Pyrogel® XTE

Flexible Insulation for High-Temperature Applications

Pyrogel XTE 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 XTE is used for a wide range of industrial applications encompassing project and maintenance work in refineries, petrochemical, and gas processing plants. Pyrogel XTE high-temperature insulation is versatile, efficient, durable, and more productive to install. Pyrogel XTE has demonstrated time-saving advantages in turnarounds across a range of applications, with its greatest benefit seen in vessels and large bore piping. 

Pyrogel XTE is extremely hydrophobic and breathable. By keeping the underlying asset drier for longer. Pyrogel XTE offers world-class leading CUI (corrosion under insulation) defense.

Pyrogel XTE 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. Maximize process infrastructure and resolve mechanical clashes 

Less Time and Labor to Install
Pyrogel insulation is easily cut and conformed to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access. Pyrogel XTE supports more insulation coverage per man hour than traditional forms of insulation.

Reusable - Lower Lifetime Costs
Pyrogel XTE 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 XTE 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

Logistics Savings - Time and Money 
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 insulation

Simplified Inventory
Unlike rigid pre-forms such as pipe cover or board, the same Pyrogel® XTE blanket can be kitted to fit any shape or design. Reduce the time and effort spent managing large numbers of SKU's. Pyrogel XTE offers unrivaled versatility.

Hydrophobic Yet Breathable
Pyrogel® XTE repels liquid water but allows vapor to escape, there by keeping pipe and equipment drier for longer. Pyrogel XTE supports unrivaled CUI defense, better process stability, and extends the life of your assets.

Environmentally Safe
Aspen Aerogel’s high-temperature insulation is landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content
