Mixed Ba/Pb complex
Fine, dry off white – light tan powder.
Battery paste “seed” nucleant
For negative active material (NAM)
.5 to 3 percent of paste mix by weight
Creates neculeation centers over which
crystals of PbSO4 grow.
Improves battery plate uniformity
Extends battery cycle life
Reduces battery manufacturing costs
Facilitates the formation of a porous layer
of small PbSO4 crystals on the lead surface
while preventing the formation of a continuous
PbSO4 passivating film.
% Pb >60.0
% Ba <15.0
