CellBlock High Heat Gloves are assembled using composite textiles made to withstand extreme heat specifically. They were designed to protect firefighters when handling a lithium-ion battery fire, but they can be employed in virtually any situation where heat resistance and flame protection is necessary, such as construction or welding. One size fits most.
The PED-Pad pillow can be placed over a compromised PED (Personal Electronic Device) in the event of a thermal runaway. The inner CellBlockEX loose-fill will be released, smothering the burning object, extinguishing the fire and consuming smoke and fumes.
CellBlockEX is the environmentally-friendly, mineral-based extinguishing agent used for fire fighting and prevention of problematic fires such as metal fires, lithium-ion battery fires, and combustible liquids. It is composed of non-crystalline glass granulates; these small, lightweight spheres consist of recycled glass with tiny pores on the inside. CellBlockEX is a TRUE BLUE Class-D Shipping Solution.
CellBlock FCS steel drums represent a best-practice method for transporting used, spent, damaged and prototype batteries. Lined with CellBlockEX loose-fill in the perimeter and the base, these provide a higher level of safety than standard drums in Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).
