ZARGES launches battery box for safe transportation
19 July 2018
DANGEROUS PACKAGING expert, ZARGES, is expanding its portfolio with the launch of the K470 Battery Box aluminium case, specially designed for transporting and safekeeping lithium-ion batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries are considered dangerous goods and are only allowed to be transported in secure containers because the battery may cause a fire.
Usually, an alert is raised if smoke is seen escaping from a package holding a battery. However, the ZARGES K470 Battery Box case avoids this from happening. The new dangerous goods packaging is specially designed for transporting and storing a defective or damaged battery in a safe and convenient way. The interior of the case is coated with an intumescent material.
In case of fire, the case's interior swells up and prevents the flames from spreading further. The underlying principle: the special absorbent material ensures that solid components are filtered out of the battery gases and that liquid constituents condense on the fibres’ surface. This is how ZARGES’ aluminium cases prevent any leaked flammable gases from igniting.
