ArmaGel HT Aerogel Insulation Webinar
ArmaGel HT aerogel insulation product by Armacell was the feature of today’s webinar hosted by Distribution International. I noticed the open invitation a few weeks back while scrolling my LinkedIn news feed and took the opportunity to learn more about this new product.
ArmaGel HT Basics
I learned that ArmaGel HT is:
- Offered in 5mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm thicknesses
- Hydrophobic like other aerogel products on the market
- Stocked by Distribution International in certain markets
The Armacell team discussed test results of their product which included:
- Cyclical testing which observed no evidence of thermal shift
- Passes standard for aerogel insulation ASTM C1728, Type III-1-A
- Superior thermal conductivity (per ASTM C1728) vs. competitive aerogel blanket in the high end (800°F-1200°F)
- Passing the requirement of ASTM C871 test for leachable ions.
- Superior rust protection rating than competitive aerogel and other high temp insulations when tested in accordance to ISO 10289.
Features and Benefits
Key features and benefits that Armacell is promoting in ArmaGel HT:
- Uniquely flexible aerogel insulation for a full range of sizes that leaves no creases at the pipe surface
- Ability to cut two sections of material in lieu of pre-fabricated “lobster tail” sections for elbows
- The ability to pair ArmaGel HT with an outer layer of ArmaFlex closed cell elastomeric insulation
As an administrator for Insulpedia, I write to share information or industry news rather than give reviews or opinions. I will say though, that Armacell appears to have done their homework. I have experience selling to the high temperature market where aerogel products are found. Armacell seems to have completed all of the pertinent testing they will likely need to establish themselves in the aerogel arena.
