Print Share

Jan 14, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Cabot Corp. has developed the Aeroclad blanket, a high-temperature insulation material formed by integrating Cabot's silica aerogel within a non-woven, inorganic fiber batting.

According to a release, the Aeroclad blanket delivers a dust free, flexible wrap that takes advantage of the thermal insulation performance and hydrophobic nature of aerogel. Cabot has created this new aerogel blanket product with exceptional corrosion-under-insulation (CUI) characteristics, and without dust, to significantly outperform the currently available competing products.

Cabot's Aeroclad blanket can be field modified and installed for use in a range of industrial applications such as pipelines, refineries, steam lines, tanks and other equipment, the Company said.

"The Cabot Aeroclad blanket delivers the unparalleled performance and benefits of an aerogel product while addressing a clear market need for dust free and superior corrosion performance," said Matthew Greenfield, commercial manager, Energy and Industrial, Cabot Aerogel. "Cabot has built a reputation in the industry for its unmatched customer service both in the field and in insulation product design to address specific application needs. We are actively working with several partners to commercialize this product to meet the evolving requirements and demands of the global industry."
