Metals And Additives Corporation, Inc.
(MAC) is a private holding company for three separate corporations – OMNI Oxide Corp., Addenda Corporation and PAG Holdings, Inc. The headquarters for MAC is in Indianapolis, Indiana USA. All MAC locations are ISO 9001:2000 Certified.
Addenda Corporation, incorporated in 1999, began production of plastic additives in early 2000 at a new production facility in Brazil, Indiana. President Gary Mitchener and co-founder, Mark McCaughey combined over 50 years of very successful chemical processing experience into building the most modern and cost-efficient facility in North America.
Crystal science has always been the core research area of Addenda. Based on the problems of traditional high-temperature curing, such as difficulty in formation, low capacity and poor consistency, Addenda introduced 4BS crystal seeds in 1999 to effectively control the growth of 4BS crystals. Currently, it is not only widely used in power batteries and energy storage batteries. On the battery, it has also been recognized by more and more users.
Crystal seed SEEDING
addiBatt Tetra L2 is a high-purity, high-activity 4BS seed with good dispersibility. As a crystal nucleus in lead paste, it can effectively control the size of 4BS crystal in lead paste by controlling the addition ratio of seeds. The problem of low capacity, difficulty in formation, and poor consistency due to high temperature curing.
Lignin is a derivative of the paper industry. The papermaking process is mainly divided into two types: the sulfite method (also known as the acid method) and the sulfate method (also known as the alkali method).
addiNam lignin is a high-purity lignin synthesized based on the pine planting industry in South Carolina, USA, which is made from the kraft process paper industry. addiNam lignin includes: sodium lignosulfonate addiNAM-K and lignin addiNAM-P.
Negative electrode expansion agent
The negative expansion agent of the addiBatt series is produced by a unique ball milling process, which effectively solves the shortcomings of poor hydrophilicity and dispersibility of materials such as carbon black and barium sulfate.
The addiBatt expansion agent of the ball milling process effectively improves the consistency and dispersibility of the negative electrode material in the lead paste, which helps to improve the consistency and stability of the battery.
addiBatt FC-200 has small particle size, large specific surface area, strong surface adsorption, large surface energy, etc. It has excellent properties, excellent stability, thickening and thixotropic properties, less surface adsorption water, and gelling ability. Stronger, the best colloidal structure is formed in the sulfuric acid solution.
