Advanced Primary Battery Electrode Design: Adopting Expanded Metal Foils
Though the attention given to secondary batteries is greater than ever, 90% of the $50 billion battery market is still comprised of primary batteries. It’s no surprise that these non-rechargeable batteries are so prominent – primary batteries play a key role in military, medical and automotive applications.

Those noteworthy industries are just the tip of the iceberg. High, specific energy, long storage times and instant readiness give primary batteries a unique advantage over other power sources. Even after long storage, primary batteries can be used instantly in remote locations where charging is impossible. From night vision goggles and radios to pacemakers and defibrillators, primary battery applications require a design and materials that maximize its reliability and lifespan.

Advanced engineers looking to improve the performance of their primary batteries are increasingly exploring alternative manufacturing methods that produce thinner and lighter anode and cathode electrodes. Many of those engineers are turning to precision expanded metal foils. ....more
