A comparison of Aerogel Insulation and other insulation materials demonstrates why Aerogel material has been fast gaining a favourable reputation as the material of choice for industrial insulation and is rapidly gaining market share. This article describes briefly the key differences between Aerogel type insulation and conventional insulation.
Below we discuss in a bit more detail the benefits, limitations and properties of Aerogel insulation and other insulation materials to help users select the appropriate insulation materials for their requirements.
Aerogel is designed to withstand temperatures up to 650 ⁰C, therefor when insulating equipment with temperatures above 650 ⁰C it is recommended to use other suitable insulation products.
