Research & Development


ENTEK’s Separator Technology Center leverages extrusion technology from our sister company, ENTEK  Extruders, to provide next generation separator solutions for energy storage applications.

Promotes Breakthrough Technology

The facility supports product development and innovation. It allows small-scale production of the newest  designs for verification and validation prior to full-scale production.

Collaboration and Partnerships

Through our collaborative relationship with one of our primary customers, ENTEK was a recipient of a  multi-million dollar grant from the United States Department of Energy under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This award was used to build domestic manufacturing capacity for advanced separators for hybrid and electric vehicles.


Our dedicated R&D team, with a full spectrum of scientific backgrounds, enables ‘outside-the-box’ thinking to produce novel approaches to design.

Customer Based Design

Listening to our customers’ needs, we develop products that allow them to continue to be market leaders in their respective fields.
