AVD is a fire extinguishing agent that is designed to suppress Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery fires fast, perfect for superyachts!
AVD fire extinguishers contains an agent called Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion. AVD is non-flammable and has excellent insulation properties which is perfect for Li-ion battery fires. AVD itself is chemically and physically inert whilst also being non-toxic to both plants and aquatic life.
We have partnered with the industry leading manufacturer of Li-ion AVD fire suppression systems so you, your crew and guests can have peace of mind onboard your superyacht when using products with Li-ion batteries.
AVD is water-based, therefore extinguishing the fire and cooling the battery cells.
AVD is film-forming and creates an oxygen barrier around the cells.
AVD is encapsulates the fuel source preventing re-ignition.
AVD impacts each element of the fire triangle.
What are the benefits of AVD?
LITHIUM-ION BATTERY RISKS?
Volatile under stress:
Caused by damage, misuse or incorrect charging.
Occurs when a chemical process within the Li-ion battery produces heat and flammable toxic gasses extremely quickly. Often happens before any flame appears.
