What You Will Learn In The Webinar

Material selection for Type IV hydrogen tanks is crucial due to hydrogen's unique properties, including its flammability and potential for embrittlement in materials. The right materials are essential to ensure safety, durability, and weight reduction, especially in applications like fuel cell vehicles. Additionally, compliance with regulations, cost considerations, and environmental impact are key factors in material selection.  

Join us for a webinar about the latest advancements in material selection for Type IV hydrogen tanks where experts from Arkema, a renowned leader in long-chain polyamides and materials for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles, will share their knowledge and experience in this field. 

In this webinar, you can expect to… 

  • Gain a detailed understanding of liner manufacturing techniques, with a specific focus on the differences between rotomolding and extrusion blow molding for Type IV tanks. 

  • Understand the mechanical properties of materials and their implications in the context of hydrogen tanks. 

  • Learn about critical aspects such as blistering, collapse, and carbon footprint, and how they affect material selection. 

  • Discover potential changes in specifications and their associated consequences. 

  • Get insights into the latest developments in Type V tanks and their significance in the hydrogen transportation industry.
