|ICS Code (Alkaline secondary cells and batteries):||29.220.30|
This test method covers the pretreatment, test conditions, apparatus, and procedure to determine the ionic resistivity, commonly referred to in the battery industry as electrical resistance (ER) of an alkaline battery separator immersed in an electrolyte of 40 % potassium hydroxide (KOH).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
