The sealant is designed to prevent the electrolyte from creeping inside the metal case and forming a gap between the two. It also improves the resistance of the battery to liquid leakage. The sealant can be applied by a variety of methods.
Typically, the best sealant is a rubber-made material that is able to withstand rapid changes in temperature. Moreover, it is possible to apply the sealant with an organic solvent. However, a variety of issues may arise when applying a sealant with such a solvent. For example, the organic solvent may evaporate when the battery is stored at low temperatures. In addition, the rubber-made sealant may deteriorate when the battery is inserted into a cold environment.
First, the sealant is provided between the metal case and the resin-made sealing body. Second, the sealant is formulated to be compatible with the chemical properties of the electrolyte. Finally, the sealing material is able to provide a tight seal between the metal case and the sealing body. The use of a grease sealant, in contrast, is shown to increase the productivity of the alkaline dry battery.
The alkaline dry battery includes a positive electrode comprised of manganese dioxide and nickel oxyhydroxide. The latter has been proposed as a positive electrode for an alkaline dry battery, but the oxidizing and potential properties of the nickel oxyhydroxide may cause the sealant to deteriorate. The grease used to apply the sealant can be diluted with an organic solvent to reduce the risk of degradation of the sealant.
An anode containing a combination of zinc powder and a gel anode. The current collector is inserted into the central part of the gel negative electrode. The device provides constant power throughout the life of the battery. The minimum diameter of the negative electrode is about 2 mm.
The alkaline dry battery with a sealant that is easy to apply and possesses a high level of liquid-leakage resistance. This is because the sealant prevents the electrolyte from creeping into the metal case and sealing body. It also allows for the production of an alkaline dry battery with a higher capacity.
