Abstract:

It has been found that separator materials commonly used in zincair batteries do not wet readily when placed in contact with alkaline electrolyte at -40 C. They are, therefore, unsuitable for use in a reserve-primary zincair battery which must be capable of rapid activation and operation at any temperature in the range -40 C to 50 C. A glass-Vinyon separator which meets the requirements of this type of battery has been developed. Author
