Simple do it yourself fireproofing
Yes, the heat needs to be hot enough to cause charring, but not too hot. Propane/Butane torch will get it hot enough to char. Oxy/Acet is hot enough when the O2 isn't turned on and about 6" or more away (obviously this goes beyond what a Lithium cell would do).
But, if the heat isn't hot enough, charring will not occur and instead it'll be baked and/or dried out and flake away.

In the end, we really don't know what will happen until someone builds a box lined with the starlite, drops a bunch of lithiums in there, and makes them catch fire. Sooooo, we need a tester and really cameras to take excellent video of the process. Oh, and lots of spare time to go over the whole process. This rules me out currently, as I lack the hardware to do this test.

I nominate......

watch out with sugar.......
I used to make model rocket engines with that.

Very impressive, i must admit.

I am planning to use ceramic insulation wool, or plain rockwool, between the packs and the mounting board.
So there will be no heat transfer, to the wooden mounting board and the "face side" will be open for cooling.
So far for my safety demands, maybe to much?

Again very impressive.....

@ korisan,
I will have some time this year.
Would be an interesting thing/setup to do.

Still learning English. Learning Li ion and solar technology.

1400 cells in packs Exclamation above 2500mah and 90%soh.
~400 cells between 1800-2500 and above 90%soh(sell?)
600 cells between 2200 - 3000mah, 80-90%soh (sell?)
2600 waiting for testing.
approx: 500 cells not safe for use: dead, heaters, to high ir or sd

Time is our enemy, must work to, the sun is our friend, must relax to.
With best regards
