Pyrogel® XTE and Pyrogel® HPS are the most effective high temperature insulation material in the industry. Its low thermal conductivity of any known solid which makes Pyrogel® the leader for industrial and marine insulation. Pyrogel®XTE is available in 5mm & 10mm blankets and Pyrogel® HPS is available in 10mm blankets.
Their distinctive features are as follows:

Pyrogel® XTE and Pyrogel® HPS are ideal for insulating pipes, vessels, tanks, and equipment in a variety of industries. It is a high performing material that is durable to wear, tear and extreme weather conditions, thus it is widely accepted by many industries that include:

**Pony Rolls are cut from ASTM C1728 compliant material
The 850ft2 Bulk Rolls are suitable for large projects or fabrication works. The 80ft2 Pony Rolls are recommended for smaller projects.
Up to five times better high-thermal performance than competing insulation products.
Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness of other insulation. Extremely useful for constrained spaces.
Pyrogel® repels liquid water but allows vapor to escape, there by keeping pipe and equipment drier for longer. Pyrogel supports unrivaled CUI defense, better process stability, and extends the life of your assets.
Pyrogel® is easily removed for inspection and maintenance and can be reused in original service, reducing downtime and eliminating the need to purchase replacement insulation at regular maintenance cycles.
Pyrogel® insulation is easily cut and shaped to complex equipment, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access.
Reduced material volume, high packing density, and low scrap rates reduces shipping volumes.
Unlike rigid pre-forms such as pipe cover or board, the same Pyrogel® blanket can be kitted to fit any shape or design.
Aspen Aerogel’s high-temperature insulation is landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content.
