Cryogel® Z

Flexible Cryogenic Insulation for Cold Work

Cryogel® Z cryogenic insulation is used in below-ambient-temperature applications in the oil and gas processing industry (LNG, LPG, ethylene, etc.) and industrial appliances. Cryogel® Z has the lowest k-value of any widely used cryogenic insulation material, reducing thicknesses by 50%-80%. Cryogel® Z’s flexible blanket form, with a factory-applied vapor barrier, is both fast to install and durable, resulting in lower-cost, higher performing designs.

Superior Thermal Performance

Up to five times better thermal performance than competing insulation products

Reduced Thickness and Profile

Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness

Less Time and Labor to Install

Cryogel® Z insulation is easily cut and conformed to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access

Zero Permeability Due to Integral Vapor Barrier

Provides redundant moisture protection in an easy-to-install package

Physically Robust

Soft and flexible but with excellent springback

Shipping and Warehousing Savings

Reduced material volume, high packing density, and low scrap rates can reduce shipping volumes by a factor of five or more compared to rigid, pre-formed insulations

Eliminates Contraction Joints

Because it remains flexible even at cryogenic temperatures, Cryogel® Z cryogenic insulation eliminates the contraction joints used to prevent compressive failure in other insulation materials

Environmentally Safe

Landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content
