Hyundai Motor Company has begun co-development of ceramic coatings for hydrogen fuel-cell separator plates with Swedish firm Impact Coatings, TheElec has learned.

The move was being done to cut the cost of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, such as the Hyundai Motor’s Nexo.

Using ceramic coatings could cut the cost of the separator plate component and improve its durability.

Impact Coatings has the technology to turn ceramic into a gaseous form to ensure a thin coating on surfaces.

Hyundai Motors had acquired a 10% stake in the Swedish firm back in 2019.

The South Korean automobile giant is aiming to make the price of hydrogen fuel-cell cars level with that of electric vehicles.

The Swedish headquarters of Impact Coatings had sent staff to its South Korean subsidiary for the development of the separator plate.

Separator plates accounts for up to 25% of the cost of manufacturing a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle.
