Cutting Edge Fibre Technology, Goonvean Fibres is the world largest TS 16949 manufacturer of Fibre for Lead Acid Batteries

Lead Acid - AGM

Precision short cut fibers for Batteries

Polymeric fibres are used within Lead Acid Battery Plates (including EFB, AGM, Wet, Gel) for decades as a physical reinforcement of the pasted plate. This is an important component which makes a significant impact on the performance; by reinforcing the pasted plates, improving strength and rigidity to help combat severe road conditions and prevent plate failure via dislocation of the active material from the grid. The impact on the physical performance of the plates has been tested via vibration of the plates to simulate road conditions and then dropped from a height (to simulate potential impact; e.g. pot hole, collision, etc.) and the level of paste that is dislocated is measured.

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is a synthetic resin prepared by the polymerisation of acrylonitrile. A member of the important family of acrylic resins, it is a hard, rigid thermoplastic material that is resistant to most solvents and chemicals, slow to burn, and of low permeability to gases. PAN fibre is therefore used in many different applications where these attributes are specified.

Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, textiles (e.g. ropes and carpets) and automotive components. It's resistance to many chemical solvents, bases and acids makes it an ideal reinforcement material in Lead Acid and Lithium Ion batteries

Precision cut Polyester fibre is a very strong and stable manmade fibre that is widely used in many industries. Polyester is resistant to stretching and shrinking and perhaps more importantly for industrial applications it is resistant to abrasion and acid degradation. Polyester has a relatively high specific gravity, leading to it dispersing well in water and a relatively high melting point making it a good all round choice for a variety of applications. The short cut 3.3 decitex grade is widely used in the manufacture of lead oxide paste with cut lengths 1.6mm and 3mm being most common.

Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, textiles and automotive components. It is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids making it an ideal material for use in Lead Acid Batteries and concrete.

Goonvean Fibres recommends modacrylic fibre for applications where a combination of softness, strength, resilience, and dimension stabilty are demanded. Modacrylic fibres can be easily dyed, show good press and shape retention, and are quick to dry. They have outstanding resistance to chemicals and solvents.
