Polyester Nonwoven, Fiberglass Mat and Glass Sliver for Deep Cycle Batteries
In the numerous applications and different designs of energy storage devices the lead-acid battery plays an important role. Traditional areas of lead-acid battery usage cover stationary applications such as back up batteries/UPS and traction battery / motive power applications. In the light of renewable energy production, off-grid energy storage is becoming of increasing importance.
What is a polyester nonwoven, a fiberglass mat or a glass sliver?
Polyester nonwoven consists of randomly orientated filaments, thermally or chemically bonded. Fiberglass mat is made of fiberglass with defined diameter and length. The fibers are oriented in a random pattern and bonded with an acid resistant binder. Glass sliver is a continuous strand of loose untwisted C-glass fibers with a defined diameter and random length. The special requirements regarding acid resistance, electrical conductivity, mechanical durability, and processability can be met by using these battery-compatible materials.
