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.

Background Image



img_0879-7PolaPair™ is a cryogenic superinsulation subsystem that combines a single reflector layer and separator. Standard configurations come in lengths of 100, 200, and 500 feet, and custom widths of up to 86 inches, which can then be wrapped in layers to create an insulation system. This allows for fabrication of insulation systems that can suit a variety of requirements.

PolaPair™ 2 is similar to PolaPair™, but is constructed with two layers of separator material for each reflector layer.


– basic single layer insulation
– can be wrapped around itself to create an insulation system with multiple layers
– wrapping storage vessels and transfer lines
