THERMAL INSULATION BLANKET PRODUCTS

Fiberfrax, Insulfrax and Isofrax Blanket products are highly efficient and flexible thermally insulating blankets available in a wide range of thickness and density combinations. Common applications include the lagging of hot service pipes for equipment and personnel protection and for energy conservation and heat shielding around diesel engine exhaust systems. These products are also ideally suited to fabrication into turbine insulation mattresses and for the insulation of exhaust ducts on gas turbine propulsion systems and on combined heat and power units.
