The value of microporous insulation from Armil CFS is two-fold. First, our microporous insulation is a VERY efficient insulating material for high-temperature furnaces, kilns and oven linings. Indeed, microporous insulation is the most efficient insulating material we feature on our website. Secondly, due to the “micro porous” nature of this insulating material, a thinner layer or amount can be used than with ordinary insulation made from ceramic fiber. Used in high-heat or tight and compact scenarios, microporous insulation boards are basically an insulating powder that has been compressed into a rigorous and efficient thermal refractory material for smaller spaces.

DynaGuard microporous core materials are composed of a combination of fumed silica, reinforcing fibers, and special opacifiers to minimize transmission of infrared radiation. Armil CFS offers a variety of microporous insulations for a large range of high temperature industrial and commercial applications.

More on Microporous Insulation Boards

Each DynaGuard insulating board is a rigid, 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 Board systems are also specially formulated to minimize heat transfer via conduction, convection and radiation through the material by use of the following:

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

The DynaGuard™ Board 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. In addition to the microporous core, DynaGuard Board systems are also supplied standard encased in a shrink-wrap shell. This shell provides additional minimization of dusting from the material during transportation and handling, adds a degree of moisture resistance during installation, and allows for close fitting or butt-jointing of multiple DynaGuard Board parts with only minimal spacing between the materials.

DynaGuard insulating boards are supplied standard at 18 lbs/ft3 density, 18″x 24″, and in thicknesses of 1/2″ to 1-1/2.” Other densities, sizes, and thicknesses are available upon request.

DynaGuard Board Insulation Systems Advantages

Lowest Thermal Conductivity

Because DynaGuard Board 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 Board 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 insulating board 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.

Easy Fabrication

Shapes can be fabricated in the field by various cutting methods, but Armil CFS also provides a virtually limitless range of custom pre-fabricated and intricate shapes upon request.
