Cryogel® Z Enables Maximum Use of Space in LNG Projects.

Cryogel Z’s extremely low thermal conductivity enables thinner designs, and is ideal for space- or weight-constrained locations, such as legacy spheres and vessels. It resolves mechanical clashes, shrinks module footprints, and is easy to work with. Plus, Cryogel Z’s sustained performance during construction, transport, and operations makes it suitable for pre-insulation and modular builds.
Pre-Insulated LNG Construction to Bridge the Modular Gap


Cryogel® Z Simplifies LNG Project Logistics by Providing Five Protections in One Insulation.

Cryogel Z’s simplified design and versatility provides 5-in-1 thermal, acoustic, jet-fire, pool fire, and cold splash protection—all in a single system. Plus, you won’t experience material shortages—one roll does it all.
