Labelmaster, a company specializing in dangerous goods transport, and Procyon-Alpha Squared, a technology provider focused on aerospace applications, have teamed up to develop and manufacture Obexion, a complete line of protective packaging solutions engineered specifically for shipping and storing lithium batteries and devices that contain them. According to Labelmaster, this new brand of packaging uses passive technology to achieve capabilities ranging from fire resistance to thermal, flame, and gas management to full ballistic and pressure management that will mitigate risks by reducing the potential for thermal runaways.
This packaging is available in multiple formats: a multi-use metal design for larger-sized batteries and large quantities of batteries, and a lightweight fiberboard box for single-use and reverse logistics needs.
To facilitate assembly and reduce shipping costs, the Obexion line of packaging does not contain heavy inner packing components, such as gel-packs or heavy liners, and does not contain additional pellets, other voluminous fill items, or outer packaging. (Labelmaster, www.labelmaster.com/obexion)
