Silica aerogel insulation blankets are nano-silica aerogel as the main material, through a special process with glass fiber cotton or pre-oxidized fiber mat composite made of flexible insulation blankets. It is characterized by low thermal conductivity, a certain tensile and compressive strength, ease of application of insulation construction, a new type of insulation material.
Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets are currently the lowest solid thermal insulation materials in the temperature range of about 400 ° C (the thermal conductivity in the high temperature range of 400-1000 ° C is much higher than that of the micro thermal insulation).
Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets has the characteristics of softness, easy cutting, low density, inorganic fireproofing, overall hydrophobicity and green environmental protection. It can replace the traditional flexible such as glass fiber products, asbestos insulation felt and silicate fiber products, which are not environmentally friendly and have poor thermal insulation properties Insulation Materials.
Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets are mainly used in industrial pipes, storage tanks, industrial furnaces, power plants, life-saving tanks, warship bulkheads, motor vehicles, direct buried pipelines, injection molding machines, detachable insulation covers, high temperature steam pipes for heavy oil production, transportation , Household appliances, steel, non-ferrous metals, glass and other areas of thermal insulation.
Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets' Advantages
1, Excellent thermal insulation effect. The thermal insulation of Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets is 2-5 times that of traditional insulation materials, and the theoretical service life according to Arrhenius experiment is 20 years. Almost the same life with buildings.
2, Reduce the insulation thickness. Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets achieve the same thermal insulation and are only a fraction of the thickness of traditional materials. Heat loss after insulation, space utilization. And at high temperatures, the above performance advantages more pronounced.
3, Hydrophobic and fire resistance. Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets is absolutely hydrophobic, which can effectively prevent moisture from entering the pipe and equipment. At the same time with the building A1-level fire performance, and aerogel unique three-dimensional network structure to avoid the use of other insulation materials in the long-term high temperature sintering deformation, settlement and other insulation effect decreased significantly.
4, construction convenience. Silica Aerogel Insulation blankets light, easy to cut, sewn to adapt to a variety of different shapes of pipe, equipment insulation, and the installation of less time and manpower.
5, save shipping costs. Smaller package volume and lighter weight can greatly reduce the transportation costs of insulation materials.
