Black Diamond Structures, a developer and manufacturer of innovative nano-material products and solutions for the lead acid and Li-ion battery market, has opened its new advanced battery testing laboratory.

The facility is one of the most advanced of its kind in the world and will provide performance data on the effects of its proprietary technology, Molecular Rebar, when added to a battery’s active material. It houses 129 12V testing channels and another 77 channels for testing below 12V.

Black Diamonds CEO Dr John Hacskaylo explained, “We are making great strides in battery development by partnering with some of the largest manufacturers around the world. Using our highly advanced testing capabilities, together with the manufacturers we are building a vast base of scientific knowledge of battery performance when Molecular Rebar is introduced into the active material.”

Dr Jeremy Meyers, director of R&D for lead acid batteries, added, “We’ve observed and documented the improvements brought to battery performance with Molecular Rebar in tens of thousands of batteries built on full-scale production lines around the world. To meet rapidly growing global customer demands, we have made significant investments in testing, automation, and data analysis to help our customers optimize our technology for their batteries.”
