Changing the Rules

Our patented plasma-based synthetic route fundamentally disrupts materials design and production for Li-ion batteries.

  • Direct control of physical & chemical primary particle characteristics
  • Lower cost structure & improved environmental sustainability
  • Faster scale-up & reduced development cycle time
  • Novel coating capability

6K is developing materials products for the current and next generation of battery technologies: 

  • Automotive applications including EV, start-stop, and xEV
  • Mobile & storage
  • Portable power/cordless
NMC-622

Unparalleled Control

The UniMelt® platform provides unprecedented ability to directly AND independently engineer for both morphology and chemistry without the constraints of traditional synthesis methods such as precipitation, solid-state synthesis, sol-gel, etc.

  • Engineered morphologies, including targeted d50 in both the nano and micron ranges, tight PSD and bimodal PSD for maximum energy density, the tailored surface area for power capability, and engineered porosity
  • Engineered chemistries for cathode and anode, including all NMC from 111 to 811 and beyond, NCA, LMO, high voltage spinel, LTO, silicone anodes, and other unique chemistries
  • Extensibility to solid electrolytes, surface coatings for interfacial modification and passivation, and future applications in thin-film batteries
