Daramic Innovations Profiled in 2017 BCI Yearbook

May 5th, 2017

Charlotte, NC - Daramic, LLC (http://www.daramic .com), the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance polyethylene (PE) battery separators for lead-acid batteries, was featured in the 2017 BCI yearbook, which highlights industry-wide successes over the past year.

The interviews from Dawn Heng, Global Strategic Marketing Director, focused on Daramic’s innovations in Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB) - Daramic EFS & Daramic RipTide. These new solutions address the needs of the start-stop market including problems of voltage drop, acid stratification, and charge acceptance. Daramic EFS is designed to reduce battery internal resistance, which improve voltage drop performance allowing for a seamless car electronic experience as the engine switches from on to off to on again. Daramic RipTide, the second major separator innovation, reduces acid stratification in the start-stop partial state of charge environment through a novel separator profile design.

Additionally, these innovations were also submitted for the 2017 Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Award. This year's entry marks the second consecutive year Daramic has been announced as a finalist for the prestigious, industry-wide award celebrating innovation in equipment, processes, services, and products that advance the lead battery industry.
