Short cut fibers are used in lead acid batteries. The fibers are mixed with the pasting applied to the lead plate. The fibers provide a reinforcement inside the pasting, prevent cracking of the pasting, allow the pasting to better coat the lead plate, and improve long term durability and wear of the battery. The fibers are resistant to chemical solvents, bases and acids and tested for impurities that could interfere with the performance of the battery.
At Claremont Flock, our short cut fibers are cut to specification. They provide maximum ease of dispersion and uniformity. These fibers are quality checked to rigid specifications to eliminate fusions and clumping. We offer polyester, polypropylene, acrylic, mod acrylic and other specialty fibers.
