  • Publication number: 20200106091
    Abstract: The weight and size of a lead-acid battery is reduced and the energy density per mass by forming base members of components of the lead-acid battery is improved by using aluminum or aluminum alloy and forming multiple plating layers on a surface of each base member. In order to prevent formation of pinholes in the multiple plating layers, the surface of the base member 22 is subjected to flattening processing, a solder plating layer with a film thickness of 10 ?m or more is formed, or many layers of group 4 metals with similar chemical properties are laminated. Moreover, in a positive electrode plate and a negative electrode plate, an active material layer 24 is formed on the outermost lead plating layer by an electrolytic formation treatment to improve the charging and discharging efficiencies of the lead-acid battery and to greatly reduce fall-off the active material layer 24.
