The efficiency of oxygen ionization in a lead-acid mock-up was studied using a separator based on an absorptive glass mat (AGM) and polymer non-woven fibrous materials based on F-2M polyvinylidene fluoride and polystyrene. Fibrous material obtained by capillary-free electrospinning. The technological and structural characteristics of the polymer material are investigated. It was found that the use of a sandwich polymer/AGM/polymer separator significantly increases the efficiency of oxygen ionization.
