How Can Insulon® Technology Work For You?
Our present Insulon® portfolio is primarily cylindrical and can-shaped designs. If you require a highly-effective thermal barrier with a minimal footprint, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and custom-design a solution that would increase your application’s thermal performance.
Batteries and Fuel Cells
Temperature can be a major factor in draining batteries and fuel cells of their power, limiting their longevity and efficiency. An Insulon® thermal barrier can combat this issue and improve performance, by making it so specific temperatures can be maintained. Current applications include vehicle batteries, military and commercial drone batteries, hydrogen transport, and a wide range of other fuel cells.
The automotive industry is facing a variety of demands including meeting regulatory requirements while maintaining peak performance, reducing emissions, and improving the efficiency of electric vehicles. An Insulon® thermal barrier provides a solution to many of these challenges.
- By surrounding a catalytic converter with Insulon®, vehicles are able to reach and maintain optimal operating temperatures quicker, thus reducing harmful emissions.
- The addition of an Insulon® barrier to a vehicle battery can allow the elimination of secondary battery heating systems for cold weather charging.
Military and Defense
Thermal imaging technology in military and defense applications is constantly improving making stealth more crucial than ever. Heat radiating from components including munitions, batteries, sound suppressors, and fuel lines is less likely to be detected by thermal imaging when an Insulon® barrier is incorporated.
Insulon® is a solution to some of the issues resulting from high temperature conditions faced in the aerospace industry. Shielding fuel, air and/or water lines on both commercial and military aircraft, protecting sensitive components, and isolating sensor equipment are common applications for Insulon® barriers.
Insulon’s® superior insulating properties and inert materials make it a valuable alternative for countless consumer applications. Insulon® can deliver a thermal barrier that drastically minimizes thermal conduction. Current applications include steam wands on espresso machine that are cool to the touch while delivering hot steam, a heating appliance that can be held without burning, and a medical device that will maintain temperature without refrigeration for several hours. The addition of a small, durable Insulon® barrier can thermally protect your product and/or keep your customers safe.
Insulon’s® manufacturing process creates a sterilized final product, rendering it safe to use in medical applications. With our wide range of thermal protection, Insulon® can be incorporated into applications including medical transport of temperature-sensitive materials such as insulin, heart catheters, laser spectroscopy devices, cryo/steam ablation products and cryogenic storage chambers.
