ZIRCAR Ceramics, Inc.: Microporous Silica Insulation
March 18, 2004
ZIRCAR Ceramics, Inc. recently announced the introduction of its new MICROSIL microporous silica thermal insulation. Unique to MICROSIL's microporous structure is its low density, which minimizes conductive heat transfer, and its billions of nano-pockets, which block convection and reflect heat energy back to its source. Microsil is a combination of ultra-fine silica powders, specially processed refractory oxides and glass reinforcing agents. Compacted under tons of pressure to form a lightweight yet rigid structure, MICROSIL offers a maximum insulation value in a minimum amount of space, which saves weight and energy.
