MICROTHERM® PANEL-1000R

ADVANTAGES

  • Custom made
  • Extremely low thermal conductivity
  • High thermal stability
  • Available in different temperature grades, including a hydrophobic version
  • Non combustible
  • Clean & easy to handle

Rigid panels

The MICROTHERM® PANEL range of products are custom made microporous insulation panels with very good thermal properties. The panels are produced in a glass cloth outer envelope, making them clean and easy to handle. The formulation is an opacified blend of filament reinforced pyrogenic silica (alumina for 1200 grade).

MICROTHERM® PANEL-1000R is a lightweight, custom made insulation panel.

A material safety data sheet for this product is available on request from your national Promat HPI company.

Working & processing
< #Back#
MICROTHERM® PANEL can be shaped easily with a simple cutter (see handling and shaping techniques in our catalogue on microporous insulation). The panels can be fixed in place with glue or by mechanical means such as anchors, pins and clips. They can also be fitted between the anchors.

Typical applications
< #Back#
Microporous insulation offers an extremely low thermal conductivity, close to the lowest theoretically possible at high temperatures. Microporous materials are the preferred choice when a large temperature reduction is required within a limited space, or when strict heat loss or surface temperature requirements are specified.

  • Back-up insulation in industrial furnaces
  • Aluminium industry (launders, holding furnace, ...)
  • Glass & ceramics industry
  • Petrochemical industry (cracking furnace, hydrogen reformer, ...)
  • Annealing & galvanizing lines
  • Night storage heaters
