  1. 1. Lattice Energy LLC Thermite reactions are possible in Li-battery runaways Document has been removed at the request of a third party Thermites are involved in battery industry’s dirty little secret: field-failures Thermite and related reactions release enough heat to actually melt metals Lewis Larsen Example of a somewhat larger-scale thermite reaction spraying molten metal So-called “thermite reactions” burning at thousands of degrees have a causal connection to absolute worst case fieldfailure thermal runaways in chemical batteries President and CEO Lattice Energy LLC October 20, 2013 An extreme type of runaway called a field-failure creates energetic microenvironments inside batteries; we refer to them somewhat ominously as The Devil’s Cut “I have learned to use the word ‘impossible’ with the greatest of caution.” Werner von Braun Contact: 1-312-861-0115 lewisglarsen@gmail.com http://www.slideshare.net/lewisglarsen/presentations http://www.popsci.com/node/30347 October 20. 2013 http://www.amazingrust.com/Experiments/how_to/Thermite.html Lattice Energy LLC, Copyright 2013 All rights reserved 1
