High Temperature Insulation and Plume Shields

Our engineers and technicians have experience working with, developing, designing, and fabricating a variety of high temperature MLI materials. 

  • Elevated Temperature (up to 300° C)
    Materials that are used for these applications include polyimide films, Nomex® threads, and PTFE impregnated glass cloth.
  • High Temperature (300° C to 1000° C)
    MLI blankets that will be used in this temperature range typically include graphite cloth, ceramic textiles, and fiberglass fabrics.
  • Ultra High Temperature (1000° C and above)
    Materials that are used in this temperature extreme include refractory metal foils (coated and uncoated), ceramic and silicon carbide textiles, graphic cloth, and silica fiber felt.
