A PED fire has been suppressed by CellBlockEX. Does it need to be submerged in water to further cool the device?
This step is not needed. Extinguish the fire by placing a PED-Pad fire-suppression pillow and Fire Shield Blanket over the device. When the fire-suppression pillow is exposed to flame, it will automatically disperse the CellBlockEX and begin to immediately suppress the thermal runaway. Once the device has been extinguished and cooled by CellBlockEX, it can then be placed in the LIBIK bag for containment until landing. No water or soaking is necessary and is not recommended. When water is placed on an overheating device it causes additional hazardous by-products in the form of toxic vapors and runoff.
