  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover spill containment for stationary lead-acid and similar acid electrolyte battery systems investigated for liquid tightness, level of electrolyte absorption, pH neutralization capability, and flame spread resistance.

    1.2 These systems are intended to provide a means of containment for hazardous material liquids in the event of electrolyte leakage from stationary lead-acid or similar acid electrolyte battery systems.
