  • Publication number: 20220140308
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for manufacturing a positive electrode plate, wherein even when a positive electrode mix layer is densely compressed, the positive electrode plate is prevented from being so greatly bent that wrinkles created in non-coated regions during transport, winding, or lamination develop into deep winkles or cracks, thus avoiding the inability to transport or wind the positive electrode plate. This manufacturing method can provide a positive electrode plate having a positive electrode mix layer formed on the surface thereof, wherein the filling density of the positive electrode mix layer is at least 3.4 g/cm3, and the warpage amount h of the positive electrode plate in the width direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction satisfies 0.0?h?3.0 mm per 1 m in the longitudinal direction.
