BACKGROUND:Here are the main components of my electric go kart...
Brand new Samsung INR18650-25R cells (20Amps maximum continuous discharge)
Battery packs: Using the Samsung cells, I plan to have two separate 20S10P packs connected in parallel
Motor: 72V Motenergy Brushless Motor (ME0201014201). Continuous current - approximately 50 - 60 amps at 72V
Charge Controller: Sabvoton (svmc72150) DC Current Limit: 100A
ISSUE: I know that lithium ion battery pack fires are very dangerous and almost impossible to extinguish. However, if I wrapped each battery pack in the following product, would this help “suppress” a battery pack fire so that the driver would have a few extra moments to get away safely?

Basically each battery pack would be shrink wrapped and then wrapped in the fiberglass product as seen in the link above. Finally the entire set up would be placed into a metal casing which would serve as the battery holder. Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
