PEM-type fuel cell technology is explored on global scale and is meanwhile moving to pilot production for automotive applications. One of the main challenges is to provide a highly conductive anti-corrosion coating on the stainless steel bipolar plates, at very high output and very low costs. Based on a 30-year experience in carbon-based PVD coatings for the automotive industry, IHI Hauzer has successfully demonstrated excellent coating performance and attractive production solutions that will support the ramping of fuel cell production in the next years.
