Edge Protection

Avoca are specialists in providing this particular method of gauntlet protection against short circuits.

The protection is necessary and recommended when battery manufactures choose to use veneer type separators rather than the conventional sleeves.

Protection of the outer positive plate tubes is made by applying a thin layer of adhesive type material which acts as an insulation.

The insulated surfaces then act as a barrier against lead particles which are freely floating within the cells electolyte.
