Microporous insulation refers to a composite material found in the form of fibres or compacted powder characterized by an interconnecting pore size which is comparable to the average free path of air molecules present at standard atmospheric pressure. Microporous insulation generally contains opacifiers to reduce the amount of transmission of radiant heat. Microporous insulation material is fully inorganic which makes it non-combustible and suitable for passive fire protection applications. The microporous insulation materials are less thick which makes them suitable to be used in high temperature environments such as in the aerospace industry, low temperature refrigeration and cryogenic applications and other industrial applications. Microporous insulation products and materials are a composition of fibres, silica, and specially developed infrared opacifiers which have the ability to reduce thermal heat transmission process by absorbing and reflecting the radiant heat.
Microporous insulation materials are associated with some key features and benefits which helps to drive the growth of the global microporous insulation market. Some of the core benefits and features are, these products have exceptional thermal efficiency, they are low in weight coupled with high compressive strength, and they have the ability to increase operational efficiency and others.
