Rotary web finishing offers multiple advantages
CCM (Catalyst Coated Membrane), a component of MEAs (Membrane Electrode Assemblies), is quite a difficult and sensitive material to process, mainly when it comes to room temperature and humidity variations. However, rotary die-cutting technology has proven its efficiency during converting and processing, when integrated in fuel cell assembly lines.
Other materials used are GDM (Gas Diffusion Layer) and PEM (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane).
