  • Super Caps

    Super Caps

    Known in the industry as ‘super caps’, supercapacitors are high-performance capacitors that work in a similar way to these batteries and have a particularly high capacity. Freudenberg Performance Materials has developed special ‘separator nonwovens’ especially for this application. Super caps can store and discharge energy very quickly, when necessary. They are used, for example, during the lifting and lowering of containers when loading and unloading ships.
