In a lithium-ion battery the electrolyte usually contains hydrocarbon solvents which fuels the fire. If unchecked extremely high temperatures of over 1,000°C+ can be produced.
By deploying a ‘Fire Cloak’ Electric Vehicle Fire Blanket by Prosol UK the combustion potential is minimised by depriving the fire of oxygen. And because the fire is controlled, temperatures drop rapidly which prevents damage to surrounding vehicles and property.
‘Fire Cloak’ Electric Vehicle Fire Blankets are manufactured from specialised quartz material with a silicon polymer coating.
