish the clean energy future you want.
