As the number of battery technologies continue to increase to charge up the modern world’s multitude of electronic devices, so too has the threat of lethal battery fires. In fact, according to a recent report by CNN, the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) attributed 216 fires to faulty batteries in 2022, resulting in pleas for better regulation and safety standards. Packaging and Crating Technologies (PACT®) in Connecticut has answered the call by developing a patented, fire-suppressant packaging wrap called PACT® Thermo ShieldTM designed to control lithium battery thermal runaway, which causes dangerous and oftentimes deadly fires. It has passed the proposed testing standards of the SAE International for safety in shipping lithium-ion batteries via land, sea and air.
“Lithium-ion batteries are in most every electronic device you own whether it be for work or play and can become hazardous if they’ve been damaged or have some kind of defect, ultimately causing devastating, explosive fires ,” said Rodger Mort, President of PACT®, LLC. “Our proprietary PACT® Thermo ShieldTM product line is a protective and affordable solution that is quickly becoming an industry must when travelling, shipping, storing or disposing of products containing lithium-ion batteries.”
