Aerogel Insulation

Aerogel insulation is ideal for pleasure and racing craft, commercial ships, and other maritime applications. Aerogel insulation features reduced thickness yielding a thin profile that allows use in tight spaces common on any type of craft or offshore platform. Since it provides 2-8 times better thermal performance than traditional insulation for hot environments, aerogel can be effectively used to wrap engine exhaust pipes. Physically robust, it is easily cut and conforms to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access. Because of its density, aerogel insulation also offers good acoustical performance as a sound barrier for low frequency sound and vibration. Hydrophobic aerogel insulation repels and resists water, making it extremely effective in a wide variety of marine applications, and accommodates maximum temperatures up to 1200°F.

Pyrogel® XT-E High Temperature Aerogel Insulation

Pyrogel® XT-E insulation is a flexible aerogel blanket designed to deliver maximum thermal protection with minimal weight and thickness. Its unique properties – very low thermal conductivity, high temperature resistance, and water resistance (hydrophobicity) – make it a superior solution for high temperature insulation applications. Ideal for insulating piping, vessels, tanks, and other related equipment, Pyrogel® XT-E has a maximum use temperature of 1200°F

Cryogel® and Cryogel Z®

Cryogel® and Cryogel Z® are flexible insulations designed for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications. Their unique properties – extremely low thermal conductivity, superior flexibility, and water resistance (hydrophobicity) – make them a superior solution for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications. Additionally, Cryogel Z® has an integral vapor barrier engineered for zero water vapor permeability.

Removable Insulation Covers

Asbestos free, environmentally safe RapidWrap® thermal removable insulation covers incorporate a totally self-contained insulation system, constructed of a fiberglass, ceramic, or aerogel filler, encased with a fully encapsulated outer jacketing. Designed to withstand harsh conditions, including temperatures to1200ºF in its basic form, durable RapidWrap® covers also offer the economy of long life.

RapidWrap® removable insulation covers are an optimum choice to conserve energy, preserve process temperature and reduce heat loss.  Pacor insulation jackets are used in a variety of applications where heat conservation and process temperature is a concern, such as engine exhaust pipes.  Because of its density, aerogel insulation also offers good acoustical performance as a sound barrier for low frequency sound and vibration.

RapidWrap® removable insulation covers are an easy solution to reduce heat loss and lower energy costs. Pacor insulation jackets are used in a variety of applications where heat conservation and process temperature is a concern such as gate and flange valves, turbines, piping, exhaust stacks, expansion joints, diesel turbo covers, acoustic applications, insulating sleeves and heat exchangers.

Incombustible Hullboard

A light weight, semi-rigid board insulation made from felted glass fibers in a nominal density of 2.9 pcf (46.5 kg/m3), with an operating temperature limit of 450°F (232°C). It is designed specifically to provide thermal and acoustical insulating control for the hull and deckheads aboard naval and merchant vessels and drilling rig platforms.

FireMaster Blankets®

FireMaster® blankets provide fire protection materials capable of fire protection at high temperatures for extended periods of time. FireMaster® blankets are lightweight, non-combustible, and contain no chemical binders, therefore do not produce toxic smoke at high temperatures.  These blankets feature high temperature resistance 1200°C, and zero flame spread and smoke developed rating per ASTM E84.
