Abstract : Battery units were made that survive two weeks storage at 160F. Battery units stored one month at 160F suffered a complete degradation of the cell wrap necessitating a review of the construction with respect to materials and assembly to protect the cell wrap and anode moisture barrier contact. The most likely material changes that will produce early results are use of an experimental proprietary plastic film as cell wrap or the replacement of the rolled tin plated steel vapor barrier with a copper foil vapor barrier. The addition of a polyester film separator between the moisture barrier and cell wrap on the anode side is also to be considered even though the complexity of the cell is greatly increased. (Author)
