Hammond is focused on serving the global battery industry and developing lead-acid chemistry for advanced energy storage applications including renewable energy and automotive electrification.
The automotive market — vital for the lead battery industry— has ambitious goals for electrification and decarbonization. Hammond offers battery manufacturers a full line of Advanced Expanders and other performance additives that are engineered to improve charge acceptance, cycle life, and more.
“Global demand for energy storage systems (ESS) is forecast to grow to more than 140GWh by 2030,” according to the Consortium for Battery Innovation. Hammond is committed to developing innovative performance-enhancing products that will enable advanced lead batteries to play a leading role in this growing sector.
Lead batteries remain the practical, affordable choice for UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and Telecommunication applications. Hammond’s products, like GravityGuardTM, are designed to improve battery life and performance in cycle life by reducing acid stratification.
Lead batteries are critical for the global motive power market. To meet evolving technical demands, Hammond’s research team has developed the next generation of SureCure® to provide enhanced charge acceptance of the positive plate and longer cycle-life.
