Advanced Thermal Insulation | High Temperature Insulation | Insulon® Technology

Ultra thin, high performance insulation components

If traditional thermal insulation materials are proving insufficient or ineffective, Insulon® may be able to help.

We custom design Insulon® thermal barriers to enhance your application’s overall thermal performance. Our goal is to maximize insulation while consuming the minimal amount of space. Insulon® is ideal for cylindrical geometries and can be manufactured into tubes, pipes, cans, containers, and flasks.

​Our engineers work with you to develop a design that fulfills both thermal and geometric requirements, custom building and testing prototypes at our research & development facility. When it’s time for the next step, our manufacturing team puts together semi- or fully-automated cells for rapid, high volume production.

​The end result? An enhanced thermal system for more effective and efficient performance. Contact us today to find out what Insulon® can do for your application.

-270°C to +1000°C

Ultra thin insulation

Insulation thickness is of paramount importance to space-constrained applications. Our parts are so thin, they can be used to insulate needles. With overall wall thickness as low as 0.25mm, our insulation components deliver thermal solutions in a compact package. Our low profile design can help your product save space, maintain a sleek profile, and reduce overall packaging requirements — without sacrificing thermal performance.

High thermal performance

Insulon® technology drastically reduces heat transfer to deliver high performance insulation. All Insulon® parts reduce heat flow due to thermal conduction and convection — for the most demanding applications, our engineers introduce elements to reduce radiation heat transfer. Our insulation components help you concentrate thermal energy where you want it, often resulting in reduced energy demands and consumption.

High mechanical strength

Built with high strength materials including stainless steel and other metals, Insulon® is ideal for challenging physical environments. Every Insulon® part delivers ultra high insulation performance, and if you need an insulation component with specific mechanical properties, we can adjust for that as well. High pressure environment? No problem. Dealing with vibration? We can help. Our robust components can be built to withstand a variety of mechanical stresses.

Custom design

We want your product stand out against the competition. Our goal is to deliver precise thermal enhancements that improve the overall performance of your product. Our engineers take a holistic approach to design, considering everything from component level parameters to system level parameters. Every feature of an Insulon® part is custom designed to your specifications — down to the very last millimeter.

Simplified assembly

With most conventional insulation materials, you have to do the installation yourself. This might mean spraying foam, clamping down blankets, or cutting, wrapping, and taping pyrogel in hard-to-reach places. These tedious installation processes can slow down your manufacturing process, costing you time and money. Insulon® offers an alternative insulation product — delivered as a preformed component built to spec, Insulon® is ready to be seamlessly integrated into your assembly.

Proprietary technology

No one else uses our patented technology found in every Insulon® part. From our advanced vacuum technology to our high density, high temperature multilayer insulation, all of our proprietary technology is designed in-house — and nowhere else. Our engineers are constantly making advancements in thermal technology, and we take pride in delivering one-of-a-kind solutions to each and every customer.

Our goal is to maximize thermal insulation performance while consuming minimal space.

Our engineers work with you to custom design Insulon® to suit your application’s unique needs. The majority of Insulon® parts are built with stainless steel; alternative materials include Inconel and other alloys.

Applications

Insulon® is used across a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, batteries/fuel cells, consumer goods, medical and military. Applications range from ultra thin sheaths for hypodermic needles to everyday handheld devices. Every part features the same cutting-edge thermal insulation technology, expertly customized to fit your application’s needs.

High Performance Insulation

Insulon® thermal barriers consistently achieve hundreds of degrees temperature difference between the outer and inner surfaces. One feature that makes Insulon® special is its ability to perform in high temperature and high pressure environments. Rugged metal design makes our insulated components durable and long lasting.

How does it work?

Insulon® Technology employs a deep vacuum space between the walls of two coaxial structures to effectively eliminate convective heat transfer. Our proprietary manufacturing process allows our vacuum spaces to be exceptionally thin and effective at a wide range of temperatures (up to 1000°C).

If desired, additional design elements may be included to reduce heat transfer due to radiation.
