Microporous Insulation

Thermal Ceramics is one of the world leading suppliers of microporous high performance insulation materials. With Min-K®, WDS®, BTU™ and VACUPOR® we offer a broad portfolio of innovative products, which are among the best insulation materials currently available in the thermal management and fire protection marketplace.

With our custom-made high-performance insulating materials, we help to save energy and offer solutions that create more space due to low thickness for use in the most demanding high temperature environments in aerospace and industrial applications and low temperature cryogenic and refrigeration applications. 

Our microporous insulation product solutions are marketed as:

  • Min-K for Aerospace applications
  • WDS and BTU for industrial, transportation, and consumer applications
  • Vacupor and Vacuspeed for low temperature applications in transportation and building and construction 

Our microporous product offering features traditional bag process and in 2014 when Morgan and German based Porextherm® merged, we acquired our next generation, direct press process technology, WDS. The WDS technology is a highly efficient manufacturing process producing custom engineered solutions for a customer’s specific application needs. Our Min-K materials are AS 9100 certified and our manufacturing locations hold ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.

Microporous products are a composition of silica, fibres, and specially developed infrared opacifiers which reduce thermal transport processes by absorption and reflection of radiant heat. 

Key features and benefits of microporous products are: 

  • Exceptional thermal efficiency
  • Low weight with high compressive strength
  • Increases operational volumes 

Our microporous insulation products for are used to protect equipment, conserve energy and improve process performance in some of the most demanding high temperature industrial and aerospace environments in the world. Typical applications include: 

  • Ladle lining solutions for metals production
  • Heat shields in aerospace
  • Furnace lining back-up insulation
  • Process piping insulation 

We can help you to improve the thermal efficiency and integrity of your systems. We have extensive applications experience and can work with you to engineer the optimum thermal management solution for your application. For more information and to discuss you requirements contact us.
