Cabot launches Aeroclad blanket for high temperature applications

February 8, 2013

Cabot Corporation has developed the Aeroclad blanket, a flexible high-temperature insulation material formed by integrating Cabot’s silica aerogel within a nonwoven, inorganic fiber batting. 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 corrosion-under-insulation (CUI) characteristics, and without dust.

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

“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,” says Matthew Greenfield, commercial manager, energy and industrial, Cabot Aerogel.
