MICROTHERM® FLOPPY

ADVANTAGES

  • Custom made & very flexible
  • Extremely low thermal conductivity
  • Non combustible
  • Homogeneous thermal performance - unaffected by thermal variations
  • Clean & easy to install
  • Environmentally friendly

Flexible Panels

MICROTHERM® FLOPPY is a flexible, low density microporous insulation panel with an elasticated outer envelope. It is clean, easy to handle & fast to install. The formulation is an opacified blend of filament reinforced pyrogenic silica.

MICROTHERM® FLOPPY panels are custom made & offer great thermal performance in pipe-in-pipe insulation systems.

Working & processing
< #Back#
MICROTHERM® FLOPPY is 100% custom made. If some cutting would be required, shaping can be done easily with a simple cutter (the procedure can be found in our handbook on microporous insulation). The panels can be fixed in place with glue or by mechanical means.

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:

  • Aircraft structural fire protection
  • 3D geometries
  • Filler material in heat shields
