Look twice. This is way more than a lithium battery bag. No product on the market gives you more tools for in-place fire containment while simultaneously reducing toxic smoke and hazardous fumes from lithium-ion battery fires. The LIBIK is an incredibly robust solution that owes its effectiveness to CellBlockEX, an innovative dry granulate that is able to quickly extinguish thermal runaways in lithium-ion batteries and uptake vapors without the use of halon or liquids.
Integral to the LIBIK bag design are PED-Pad fire suppression pillows filled with CellBlockEX. When necessary, these pillows may be removed and applied directly to the fire. Deployment of the loose-fill granulate is automatic and fast. A LIBIK fire blanket can also be used over the top of the pillow to further suppress the event.
The PED-Pad pillows have proven useful in difficult-to-extinguish areas as well, such as overhead bins and seat pockets.
Nothing is more important than the welfare of crew and passengers. The LIBIK bag is capable of suppressing and containing any thermal runaway event. However, FAA Guidance clearly says “do not move the PED”. You must suppress before you contain. The LIBIK kit effectively addresses this concern and embodies the safest and simplest means of extinguishing a lithium-ion battery fire while minimizing exposure to toxic smoke and vapors.
