동일 전극 로딩 조건(${\sim}15mg\;cm^{-2}$)에서 면적당 용량($mAh\;cm^{-2}$)을 극대화하기 위해, 고분자 바인더의 함량을 4, 2, 1 wt%로 줄인 $LiNi_{0.5}Co_{0.2}Mn_{0.3}O_2$ 전극을 제조하였다. 바인더 함량이 1 wt%로 낮춘 경우, 압연 후 펀칭 과정에서 전극 코팅층이 부분적으로 박리되는 문제가 발생하여 추가 분석은 진행되지 않았다. 전극 내 바인더 함량을 4 wt%에서 2 wt%로 줄이면, 계면 접착력은 0.4846에서 $0.2627kN\;m^{-1}$로 약 46% 감소하고, 전극 코팅층의 강도도 3.847에서 2.013 MPa로 약 48%가 떨어졌다. 그러나, 두 전극을 리튬 전극과 반쪽 전지로 구성하여 전기화학적 특성을 살펴보면, 초기 방전 용량과 충방전 효율은 유사하였다. 하지만, 단기 수명 평가에서 2 wt% 바인더 전극은 수명 특성이 떨어질 뿐만 아니라, 전지를 분해하는 과정에서 전극 코팅층이 집전체에서 박리되는 현상이 관찰되었다. 반면, 4 wt% 바인더 전극은 높은 전극 로딩조건에서도 전극 코팅층과 집전체 계면이 잘 유지되고 있음이 확인되었다.
