Aerogel Insulation Blankets are a
range of flexible bulk insulation products which utilise flexible,
non-woven battings impregnated with an amorphous silica gel
(Aerogel). Suitable for commercial and industrial applications.
The products have such low thermal
conductivity that they can be classed as a superinsulator.
The blankets also have a high compression resistance, are
hydrophobic (repel liquid), are permeable to vapour and air, and
have a long life with minimal deterioration.
The products will greatly reduce heat
transfer through building elements and assist in reducing energy
consumption for cooling and heating loads placed on air
conditioning systems. The products are suitable for wall, roof and
flooring applications and can produce a continuous layer, which is
effective at eliminating thermal bridging in the framework of a
building. The Aerogel products have one of the highest
R-values (per mm) of any insulating product providing equivalent,
or better, thermal resistance than thicker insulation
The Aerogels Australia range spans the
entire service temperature range and includes:
- Pyrogel XT - suitable for very high temperature (up to
650°C) applications including pipes, vessels and tanks. It is
available with a factory applied foil vapour barrier (Pyrogel
XTC) for low to moderate applications such as chilled water
- Pyrogel 2250 - ultra-thin blanket and suitable for
high temperature applications (up to 200°C)
- Cryogel Z - suitable for high (up to 90°C),
sub-ambient and cryogenic (-270°C) applications. The product
remains flexible at cryogenic temperatures eliminating the
contraction joints used to prevent compressive failure in
alternative insulation products.
- Spaceloft - suitable for normal temperature
applications (below 200°C degrees).
