In refining and modifying the production process the team overcame many of historic barriers associated with improving the mechanical strength of PVOH to create HydroPol, a "superpolymer
" that has the potential for use across a much wider range of commercial applications.
The Maya 300 is powered by Electrovaya's lithium-ion SuperPolymer

Pennwalt designs the high-tech superpolymer
into components that industrial buyers use for making singing balloons, paper-thin microphones and television screens, particle sensors on satellites, blood flow sensors, pressure sensors in underground nuclear test sites -- even a so-called "smart" skin to damp vibrations on the proposed space station and perhaps one day for use in platforms that convert the mechanical energy in ocean waves into electrical power.
In January 2011, Ontario, Canada-based Electrovaya announced it was supplying an innovative grid-scale 1.5MWh Lithium Ion SuperPolymer
battery energy storage system for a major U.S.
The Scribbler SC 3100 from Electrovaya features an up to 9-hour runtime thanks, in part, to the company's patented SuperPolymer
li-Ion 75Wh battery.
