DNV-GL Laboratories Evaluates Lithium Prevent™ for Lithium Battery Runaway Containment Material
Rochester, NY – (December 2015). DNV-GL evaluated PyroPhobic System Ltd.’s Lithium Prevent™ at the NY BEST laboratory in Rochester, NY. The DNV GL published report titled: Evaluation Guidelines for Advanced Battery Containment Materials, tested Lithium Prevent™ in a worst case scenario to be able to contain a lithium ion cobalt battery thermal runaway fire for energy storage systems. Lithium Prevent™ “contained the high temperatures for nearly 30 minutes, which would allow secondary systems or first responders ample time to react to the event and contain the situation”. Lithium Prevent™ achieved the “intent of a passive safety system to limit cascading to the larger system”. The lithium battery fire was prevented from cascading through the pack, thereby containing the event within the pack. Lithium Prevent™ “demonstrated significant potential to limit or halt propagation”.
PyroPhobic Systems Ltd. is a material science company with unique, proprietary intumescent, fire resistant, thermoplastic technologies that are injection molded to form fire resistant battery pack components that contain the spread of runaway lithium batteries. Lithium Prevent™ is evaluated by NASA and determined to be effective at containing cascading lithium battery fires. To learn more about integrating Lithium Prevent™ with your: energy storage system; electric vehicle battery pack; and lithium battery bulk cargo transportation packaging, please call (705) 730-0840.
PyroPhobic Systems will be exhibiting at The Battery Show 2016 at booth #1417
