Insulation Blanket to increase thermal resistance in space-limited applications

Product watch


Dow Corning Corp., a silicones and silicon-based technology company, has released the HPI-1000 Building Insulation Blanket. The product offers improved thermal resistance as compared to conventional insulation products, providing a high insulating value of R 9.8 hr-ft2-F/Btu per inch (USI 0.58 W/m2K per 25 mm). Its thin profile, flexibility and compression resistance allow for thermal protection in hard-to-insulate spaces, while eliminating the need for bulky or messy insulation in tight areas of a building’s design.

The gray-colored insulation blanket can be cut and conformed to complex shapes and tight curvatures, and adhered to building products without difficulty, either in a shop or onsite. In addition, 10-millimeter Dow Corning HPI-1000 Building Insulation Blanket is fire resistant and hydrophobic, and does not settle over time.

Dow Corning HPI-1000 Building Insulation Blanket can be used at service temperatures up to 390°F. It carries a Class A fire rating per ASTM E84, with a flame spread index of five and a smoke developed index of 10.
