PowerFrame® grid technology
PowerFrame grid technology, developed by Johnson Controls, is the next-generation technology of vehicle batteries. The innovative design of a PowerFrame positive grid is stronger and longer-lasting, delivering optimum performance for your car.
PowerFrame grid technology is designed to minimize the corrosion that leads to battery failure, allowing for you and your vehicle to continue moving. This corrosion occurs over time as a result of the charge-discharge cycles your car battery experiences. Purchasing a car battery with PowerFrame grid technology gives you peace of mind that your car will start day in and day out.
PowerFrame patented grid technology was built for strength. It is up to 66% more durable and more corrosion-resistant than other grid designs.
The PowerFrame grid design improves the performance of your vehicle’s electrical system by providing superior starting performance with up to 70% better electrical flow than other grid technologies. This means more consistent starts.
The PowerFrame manufacturing process uses 20% less energy and produces 20% less greenhouse gases than other manufacturing methods.
PowerFrame Battery Applications
PowerFrame technology can be found in standard flooded batteries and in Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) batteries.
PowerFrame Battery Construction
Johnson Controls was the first manufacturer of lead-acid batteries in the world to produce a stamped grid. We have been perfecting the PowerFrame® grid technology for more than 15 years and servicing customers with it for over 10 years.
PowerFrame grids are made by rolling metal into strips that are then stamped into the grid shape. The process is continuous and provides the greatest flexibility for power optimization. The rolling process elongates the grain structure, which helps resist corrosion and provides strength even under extreme conditions.
