Abstract:

The reactivity of Ag2O with separator materials was measured with an Ag 110 tracer. The reactivity and permeability of silver oxides with separators was also measured by a cycling test at 120 F. Several separator materials were found which have a lower reactivity than cellophane, but no higher permeability. Cycling data are presented for several groups of cells undergoing evaluation. Failure analysis and performance data are presented for 16, 12 AH sealed cells. Shape maintenance of the negative electrode and cycle life was increased by the use of 26.5 KOH with a PVA separator. Performance was lowered when C19 300 was used with 31 KOH. Author
