EV fire blanket test

Centro Zaragoza tests the Bridgehill reusable fire blanket on an electric vehicle.

Together with our partner Centro Zaragoza in Spain we tested our reusable car fire blanket on a battery fire in a Nissan Leaf. 

The test started with enabling thermal runaway in the battery. After covering the car with the Bridgehill reusable car fire blanket, the temperature dropped from 1080°C to 244° degrees in a few seconds. Because of the thermal runaway it is not possible to extinguish the battery fire. In case of a real fire, the Bridgehill car fire blanket will isolate and prevent the fire from spreading to other cars and surroundings. 

Full report is enclosed.
