FyreWrap® LiB Materials

FyreWrap® LiB (Lithium-ion Battery) Performance Materials are a family of high-temperature, lightweight materials designed to aid in the prevention of thermal runaway propagation in lithium based battery applications along with providing electrical and thermal protections within the battery pack.

Prevent thermal runaway propagation and cascading battery fires

The safety of lithium-ion based batteries has attracted much media attention due to the potential risk of fire from thermal runaway. During a thermal runaway, the high heat of the failing cell inside a battery pack may propagate to the next cells, causing them to become thermally unstable. A chain reaction can then occur in which each cell can combust and even explode on its own timetable. To increase safety, packs should include high temperature thermal and electrical protections to help prevent propagation and short circuits. This will aid in shielding neighboring cells, and limiting damage to external equipment and people.
