Thank you for your interest in CellBlock FCS, a solution for the safe handling, collection, transportation and storage of lithium-ion batteries.
Numerous fire hazards exist in production, transportation, storage and operation. Companies need peace of mind knowing their people, products and profits are protected. And they want three things: safety, reliability and affordability. What began as a solution to the airline industry, has grown into a comprehensive line of fire containment products suitable for any business including panels, transportation and storage cases, bags, pads, drums and loose-fill. CellBlock FCS helps you safely handle, transport and store LI batteries and other dangerous goods – from flammable liquids to flammable solids – with confidence.
Located in Standish, Maine, CellBlock FCS provides you with peace of mind knowing you’re using the safest, greenest, simplest and most effective products on the market.
CellBlockEx® LOOSE-FILL FIRE SUPPRESSANT MEDIA
Containment boxes and other structures made with CellBlock technology can be filled with CellBlockEx loose-fill. It is the CellBlockEx which extinguishes the fire and absorbs the smoke, gases and flammable electrolyte associated with a lithium-ion battery incident/fire. The CellBlockEx material itself is an inert mineral that poses no health risk, and has no measurable shelf life. The material is also very lightweight at 5.76 kg (12.7 lbs) per cubic foot.
Lithium-ion batteries that are covered in CellBlockEx and enclosed within our CellBlock panels are safely contained and suppressed during a thermal run-away incident. Whether the batteries are uncompromised, or have been compromised and an event is imminent, the CellBlock/CellBlockEx unit provides the optimal turn-key solution for safe handling, transporting and storing lithium-ion batteries and products containing them, all while exceeding stringent DOT requirements.

CellBlock® high-temperature fire containment ULD, ULD Liner Tiles, and Cargo Bay Liner Panels
Aluminum structures, such as ULDs and cargo bays can be easily retrofitted with CellBlock tiles or panels to protect the outer shell from the extreme heat of lithium-ion battery fires. In addition, the rigid strength of the CellBlock panels make them an ideal substrate for the construction of high-temperature fire containment shipping and storage units. Thicknesses are based on customer requirements; a 2.54cm (1″) tile or panel can withstand up to 6 hours of direct heat in excess of 1100°C (2012°F).

CellBlock® Transportation Units
Available in two sizes and designed to fit in an overhead luggage compartment, CellBlock Transportation Units allow for safe air transport of lithium-ion batteries and devices containing them. These units utilize CellBlock panels coupled with CellBlockEx loose-fill media. If the batteries or devices within the unit experience a thermal event, the inner panels insulate the outside of the box from the extreme heat, while the CellBlockEx serves as both a fire suppressant and a filter, absorbing harmful fumes within the unit.

CellBlock® FCS Hazardous Materials Drums
CellBlock FCS steel drums represent a best-practice method for transporting used, spent, damaged and prototype batteries. Lined with 1.5” of CellBlockEX loose-fill in the perimeter and 4” in the base, these provide a higher level of safety than standard drums in Hazard Materials Regulations (HMR).

LIBIK is an acronym for Lithium-Ion Battery Incident Kit.
The all new LIBIK is fabricated with layered fireretardent materials that can handle temperatures up to 1648° C (3000°F), plus multiple layers of CellBlockEx loose-fill fire-suppressant media. The standard LIBIK’s geometry is such that it will fit anywhere that you could stow a carry-on. Our new prototype unit will accommodate the largest laptops on the market as well as all tablets and cell phones. A pair of fire retardent gloves and a fire blanket are included with the kit.

CellBlockEx® 0.3 FIRE EXTINGUISHER MEDIA
This technology is new. CellBlockEx has just released their fine particle offering for use in pressure vessels, such as metal fire extinguishers. In 2017 a small extinguisher containing CellBlockEx 0.3 will be integrated as part of the LIBIK system to extinguish flames prior to insertion into the containment box.
