INDUSTRIAL INSULATION SPECIALISTS: FOR YOUR COLD AND HOT INSULATION NEEDS
Arrowhead provides you with a new way to think about industrial insulation
Aerogels have been in existence for more than 70 years. They consist of lightweight silica solids derived from a gel in which the liquid component has been replaced with gas. The silica solids,
which are poor conductors, consist of very small, three-
comprise only 3% of the solids. Volume conduction through the solid is therefore very low. The remaining 97% of the volume is composed of air in extremely small nanopores. The air has
little room to move, inhibiting both convection and gas phase conduction.
These characteristics make aerogel the world's lowest density solid and most
effective thermal insulator. The outstanding thermal properties of aerogels have
been studied for decades, but Aspen Aerogels has developed a technically and economically
viable form of aerogel for industrial insulation uses. Our unique process integrates aerogel
into a carrier to create flexible, resilient, durable aerogel blankets with superior insulating properties.
Environmentally Friendly, Safe, and Durable Products
Environmentally friendly: Strict environmental regulations and increased awareness have led to the requirement for environmentally friendly insulation materials for use in industry. Aerogels pose no chemical threat to the environment. They are silica-
Cryogel Z and Pyrogel XT offer excellent resistance to flame spread and smoke emission. In actual hydrocarbon fires, they protect piping and equipment longer, which is critical to increasing the reaction time needed to respond to a catastrophic event.
Cryogel Z and Pyrogel XT are lighter than other insulation materials on an installed basis. This enables them to be easily and safely handled on the job site. They can be installed in longer lengths than traditional insulations, which improve installation rates. Their light weight also reduces overall loading of the pipe and equipment support structures.
Cryogel Z and Pyrogel XT are flexible materials that deform under compression. They have excellent bounce-
Cryogel Z and Pyrogel XT are extremely hydrophobic and therefore have outstanding resistance to moisture.
Cryogel Z and Pyrogel XT are super-
