Specialized vacuum insulation for medical and surgical devices

Insulon Vacuum Insulation

Insulon vacuum insulation is used to engineer innovative solutions for medical and surgical applications including thermal ablation therapies (cryo- and steam ablation), transporting temperature-sensitive medication, cryogenic storage of biological materials, and protecting sensors from high temperatures in autoclaves.

Medical and surgical applications typically have strict material requirements that can be difficult to achieve with conventional insulation materials. In addition, these critical applications often require a high level of insulation performance while consuming minimal design space. Constructed from stainless steel in ultra-thin form factors, Insulon vacuum insulation is uniquely suited to medical and surgical applications.
