By employing a range of materials Morgan Advanced Materials can provide heat shields and microporous insulation in a wide variety of demanding environments across different industries and sectors.

Our heat shields and microporous insulation are used frequently within mobile applications and are often incorporated into shipping, aeronautical and automotive designs.

Depending on the specific application, our material engineers can develop and implement a high performance solution that meets your requirements. This is done by taking the unique properties of ceramics to produce heat shields and microporous insulation that is highly adept in extreme environments, whilst retaining its lightweight and robust characteristics.

Having worked extensively with shipping, aerospace and automotive industries in both commercial and defence markets, we are ideally placed to provide you with heat shields and microporous insulation that is on budget, without sacrificing performance.

Common insulation materials used in our heat shields:

  • Glass fibre
  • Silica fibre
  • Microporous insulation

Common materials used for encapsulation:

  • Austenitic and ferritic stainless steel
  • Inconel
  • Titanium

Shell Technology

Designed to follow the shape of your equipment, our lightweight Shell Technology provides an fitted solution to your thermal protection needs. Our Shell Technology is made using Superwool® Plus insulating fibre, FireMaster® fibre, silica, glass fibre or microporous insulation material completely encapsulated in stainless steel and custom-shaped to fit your application. This ensures the possibility for the customer to manage the final assembly on site. Shell Technology is made of corrugated SS in a thickness from 0.05 to 0.3 mm.

Ideal where space is at a premium, Shell Technology is easy to fit, and easy to remove for maintenance or other reasons for applications including:

  • Aerospace: thrust reverser
  • Automotive: exhaust catalyst
  • Passenger vehicles: exhaust manifold
  • Off-Road vehicles: turbocharged
  • Marine and Power Generation: exhaust manifold

Our heat shields, made from our shell technology, offer the following benefits to our customers:

  • Fitted, lightweight solution
  • Effective lifetime insulation
  • Easy to fit and to remove

Integrated Technology Heat Shields

For the insulation of large or complex equipment, our integrated technology solutions are custom designed. Our integrated technology is made using Superwool Plus insulating fibre, FireMaster fibre, silica, glass fibre or microporous material, completely encapsulated in stainless steel and custom-shaped to fit your application requirements. This ensures that the assembly is made with the part provided by the customer.

Integrated technology is made of corrugated SS in a thickness from 0.05 to 0.3 mm and provides excellent lifetime insulation for applications including:

  • Aerospace: helicopter turbine
  • Automotive: exhaust catalyst
  • Passenger vehicles: exhaust manifold
  • Marine and Power Generation: exhaust manifold

Flexible Technology Heat Shields

Our flexible technology provides an effective and versatile solution for thermal protection in a wide range of industrial and other applications.

Made from silica or glass fibre encased in silicone and stainless steel fabric, our flexible technology offers heat shielding in continuous operating temperatures up to 600°C (1112°F). A fully flexible jacket, it is lightweight and easy to fit, and to remove if necessary (even in a restricted space).

Our flexible technology solutions are suitable for a wide range of applications including:

  • Automotive: exhaust manifold
  • Passenger vehicles: exhaust manifold
  • Marine and Power generation: exhaust manifold
  • Oil and Gas: valves and actuators

Rigid Box Technology Heat Shields

Our rigid box technology offers effective thermal and fire protection for all types of equipment, in an easy-to-use, SOLAS-approved and jet and hydrocarbon fire approved system.

Rigid box enclosures are custom-built to suit each application using FireMaster Marine Plus blanket or silica or glass fibre insulation material which is completely encapsulated in austenitic or ferritic stainless steel at our advanced manufacturing facility. Rigid box technology is made of SS in a thickness from 1 to 5 mm.

Our rigid box technology provides customers with the following benefits:

  • SOLAS approved, lifetime insulation
  • Jet and hydrocarbon fire approved
  • Easy to fit and to remove
  • No contact with insulation material
  • No tooling required
