Abstract:

This report describes research on the mercuric-oxide-cadmium galvanic cellsystem for possible use in a primary transceiver battery. The experimentalprogram included evaluation of binders, electron carriers, substrates, andstarting materials for pasted and pressed mercuric oxide and cadmium electrodes,methods of fabricating electrodes, evaluation of separator and electrolytematerials, evaluation of adhesive and sealant materials, and evaluation ofcase materials. The electrode is made by pressing a mix of cadmium oxide,nickel powder, and polyvinyl alcohol binder on a nickel screen to 60theoretical density. Author, modified-PL
