Heat Gun Safety Guards for Aerospace Manufacturing

Aerospace manufacturers rely on heat guns to produce complex wire harness assemblies. These hot air tools are very powerful, and can pose serious workplace hazards. Insulon Safety Guards provide thermal protection for heat guns and can help to:

  • Reduce the risk of burn injury
  • In the event of a burn, reduce the severity of the burn

Insulation for Fuel Lines and Fluid Transport

Thermal protection can improve performance for aircraft fluid lines including fuel, oil, lubricants, coolants, hydraulics, and air conditioning systems. Our ultra-thin insulation is available in both rigid and flexible tubing and can help to:

  • Guard against exposure to extreme temperatures
  • Prevent temperature fluctuations
Thermal protection for sensors and instruments

Thermal Protection for Instruments and Sensors

Combining our glass-to-metal hermetic seals with Insulon® Technology can provide optimal thermal protection for components and instruments including sensors and actuators. Insulon® can help to:

  • Thermally insulate electrical conduits
  • Reduce heat loss from batteries
Insulation for Bleed Air Systems

Insulation for Bleed Air Systems

Bleed air systems can function more efficiently by reducing heat transfer along the pathways taken by compressed air and gases. Our ultra-thin, space-saving components can help to:

  • Maintain lower skin temperature
  • Minimize temperature drop within bleed air systems
