Abstract
It has been found that separator materials commonly used in zinc/air batteries do not wet readily when placed in contact with alkaline electrolyte at -40C. They are, therefore, unsuitable for use in a reserve-primary zinc/air battery which must be capable of rapid activation and operation at any temperature in the range -40C to 50C. A glas-Vinyon separator which meets the requirements of this type of battery has been developed.
