Products for the Battery Industry:

The aim of the world’s leading industrial battery manufacturers is the construction of a product with considerably increased performance and with a longer trouble-free life in the most extreme conditions ranging from arctic to tropical.

Research and Development teams are well aware one of the secrets of high performance traction batteries is tubular plates made with reliable materials and high quality gauntlets.

Throughout the past years, TERGAR have pioneered many fundamental changes in multitubular gauntlet technology and has supplied the Battery Industry with many million of woven gauntlets, which proved to meet the most stringent quality requirements.

TERGAR's team has been known as one of the leaders in the tubular gauntlets Industry for the quality product we manufacture and the service we provide. A modern production facility, designed and developed by TERGAR, manufactures gauntlets to the most exacting of customers’ quality and reliability specifications; we are now in a position to offer a complete range of gauntlets, depending on customer’s needs: engineered woven and non-woven gauntlets

HD-1416 woven gauntlets with engineered fabric structure offer higher resistance to chemical oxidation, better energy utilisation due to enhanced elastic compression of the active material, and longer trouble-free battery life. It is therefore specially recommended for Heavy Duty applications where the reduced internal resistance and the strong fabric structure results in improved performance with higher capacity.
HD-1416 engineered woven gauntlets main characteristics are:

  • Easy filling with paste or powder thanks to the peculiar hardness of the tube
  • Strong and elastic structure and no lack of stability even in heavy duty application and in high temperature
  • High porosity
  • Low electrical resistance even with a close fabric structure
  • High mechanical strength (over 40 N/cm in both directions)and controlled elasticity
  • Very high resistance to the oxidation

More exhaustive information about woven gauntlets is available in the article G. Terzaghi "Engineered woven gauntlets to improve the performance of tubular plates" Journal of Power Sources 73 (1998)78-85
