Microporous Silica Insulation
The MICROSIL microporous silica thermal insulation has low density, which minimizes conductive heat transfer, and nano-pockets that block convection and reflect heat energy back to its source. The insulation is a combination of ultrafine silica powders, specially processed refractory oxides and glass reinforcing agents. Compacted under pressure to form a lightweight yet rigid structure, it offers a maximum insulation value in a minimum amount of space. It exhibits a density of 230 kg/m3 (14.4 pcf) and offers thermal conductivity of 0.038W/mK at 800C.
