It is mandatory for anyone who is in contact with Lithium batteries to have relevant first aid and emergency products available onsite.
As the energy density of batteries increases, battery safety becomes even more critical if the energy is released unintentionally. Accidents related to fires and explosions occur frequently worldwide.
Lithium Primary and Lithium Ion Batteries are ideal for many applications and solutions requiring maximum of energy and -or power into the smallest possible form factor. Because of the high energy and power density of Lithium batteries, they can also be very dangerous if they are not designed, assembled and handled correctly. Overheating, short circuit and mechanical abuse van lead to thermal runaway, thick smoke, toxic gasses, fires and explosions. SCHIVE recommend all professional users of Lithium batteries to make Lithium battery first aid and emergency products available at labs, inventories and other places where lithium and lithium-ion batteries are handled and stocked. SCHIVE offers a wide range of lithium battery emergency response products and kit's.
