PFP Blankets –Pyrogel® XTF

Introduction to Pyrogel® XTF

Pyrogel® XTF is a high-temperature blanket insulation, engineered by incorporating silica aerogel and reinforced with a non-woven high-temperature batting. Its unique properties enable it to be both a passive fire protection (PFP) and thermal insulation blanket suitable for all industries where fire protection and thermal insulation are required simultaneously.

Passive Fire Protection – Pyrogel® XTF

Pyrogel® XTF is commonly selected for its ability to provide improved thermal performance with reduced thickness and excellent passive fire protection properties conforming to UL 1709 testing standards.

Pyrogel® XTF delivers better thermal performance, improved resilience and faster installation time than other competing insulation systems used in industrial fire insulation applications today. Pyrogel®’s hydrophobic nature also minimizes Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) substantially.

Features of Pyrogel® XTF

  • Provides both passive fire protection and thermal insulation
  • Fast installation
  • Easily removed and reinstalled for inspections
  • Provides protection from Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

Key Benefits

EXCELLENT PROTECTION AGAINST JET AND HYDROCARBON POOL FIRES

System provides protection against jet fires for up to 2 hours (UL 1709) and hydrocarbon pool fires for up to 4 hours (ISO 22899).

REDUCED THICKNESS AND PROFILE

Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness.


K-Value Comparison between Aerogel and Other Industrial Insulations

SUPERIOR THERMAL PERFORMANCE

Up to 5 times better thermal performance than competing insulation products.

HYDROPHOBIC YET BREATHABLE

Pyrogel® XTF repels liquid water but allows vapour to pass through thus helping to prevent Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI).

VERSATILE DESIGN

Unlike rigid pre-forms such as pipe cover or board, the same Pyrogel® XTF blanket can be kitted to fit any shape or design.

LESS TIME AND LABOUR TO INSTALL

Could easily be cut just by using a pair of scissors and be fitted to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access.

PHYSICALLY ROBUST AND IMPACT RESISTANT

Soft and flexible but with excellent springback, Pyrogel® XTF recovers its thermal performance even after compression.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE

Landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fibre.
