Solving Industrial Insulation’s Toughest Challenges with Pyrogel and Cryogel

In the twenty years since launch, Aspen Aerogels’ insulation technology has been adopted globally by the Oil & Gas community. The combination of Pyrogel and Cryogel’s unique product engineering, format, and versatility have revealed a range of benefits for project, maintenance, and turnaround work. This webinar will highlight examples of how Cryogel and Pyrogel have been used to de-risk schedules and solve some of industrial insulation’s toughest challenges. The webinar will be of interest to engineers and contractors working in the hydrocarbon processing industries.

Aspen Aerogels Thermal and Passive Fire Protection Insulation Solutions


Pyrogel® high-temperature insulation has demonstrated time-saving advantages in turnarounds across a range of applications, with its greatest benefit seen in vessels and large bore piping. Pyrogel is extremely hydrophobic and breathable. By keeping the underlying asset drier for longer, Pyrogel offers world-class leading CUI (corrosion under insulation) defense.

CryogelCryogel® Z is unmatched in sub-ambient, cold cycling and cryogenic applications. The extremely low thermal conductivity of Cryogel Z minimizes heat gain and liquid boil-off. It remains flexible, even at cryogenic temperatures, eliminating the need for complex, costly contraction joints, thereby simplifying and speeding installation.
