Defence Thermal Insulation


Microtherm is pleased to announce the introduction of itâs Aeroguard® flexible insulation panels to the Asian market at the AA 2006 exhibition. Aeroguard® thermal insulation blankets offer the optimum performance from a microporous insulation in a product made to aerospace quality standards.

Key properties include a very low thermal conductivity, even for continuous exposure to 1000° C (1832° F), good resistance to vibration plus the potential for the design of ultra lightweight, ultra thin thermal protection systems.

Typical applications in aerospace include APU insulation, engine and thrust reverser components, heat shields and fire protection, and flight data recorder protection using precision machined insulation components.

Building on their recently signed, commercial collaboration agreement with the Belgian company COMPOSITTRAILER N V, they will jointly present their new light weight high performing insulation sandwich panel technology at Asian Aerospace 2006.

Technical specialists from both companies will be available to discuss their innovative combinations of Acrosoma composite structures sandwiched with Microtherm® high temperature insulation products. The lightweight rigid panels, complete with integral fire protection and thermal protection, are ideally suited to the most demanding vehicular applications.

Standard finish Microtherm flexible insulation panels, available as fast delivery stock items, have widespread application for passive fire protection and general thermal protection. They are clean and simple to install and because of their resistance to vibration damage they can be used under the most arduous conditions.

The Microtherm Group develops and manufactures high temperature microporous insulation and passive fire protection solutions which serve a diverse range of markets including: marine, petrochemical, metal processes, power plants, transportation and consumer. Microtherm operates facilities in Sint-Niklaas - Belgium, Alcoa Tennessee - U.S.A. and Tokyo â Japan.
