Abstract:

The manufacture of the pasted silver electrodes and of the pressed cadmium electrodes is described. Both electrodes have pure silver substrates of one-piece construction. The separator system used in the sealed cells is delineated. Cell construction and assembly is given in detail, with accompanying drawings. The activation and formation procedures for cells are described. The report gives the capacities obtained from engineering evaluation tests for room and high temperature storage, cold temperature, and early data on cycle life. The results of the tests and conclusions to be drawn from them are discussed. Author
