Armacell Launches Dual-Temperature and Cryogenic Aerogel Insulation Blanket
Luxembourg, 3 August 2020 – Armacell, a global leader in energy efficiency, announced today the launch of ArmaGel DT, a next generation flexible aerogel blanket for dual-temperature and cryogenic applications.
- ArmaGel™ DT aerogel insulation blanket with integrated vapour barrier
- Dual-temperature and cryogenic temperatures down to -180 ⁰C (-292 ⁰F)
- Available in 5, 10, 15, 20 mm thicknesses
Considered one of the best performing insulation materials available today, Armacell’s latest innovation offers exceptionally low thermal conductivity, superior thermal performance and a reduction in insulation thicknesses compared to competing insulation products. It does not shrink at cryogenic temperatures bringing the simplicity and benefits of hot service insulation to cryogenic service temperatures. Plus, its hydrophobicity and flexibility can provide protection against corrosion under insulation extending asset lifetime.
Additionally, ArmaGel DT provides the customer with more choice and faster installation, as this product introduces 5, 10, 15, and 20 mm thicknesses of aerogel blankets to the market. Effective insulation is a key factor in tackling climate change, as it is one of the simplest, fastest and most costeffective means of improving energy efficiency. ArmaGel’s superior thermal performance makes it one of the most effective insulation products available to the market today.
Alessandro Argelli, Director Global Energy, comments,
The introduction of ArmaGel DT enables us to deliver a complete portfolio of cryogenic, dual-temperature and high-temperature aerogel insulation blanket. In combination with ArmaGel HT, we have extended our temperature capabilities from -180 ⁰C to +650 ⁰C.
