Pyromeral Systems Advances Battery Safety for eVTOLs with Ceramic Composite Materials

Pyromeral Systems, a leading innovator in heat-resistant mineral composites, is at the forefront of ensuring passenger safety in the rapidly evolving world of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft 🌐:

đŸ”„Â Protecting Against Thermal Runaway: Pyromeral’s cutting-edge PyroKarb material, a carbon fiber-reinforced glass-ceramic composite, has demonstrated remarkable resistance to thermal runaway events in eVTOL batteries. Even when exposed to intense open flames during a thermal runaway, PyroKarb remains virtually unscathed, making it an ideal solution for battery enclosures. Unlike traditional carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP), PyroKarb composites are completely incombustible, boasting a low density of 1.65 kg/dmÂł. These materials release no smoke or harmful gases when subjected to elevated temperatures and meet the most stringent fire safety requirements. 🌟

đŸ”„Â Lightweight Alternative to Titanium: Pyromeral’s ceramic composite materials offer a game-changing advantage over titanium. By replacing heavy titanium components with PyroKarb, eVTOL manufacturers can achieve significant weight savings without compromising safety. Lighter vehicles mean improved performance, longer flight times, and enhanced efficiency. 🚀

đŸ”„Â Torch and Grid (UL2596) Tested and Approved: All Pyromeral materials undergo rigorous testing, including the Torch and Grid test developed by UL in the United States. PyroKarb has successfully passed these tests, reinforcing its suitability for eVTOL applications. Whether it’s protecting battery casings or contributing to overall weight reduction, PyroKarb delivers exceptional performance. đŸ’Ș

đŸ”„Â Global Impact: Pyromeral is actively engaged in around ten projects related to thermal runaway protection for batteries, primarily in Europe and the United States. Our commitment to safety and innovation drives us to create materials that redefine the future of eVTOL technology. 🌎
