Morgan Advanced Ceramics Vacupor® NT Porextherm
Categories: Ceramic

Material Notes: Description: Vacupor® NT is a microporous insulation material which has an extremely low thermal conductivity coefficient giving it very good insulating properties. Vacupor® NT consists of inorganic oxides. The main constituent is fumed silica, the other components are opacifiers for minimizing infrared radiation, and silicates. Vacupor® NT (core material) is not flammable and meets the requirements of IMO FTPC part 1 and DIN ISO 4102 part 1, A1. Vacupor® NT is heat sealed under vacuum in a multilayer vacuum metalized film. The very low internal pressure and the microporous panel core enable it to reach extremely low thermal conductivity values.

Application: Vacupor® NT was specially developed for applications in vacuum insulation technology. The low density and the specially developed IR opacifiers contained in these grades greatly reduce the thermal conductivity of Vacupor® NT Systems.

Typical applications: Vacupor® NT is also successfully used as insulation material in the following areas:

  • Domestic appliances (refrigerator and freezer cabinets)
  • Absorption refrigerators
  • Cryogenic freezer
  • Temperature controlled packaging
  • Transport boxes
  • Facade elements
  • Terrace insulation
  • Cold storage floor insulation
