Basalt Application – Insulation System

PyroProtecto Insuljack-1600 is built in multiple layers.

Insuljack-1600 pushes higher temperature applications and presents in its constructions a very safe, clean and cost effective solution.

PyroProtecto-1600 is a 3-layer Insulation system:

a) Silicone coated fiberglass

  • Silicone temperature rating: 500 degrees F
  • Glass fabric substrate rating: 900 degrees F

b) E-Glass Needle Punched Mat

  • temperature rating: 1,200 degrees F
  • Thickness : 1/4″, 1/2″, 1″
  • Width: 60″

c) Basalt Needle Punched Mat 

  • temperature rating: 1600 degrees F
  • Thickness : 1/4″, 1/2″, 1″
  • Width: 60″

Below  pictures represent a typical example of building up the three layers;

The fabric will be on the outside, encapsulating the insulation and protecting it from outside temperatures or moisture or other impact.

The second Layer is the Glass needle punched mat, breaking the heat down from max 1,200 degrees, to the desired temperature rating.

The third layer is the Basalt needle punched mat. Its purpose is to break down the heat from max. 1,600 degrees F to approx. 1,200 degrees F, where the more affordable Glass mat takes over, to further lower temperature levels.

Note: For flat applications, we can also offer a Basalt Board, which sometimes is easier to handle; e.g. it can be pinned to the Heat source’s outer surface area.

Depending on the actual application, the engineer calculates the required insulation values (K-values at high temperatures or R-Values for low & cryogenic applications). Based on those values, the optimal configuration or insulation system can be put together.

This procedure not only results in best insulation values, but also prevents from insulating at higher cost than necessary.

The E-Glass needled mat and the Basalt needled mat can be delivered in various densities and thicknesses.
