Microporous Insulation

Microporous Insulation Sheet Board Panel Blanket

Low Cost | Low Thickness | High Strength | High Performance Insulation

Microporous insulation products, board, panel, pipe section, flexible blanket, rigid slatted panel, overstitched are manufactured by mixing high quality agglomerates of pyrogenic silica and selective grade opacifiers along with filaments and pressed at a very specific pressure range to achieve a very narrow range of optimum highest possible porosity and unique range of densities to deliver a product with lowest possible heat loss through conduction, convection, radiations, and gaseous conduction. The thermal conductivity of Microporous insulation is lower than the still air at high temperatures.

What is Microporous Insulation Material?

Microporous insulation is a composite material comprising of a blend of Fumed Silica, MicroSilica, with Nano-porous Structure, high quality Opacifiers,  and fibers. Interconnecting pore size comparable to or even less than the mean free path of air molecules at standard atmospheric pressure. It contains opacifiers to reduce the amount of the radiant heat transmitted. The microporous insulation material is inorganic making it is non-combustible and suitable for passive fire protection applications. It is ideal for any high-temperature application and has been used in aerospace, automotive, industrial, and commercial markets where space and weight conservation are critical requirements without compromising the thermal performance.

Microporous insulation is the most efficient way to save energy, space, reduce CO2 emissions, enhance safety, and protect environment. Based on product type, the microporous insulation market is segmented into rigid boards & panels, flexible panels, and others. Other product types include moldable products, machined parts, and pourable products. The flexible panels’ product type is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, in terms of value. This is because flexible panels exhibit excellent dimensional stability and improved mechanical resistance to vibration and impact. They are energy-efficient and can be conveniently handled and transported. 

Based on application, the microporous insulation market is segmented into industrial, energy & power, oil & gas, aerospace & defense, and others. Other applications include automotive and consumer appliances.  The market in the aerospace & defense application segment is projected to register the highest CAGR, in terms of value, between 2018 and 2023. The demand for microporous insulation is increasing in the aerospace & defense application due to increasing demand for lightweight materials, which, in turn, saves the fuel consumed during the operation of an aircraft.

Comparison of Thermal Conductivity(W/m.K) at 600 °C

As compared to conventional insulation materials, such as glass-filled foams, fibers, and metals, microporous insulating materials have a thermal efficiency that is four to five times greater. The superior thermal resistance of microporous insulation shows enormous potential in oil & gas applications, where insulation is of prime importance. Besides excellent thermal performance, microporous insulating materials have significant resistance to flame and extreme weather conditions.
