Area of operation fire departments
If an e-car has an accident, there is always a risk of damaging the battery and causing a fire. A chain reaction can start at around 75 °C and one battery cell after the other can explode. The VLITEX fire blanket is a material and personnel-saving way of reducing the danger posed by an e-car fire to people and the environment.
The silicone-coated glass fibre fabric abruptly reduces smoke development and withstands the high temperatures of a battery fire well. Flames and heat remain under the blanket and the impact on the surroundings is minimised. We also refer to VLITEX Premium M, which has been tested for use in battery fires, as a fire limitation blanket. Depending on the fire load, the VLITEX fire blanket can be used several times.
