AmorSil™ and Q-Board™ are two new lightweight insulation panels made to offer superior infrared reflection properties. AmorSil is a proprietary blend of chemically and thermally treated amorphous silica fibers and inorganic binders. Q-Board is a proprietary blend of fused quartz fibers and inorganic binders that is made in North America. New test equipment was constructed to evaluate the infrared reflective properties of these two products. Infrared reflection measurement has been traditionally difficult, to the point where some labs have abandoned the pursuit. The Infrared Reflection Comparative Test Station, or IRC, was designed to compare the amount of infrared energy reflected from the surface of rigid insulation panels. Test results and typical data are is available in the technical papers area of the company’s website. Call (330) 938-2101 or visit
