Thermal runaway shield acts as a heat sink during normal lithium-ion battery pack operation but also prevents thermal runaway propagation, which is a serious concern for aerospace and defense customers and electric vehicle manufacturers.
A vaporizing thermal capacitor that provides passive prevention of thermal runaway propagation (TRP) in lithium-ion battery packs.
Thermal runaway can occur spontaneously in a Li-ion cell due to a short.
This can trigger an explosive release of electric energy that ruptures the end cap resulting in a flare and combustion of cell materials.
Released heat drives the triggered cell temperatures to > 500°C, causing a dramatic increase in neighboring cell temperatures. Temperatures above the critical 130°C greatly increase the chance for a short in adjacent cells and result in TRP. This product keeps neighboring cell temperatures from rising above 100°C (well below the 130°C threshold) and prevents TRP.
Effective passive thermal management solutions for battery packs ranging from 10 to 4,000 cells are in demand.
This is especially the case with high-performance applications that draw more power from the battery pack, which can be the case with E-Mobility applications.
The company's US-designed, NASA-tested design is a very light-weight, durable heat sink that keeps lithium ion batteries cooler and safer.
A perfect fit for an automotive industry (electric vehicles) that demands safe and reliable, light-weight battery management solutions.

No. 4 KULR Potential Catalyst - KULR's Recent Hot Streak Has It Trading From A Position Of Potential Strength
Over the past 3 weeks, KULR appears to be heating up.
So much so that as of close Friday, KULR had pushed above several key lines of potential support.
Those include KULR's:
- 5-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA)
- 20-Day SMA
- 50-Day SMA
- 5-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA)
- 13-Day EMA
That's great and all, but here's the key detail to pay attention to.
As of close Tuesday, KULR had a 200-Day SMA of just over $2.18.
With so much potential support just below KULR, there may be little resistance towards a return to its 200-Day SMA!
Now, I'm not saying KULR is going to make a big double-digit surge to any previous high around $2.18, but you need to be aware of the potential upside from current levels.
