What is Pyrogel insulation?
Pyrogel XTE is a flexible, high-performance, aerogel blanket insulation designed for use in industrial applications. Pyrogel XTE is engineered to deliver superior thermal performance while offering excellent protection against corrosion under insulation (CUI).
What is an aerogel material?
Aerogels are among the lightest solid materials known to man. They are created by combining a polymer with a solvent to form a gel, and then removing the liquid from the gel and replacing it with air. Aerogels are extremely porous and very low in density.
Is aerogel insulation breathable?
Aerogel GT is a breathable insulation board 10mm thick that utilizes air-filled pores to achieve up to a 60% reduction in heat loss. The clever board can be used in window reveals and to combat thermal bridging in a range of applications, including roof spaces, stairwells and under floors.
Is aerogel and Pyrogel the same thing?
Pyrogel® is a patented nanotech technology form of silica aerogel insulation with a non-woven, glass-fibre batting to strengthen the material.
What is Pyrogel made of?
Pyrogel material is a high temperature insulation blanket, formed of nano-porous silica aerogel and re-inforced with a non-woven carbon- and glassfibre batting. Silica aerogel possess the lowest thermal conductivity of any known solid material. Pyrogel can be used for insulating curved and complex surfaces.
How do you install aerogel insulation?
Simply slide your gloved hands over the material and gently tension it toward the joint. If you find that you’ve come up short on a butt joint, check to make sure you haven’t reversed the direction of the aerogel material. To do this, just flip the piece of insulation you’re working with, allowing it to fit.
Can you breathe through aerogel?
Most of the particulate released during aerogel handling was respirable. This means the particles can be inhaled deep into the lungs. Many participants who handled aerogel insulation reported upper respiratory tract irritation, or very dry or chapped skin.
What is spacetherm multi?
Spacetherm Multi is a high-performance laminate specifically designed to be laid directly onto existing floors & walls. Spacetherm Multi consists of Spacetherm Aerogel insulation blanket bonded to a 6mm Magnesium Oxide Board.

What is spacetherm wl?
Spacetherm WL consists of 10mm Spacetherm aerogel insulation blanket bonded to 3mm Magnesium Oxide Board (MgO), for use in applications where improved thermal performance is required with limited space.
What is spacetherm wallboard made of?
It consists of Spacetherm Aerogel insulation blanket bonded to plasterboard, and is ideal for use in applications where low U-values are required but space is at a premium. Spacetherm Wallboard is supplied with foil faced plasterboard as standard to reduce condensation.
What is a multispacetherm blanket?
Spacetherm Multi consists of Spacetherm Aerogel insulation blanket bonded to a 6mm Magnesium Oxide Board. Spacetherm Aerogel blanket is available in various thickness from 5mm to 40mm (in multiples of 5). For other thicknesses, or for U-value calculations for your project, please contact Proctor Technical services.
