Lithium-ion batteries are part of our daily lives: smartphones, tablets, laptops, latest generation appliances, e-cigs, bicycles and electric scooters, cars, etc.
For our safety it’s important to know that, in the event of a failure of a lithium-ion battery, the common powder, foam or carbon dioxide extinguishers are not able to counteract, nor to extinguish the flames of a possible fire.
Thanks to the extinguishing technology of the AVD (Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion) innovative principal the fire is suffocated, preventing possible re-ignitions and propagations. For this reason, specific fire extinguishers adopting AVD protection should be used to combat lithium-ion battery fires.
