Advancing Material Science for Hydrogen Fuel Storage

As automakers continue to refine cutting-edge hydrogen vehicle technology, designing safe and durable hydrogen fuel tanks is essential. Akulon® Fuel Lock technology offers a durable and easy-to-process alternative to steel, aluminum or HDPE for high-pressure hydrogen tanks. It offers a permeation barrier 5x stronger than HDPE and is rigorously tested for consistent fast-filling performance.
