Abstract : The development of the dry process method, a new technique for fabricating divalent silver oxide (AgO) electrodes for use in zinc-silver oxide batteries, was accomplished at USAECOM and reported in AD-622 698. This report indicated that these electrodes were superior to the conventional electroformed ones in many respects such as cost, voltage regulation and discharge efficiency. Evidence was lacking, however, as to comparable mechanical strength, a strong point of the electroformed electrode and an important factor in reliability, particularly under missile environments. This report presents evidence of high mechanical strength of the dry process electrodes, sufficient for missile usage. It also presents data on an improvement in the dry process, the elimination of the sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) binder, which could simplify production methods and thereby further reduce costs.
