Cryogel® Z

Flexible Industrial and Commercial Insulation for Sub-Ambient and Cryogenic Applications

Cryogel® Z flexible aerogel blanket insulation is engineered to deliver maximum thermal protection with minimal weight and thickness. Unmatched in sub-ambient, cold cycling and cryogenic applications. Cryogel Z incorporates an integral vapor retarder with zero water vapor permeance to ensure maximum asset protection.

Cryogel Z’s extremely low thermal conductivity minimizes heat gain and liquid boil-off. Cryogel Z remains flexible, even at cryogenic temperatures, eliminating the need for complex, costly contraction joints thereby simplifying and speeding installation. Its durable format withstands mechanical abuse, and provides continued protection throughout the life of the asset. Cryogel Z is ideal for both maintenance work and new builds, supporting faster and safer installations with sustained long term performance.

In addition to being the first choice in cold conservation, Cryogel Z offers acoustic attenuation and protections against cold splash, pool fire, and jet fire. The combination of these safeguards make Cryogel Z ideal for onshore, offshore and marine applications.
