AVD IS A REVOLUTIONARY NEW FIRE EXTINGUISHING AGENT SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR LITHIUM-ION BATTERY FIRES
Examples of typical consumer goods and industrial products that may pose a fire risk:
-- Mobile phones and portable computing equipment -- Power tools -- Radio communications equipment -- UPS -- Health and hospital monitoring and test equipment -- Electric vehicles, bikes and scooters -- Radio controlled vehicles, watercraft, aircraft
The batteries in these devices can be damaged and pose a fire risk. When there is a short circuit or the cells Overheat then the electrolyte can decompose into flammable gases which can then ignite. This process is called thermal runaway and propagates through the battery pack resulting in complete destruction of the cells.
Testing has shown that typical water and foam extinguishing agents are not effective in extinguishing these fires and they frequently reignite.
Third-party testing has proven Lith-Ex to be effective in suppressing and extinguishing lithium battery fires. It is also proven that Lith-Ex prevents re-ignition by forming an encapsulating barrier over the battery cells.
