The WDS UltraShell offers low thermal conductivity values across a wide temperature range, and is claimed to provide up to five times better insulation performance, than that of conventional insulators.
A range of diameters, thicknesses and frame designs is available. It can be cut and pre-formed on site to seal around a pipe. Compared with other microporous insulation products on the market, the company claims it has superior mechanical strength with lower density as well as low and flat thermal activity. It offers thermal stability and dimensional integrity at temperatures up to 1,000°C.
At its core is a reinforced blend of opacified premium grade inorganic silicates and pyrogenic silica. The homogeneous, compact and robust matrix core allows the product to remain stable with negligible shrinkage.
The product is environmentally safe, being free from respirable fibre, rutile (TiO2) and other hazardous substances, and complies with both the standard specification for microporous insulation ASTM C1676 and ISO standards.
