The demand for conductive fuel cell stack components contributed to the research and development of composite materials and technologies. Significant activities were directed to the study of low-cost bipolar plates made in thermosets and thermoplastics manufactured by compression and injection molding. For the production of conductive thermoplastics carbon-polymers composites are used methods including thermokineting, twin screw extruder, or Banbury type mixing. In this paper are presented the results of research of a technology combining the mixing of the pellets of a composite carbon black in a polymer matrix with expanded graphite and conveying the compound to the injection molding unit and then, the melt injection molded into a micro-channel bipolar plate for a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC).
