LIBIK

Lithium-Ion Battery Incident Kits

Empower and protect with the LIBIK System, a battery fire suppression and containment kit embraced by the aviation industry.

CellBlock's Lithium Ion Battery Incident Kit (LIBIK) is a full line of battery fire suppression tools that are versatile, simple and effective. The LIBIK is a robust solution to a wide variety of battery fire situations in personal electronic devices (PED). Its unique effectiveness lies in the use of CellBlockEX, an innovative new dry fire-suppressant media, which has been shown to extinguish a lithium-ion battery fire in seconds without the use of water or halon. CellBlockEX is comprised of a very lightweight inert mineral that poses no health risk, and does not have a measurable shelf life or environmental impact.

No battery fire situation is ever the same. Our options allow you to confront changing risks.

A PED is Overheating

When a device gets overly hot, it can be placed in the LIBIK's battery fire suppression bag using the supplied high-heat gloves and FireShield blanket. The bag’s layered fire retardant materials can handle temperatures in excess of 1000°C (1832°F). The interior of the bag is lined with PED-Pad fire suppression pillows containing CellBlockEX dry media. These pillows will automatically release the CellBlockEX in the event of a thermal runaway. No activation is required. The CellBlockEX extinguishes the fire and absorbs the smoke, gases, and flammable electrolyte associated with a lithium-ion battery fire. This would preclude potentially diverting an aircraft in flight since the hazards would be contained. If there is no thermal event, the device can be returned to the passenger or retained for forensic analysis upon arrival.

A PED is on Fire

The LIBIK contains high-heat gloves, PED-Pad fire suppression pillows, and a LIBIK FireShield Blanket to aid in addressing a PED in thermal runaway. The FAA recommends that a PED fire be extinguished before handling the device for placement in a bag. This is your solution. The LIBIK FireShield Blanket and PED-Pads can be used to approach and extinguish active flames in-place and help to absorb fumes in a matter of seconds. Once the battery fire is extinguished, the device can then be safely handled and placed in the containment bag, using the high-heat gloves and fire blanket.

The LIBIK bag’s geometry is such that it will fit anywhere that you could stow a carry-on in the passenger cabin. We offer kit sizes to accommodate the largest laptops on the market as well as all tablets and cell phones. Flight Deck kits are also available in a smaller profile.
