An upcoming episode of Advancements with Ted Danson will focus on developments in impact resistant electrolyte technology.

In this segment, viewers will learn how SAFIRE™ (a patented Li-ion electrolyte additive) stops explosions and fire through an instantaneous liquid-to-solid transformation upon kinetic impact, and imparts ballistic protection, all which are inherent in the electrolyte chemistry, and will see how this results in increased safety, stability, and higher performance.

“As our society pivots towards electric vehicles, eBikes, and other Lithium-ion (Li-ion) powered equipment, the SAFIRE additive will enhance the safety and performance of Li-ion batteries,” said John Lee, co-founder and CEO, Safire Technology Group, Inc. “We’re excited to showcase SAFIRE and explain how it can be easily added to any existing battery-making process.”

Spectators will see how the integrated structural batteries are enabling safer batteries for a safer world.

“As the world’s first hybrid-state liquid-to-solid shear thickening battery safe technology, we look forward to sharing how the technology works to prevent fire and explosion during a crash or impact,” said John Galvin, senior producer for the Advancements series.

About Safire:
Safire Technology Group, Inc. (Safire) is a venture-backed company developing batteries that help prevent fire and explosion in kinetic impacts, such as electric vehicle crashes. The company’s core technology, SAFe Impact Resistant Electrolyte (SAFIRE™), is the world’s first patented and proprietary drop-in additive for Lithium-ion batteries that prevents fire and explosion through an instantaneous liquid-to-solid transformation upon kinetic impacts, such as electric vehicle or eBike crashes. The additive provides a safe, easily integrated solution for EVs and other Li-ion-powered equipment, resulting in increased safety and stability, higher performance, and projectile and ballistic protection. Safire has been awarded an exclusive license to five patents to date through its partnership with the technology’s inventor, Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
