Title
(EN) Zinc alloy for alkaline batteries
Abstract
(EN)
A zinc alloy for use in zinc-alkaline batteries having improved gassing properties is prepared from bismuth and indium in a molar ratio of about 1:2, magnesium and with the major part being zinc that is substantially free of lead and mercury. Methods for preparing and using the alloy are also provided.
