Membrane Electrode Assembly for Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell, Method of Producing the Same and Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell

By September 11, 2018

An object of the present invention is to provide a membrane-electrode-frame assembly which suppresses reductions in power generation properties due to gas cross leakage of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell, which improves durability of a polymer electrolyte membrane and which exhibits superior productivity. In the membrane-electrode-frame assembly, an unwoven fabric which has two domains each having different pore sizes and which is formed with fibers of PVDF is disposed as a reinforcing membrane in a polymer electrolyte membrane for a polymer electrolyte fuel cell, and a domain having a smaller pore size and protruding from the polymer electrolyte membrane and a frame are formed into an integrated structure by welding, thereby improving a gas sealing capability.
