A term used to describe the lead “paste” that is held in place by grids that make up a battery cell. This term usually refers to both the positive and negative plate material. The material reacts chemically to produce electrical energy by releasing free electrons. In an industrial battery, the materials are: lead peroxide (positive) and sponge lead (negative). One active material is oxidized, while the other is reduced.
