Vacupor (low heat insulation) / WDS (high thermal insulation)
• VACUPOR® - The Innovative Solution For High - Performance Insulation
When suitable insulation comes down to a question of millimeters.
Vacupor® is easy to use and, due to the integrated fiber-filaments, which support the three-dimensional fumed-silica structure, becomes pressure resistant and self supporting. Therefore, additional sheathing to improve mechanical stability is usually not required. Of course, we are able to offer Vacupor®, according to your particular insulation problem, in various shapes and sizes and we are continually developing further flexible applications for this outstanding insulation material.
Particularly in response to changes in laws and regulations, but also for energy-saving reasons, Vacupor® is gaining acceptance in many industrial applications, such as refrigeration appliances, building insulation, etc., with increasing frequency replacing insulation materials that are less costly, but also less efficient.
Vacupor® combines the properties of a microporous insulation material with the advantages of vacuum insulation technology. In this way, an extremely low thermal conductivity of 5 mW/mK is achieved. Vacupor® can be used in the temperature range between -50 °C and 120 °C.
The core material is produced without any emissions, is not flammable and usually does not contain any organic components which may set free harmful decomposition products when exposed to heat. Vacupor® can be recycled and, according to industrial hygiene experts, does not pose any health hazard. The silicate support filaments used for mechanical reinforcement are also not absorbable by the lungs, as defined by the WHO.
This makes Vacupor® an ideal insulation material from every point of view.
• WDS® - Cool Design Solutions In The High-Temperature Range
Start to redefine the term “hot“ in your applications.
This considerably improves the overall energy balance. Porextherm products also allow thermal insulation designs with the lowest possible thicknesses in furnace design, drastically increasing the usable volume and reducing the required energy due to its outstanding thermal retention capacity.
In the modern consumer area, many households are already equipped with glass-ceramic cooking ranges. The radiating heating elements positioned immediately below the cooking surface contain Porextherm insulating materials used for its outstanding mechanical and thermal characteristics. In electrical thermal storage heaters, Porextherm products promote the optimal exploitation of the storage effect and, in addition, contribute to the solution of space problems.
Therefore today, Porextherm has gained a solid reputation in a wide variety of industrial branches requiring efficient thermal insulation for the improvement of their products. Porextherm also offers innovative insulation systems for the automotive and aviation industry, for example, for the thermal management of exhaust systems and the fire protection insulation in aircraft engines. Another remarkable area of application is the insulation of offshore oil pipelines.
The right shape can be important in thermal insulation
Porextherm is not limited to a certain area of application. On the contrary, we have developed a broad range of different application-specific products in order to meet the demands of a wide variety of branches. In these efforts, thermal insulation in products with complex shapes are playing an increasingly important role. Here, our specially shaped components are the ideal solution when it comes to efficient thermal insulation in the tightest spaces and under the most difficult conditions.
