Imagine a quilted blanketing material with “pockets” filled with microporous insulation and you have the basic concept of our flexible microporous insulation solution – a flexible “shell” of thermal-resistant cloth that houses this compact insulating material for use in high-heat or compact scenarios requiring less space usage for insulation – often for use as pipe or duct insulation since it can be easily wrapped around objects for heat protection.

DynaGuard microporous materials available from Armil CFS are comprised of a combination of fumed silica, reinforcing fibers, and special opacifiers to minimize transmission of infrared radiation. These insulating materials possess extremely low thermal conductivities for high-heat scenarios in industrial and manufacturing settings. Flexible microporous insulation offers the additional advantage of very easy-to-install adaptability.

More on Microporous Insulation

DynaGuard Flexible Insulation Systems represent one of Armil CFS many microporous products for primary use in industrial and commercial applications. Each DynaGuard Flexible system is a flexible, textile-encased, comparatively dense material with high compression resistance and exceptional strength, and its superior thermal performance allows the maximum amount of thermal protection to be provided within minimum space and weight requirements.

DynaGuard Flexible insulation systems are also specially formulated to minimize heat transfer via conduction, convection and radiation through the material by use of the following:

  • Microporous structure: the microporous structure of the DynaGuard Flexible system inherently minimizes the possibility for air current convection through the material, as void spaces too small forair currents to exist form between the core material components.
  • Ceramic powders with intrinsically low thermal conductivity: the microporous core materials used in the manufacture of DynaGuard Flexible systems possess a thermal conductivity even lower than that of still air, and minimize the solid conduction of energy through the material.
  • Special opacifiers: the introduction of special opacifiers into the DynaGuard Flexible insulation formulation ensures that the transmission of infrared radiation through the material is kept to the lowest possible levels.

The DynaGuard Flexible microporous core material is a 1,800ºF continuous-use formulation, and is compressed into a uniform thickness and density to ensure the proper distribution of the core material. After compression, the material is quilted on 1″ square centers with high-temperature thread in order to provide both flexibility and greater vibration resistance for the material. In addition to the microporous core, DynaGuard Flexible systems are supplied encased in a high-temperature textile shell. This shell provides additional structure, strength, ease of handling and installation, and consistent distribution of the core material, and may also be used to increase the overall composite temperature use limit of the assembly as specified by individual customer needs.

DynaGuard Flexible insulation systems are supplied standard at 16 lbs/ft3 density, 36″x 36,” in thicknesses of 1/8″ to 1/2,” and with a fiberglass textile shell (1,000ºF use limit). Other densities, sizes, thicknesses and cloth facings are available upon request.

DynaGuard Flexible Insulation Systems Advantages

Lowest Thermal Conductivity

Because DynaGuard Flexible systems inherently possess a thermal conductivity lower than that of still air, even at elevated temperatures, they are ideal in environments where materials with low thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and heat storage are necessary.

Space and Weight Savings

Because smaller amounts of DynaGuard Flexible insulation are needed for thermal management, it is an ideal material for industrial and commercial applications where considerable space and/or weight savings are valuable in increasing capacity or efficiency without sacrificing the thermal performance of the system.

High Temperature Capability

DynaGuard Flexible insulation systems can be manufactured to meet continuous high-temperature environments up to 1,800ºF, but are also capable of performing in intermittent exposure to 2,000ºF temperatures.
