The adhesion strength of lithium-ion battery (LIB) electrodes consisting of active material, a nanosized electric conductor, and a polymeric binder is measured with a new analysis tool, called the Surface and Interfacial Cutting Analysis System (SAICAS). Compared to the conventional peel test with the same electrode, SAICAS gives higher adhesion strength owing to its elaborate cutting-based measurement system. In addition, the effects on the adhesion property of the polymeric binder type and content, electrode density, and measuring point are also investigated to determine whether SAICAS provides reliable results. The findings confirm SAICAS as an effective and promising tool to measure and analyze the adhesion properties of LIB electrodes.
