PACT, LLC is a world leader in manufacturing industrial packaging and crating solutions. With over 25 years of experience, PACT has designed such popular industry solutions as Liftvans and Pleatwrap, as well as custom packaging products for the furniture and automotive industries. PACT was founded on the idea of sustainability and continues to embrace a green future in the packing and crating industry.

One of PACT’s most innovative products is Thermo Shield™, a paper-based, fire-resistant shipping wrap designed to prevent catastrophes caused by battery explosions during transport. Utilizing a revolutionary technology that actively and automatically cools the internal environment of a corrugated container, the paper-based, 100% recyclable protective logistics product prevents damage to the outside shipping container, suppresses fumes or gasses from escaping, and limits external oxygen supply.

Thermo Shield™ comprises a lightweight pleated material with a non-toxic moisture vapor application that ensures the safety of lithium-ion products in transport. The new solution can suppress thermal runaway and propagation at temperatures up to 800°C, and restrict the temperature outside the wrap itself to 80°C.

The new solution’s credentials are a step up from competitors: Thermo Shield™ is the only paper-based wrap solution that exceeds the proposed SAE G27 lithium battery packaging performance standards for safety in shipping via air, land and sea. The shipper also is lightweight and reusable, lending to cost efficiency both at initial purchase and during use.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a lithium battery explosion occurs during shipping once every 10 days. The urgent industry needs to mitigate these dangerous mishaps makes Thermo Shield™ a potentially revolutionary solution, one capable of drastically limiting the amount of thermal runaway to protect both logistics personnel and valuable cargo.

The main activity of Advantelec, is the design and the commercialization of Lithium-ion batteries for IOT applications, medical device, emergency power supply for security systems, especially in the field of consumer electronics.

Advantelec started in the battery sector since 2014, which accounts 50 % of the turnover. It markets different types of batteries, such as lithium-ion pouch batteries, lithium-ion cylindrical cells and lithium-ion battery packs. Advantelec offers customized batteries, including lithium-ion pouch battery, which are widely used in the consumer electronics sector (e.g. telephone sets, multimedia players, video games consoles etc.).

The knowledges of Advantelec of the Asian suppliers, the technical skills of the study office and the experiences in the field of the battery. Advantelec is planning to build a lithium-ion pouch battery manufacturing plant in France in 2023. The specification of the future cells is that they will be of small capacity (the maximum would be on the order of the ampere-hour), and under a mechanical format that we call flexible bag. In addition to these cells, the site will allow their assembly with a protection circuit (called PCM), in order to transform them into a battery. These high performance batteries will be applied in the consumer electronics sector for high-end batteries and niche markets : medical, IOT, sports etc. This production line includes a complete prototyping line, a mass production line starting with prefabricated electrodes and a test laboratory. Thanks to this production line located in France, a better service will be offered to European manufacturers of electronic products since they will have access to batteries of as good quality as those produced in Asia and in a faster time than by importing them. This project by Advantelec will allow them to get their products to market faster.
