How is Insulon® different from vacuum insulation?

    You may have seen double-walled bottles, thermoses, or coffee cups, and think that you understand the capabilities of vacuum insulation. However, all vacuum insulation is not created equal. Insulon® is based on vacuum technology, but Insulon® is not your average vacuum insulation. Insulon® is an ultra powerful thermal barrier that uses advanced vacuum technology alongside […]

      Insulon® Demo with Schlieren & Thermal Imaging

        Creating visual demonstrations for thermal insulation can be a challenging process. Heat can be a difficult thing to lay your eyes on! Luckily, we can visualize heat flow using some interesting optical systems. Schlieren imaging illustrates heat flow by observing small changes in the refractivity of air. Thermal imaging locates heat by capturing infrared radiation. […]

        New MLI packages for environments up to 1000°C

          Thermal radiation can easily penetrate the vast majority of insulation materials, even those designed for high temperatures. That’s why our engineers have developed brand new multilayer insulation packages to reduce high temperature radiation heat transfer. Our high density MLI packages include up to 18 layers per inch and are effective in environments up to 1000°C. […]

          Discover the super strong, high temp aerogel alternative

            Aerogel is one of the most effective types of insulation on earth. This exceptionally lightweight, porous, and low density material can be found in applications ranging from commercial products to Mars Rovers. It is a highly effective thermal insulator – but it is also extremely sensitive. Insulon® Technology is effective at a wider range of temperatures […]
