UK-based Porvair Filtration (Porvair) has developed flame arrestor vents with super hydrophobic Vyon materials to safeguard potential explosions in lead-acid batteries.

According to Porvair, the super hydrophobic material is resistant to most acid, organic chemicals and temperatures up to 110ºC while offering chemical capability. They are designed to reduce the risk of acid spillage and to release excess gas from lead-acid batteries during operating cycles and prevent flame ingress into the battery.
