Medical Device Insulation

Medical and surgical devices find innovative thermal insulation solutions with Insulon Technology. Insulon vacuum insulation is used to engineer a variety of thermal insulation components for critical applications. All Insulon products are double-walled, vacuum insulated, and typically made with stainless steel. The overall wall thickness of an Insulon product can be as thin as 0.25 mm.

Are you working on medical device engineering or manufacturing? Are you trying to design a more thermally-efficient or safer medical device? Insulon delivers high performance thermal insulation for both cold and hot medical applications including fluid transfer systems and thermal storage systems.
