Essen/Germany – Evonik is selling the Taettooz materials technology for printable rechargeable batteries to the Innovation Lab. The Innovation Lab specializes in the development of printed and organic electronics and offers individual overall solutions from the first concept draft to industrial production. Creavis, as the strategic innovation unit and business incubator of Evonik, has developed the Taettooz technology.

Redox polymers form the basis of the printable rechargeable batteries. The new materials can be processed into very thin, flexible battery cells using common printing processes. In the process, they allow developers a high degree of design freedom. In addition, battery cells manufactured with Taettooz technology do not contain liquid electrolytes and therefore cannot leak.
