Industrial Oxides

DESIGNED FOR DEEP-CYCLING &
STANDBY POWER APPLICATIONS

Hammond consistently produces custom lead oxides for batteries that require deep-cycling performance, like those used in forklifts, golf cars, floor scrubbers, and e-Bikes. Red lead is often used for these applications and for batteries that provide standby power in case of the main supply failure in data centers, telecommunications towers, hospitals, and power plants.

Sustainability in Action

RECYCLED LEAD IS A PRIMARY SOURCE IN PRODUCING OXIDES FOR OUR CUSTOMERS

Hammond works with our global automotive and industrial customers to supply their specific needs. The majority of our oxides are produced by sourcing sustainable, renewable, and recycled lead.
