Flexible Insulation for Hot Work
Pyrogel® XT-E is the most effective high-temperature insulation material in the industrial market, typically 2-5 times thinner than other widely used insulation products. It is our easiest product ever to handle, store, and install. Pyrogel® XT-E offers the same industry-leading thermal performance as Pyrogel® XT, with standard roll sizes and a product form that dramatically reduces handling dust and simplifies installation and clean-up.
Pyrogel® XT-E is used for a wide range of industrial applications including refineries, petrochemical, and gas processing. Pyrogel® XT-E high-temperature insulation is efficient, durable, and more productive to install. Its water resistance offers a level of protection against corrosion under insulation (CUI).
Pyrogel® XT-E delivers industry-leading high thermal performance in a flexible, environmentally safe, and easy-to-use industrial insulation product.

ADVANTAGES OF PYROGEL® INSULATION
Superior Thermal Performance
Up to five times better high-thermal performance than competing insulation products
Reduced Thickness and Profile
Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness
Less Time and Labor to Install
Pyrogel® insulation is easily cut and conformed to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access
Pyrogel XT-E 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
Physically Robust and Impact Resistant
Soft and flexible but with excellent spring back, Pyrogel XT-E recovers its thermal performance even after compression events as high as 100 psi, protecting critical assets from compromise due to tool strikes, footfalls, lifting, and transportation
Shipping and Warehousing Savings
Reduced material volume, high packing density, and low scrap rates can reduce shipping volumes by a factor of five or more compared to rigid, pre-formed high-temperature insulations
Unlike rigid pre-forms such as pipe cover or board, the same Pyrogel® XT-E blanket can be kitted to fit any shape or design
Hydrophobic Yet Breathable
Pyrogel® XT-E repels liquid water but allows vapor to pass through, helping to prevent corrosion under insulation
Aspen Aerogel’s high-temperature insulation is landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content
