Abstract:

The basic D cell made on this contract has the same construction as that developed on previous contracts except for an improved carbon cup which utilizes a thermosetting resin binder instead of the coal tar pitch formerly used. Eleven experimental lots have been made and put on test to evaluate various materials for the cell jacket, the anode sealing washer and the insulating and reinforcing tape. At this time, no definite differences in performance have been observed between cells using different materials of construction. Capacity maintenance at 130F has been over 90 percent at up to three months. Uniformity has been good. The feasibility of making a C cell has been demonstrated and work is under way on equipment to make this size cell using the same design and materials of construction as are used in the D cell.
