This presentation describes a new paper-based material that performs as a fire-resistant shipping wrap designed to prevent catastrophic thermal events during lithium-ion battery transport. The paper wrap employs a novel technology that actively and automatically cools a container's internal environment. The second half of the presentation describes the rigorous thermal runaway safety tests by an SAE-G27 certified lab, the Canadian Research Facility. The results are impressive.


This webinar will cover the following key topics:

  • A description of the technology of a simple light-weight paper wrap to prevent thermal runaways
  • A demonstration of protection methods to wrap lithium-ion batteries to suppress fumes and gasses from escaping during transport to prevent catastrophic events
  • An analysis of the results of the proposed SAE-G27 tests and its unique results
  • New products on the horizon for manufacturers
