Some thermal insulation problems require a custom solution from a team of experienced experts.
We have over 8 years experience in fabricating, cutting and laminating Spacetherm aerogel blanket and posses a vast library of suitable materials, adhesives & encapsulations for a wide array of applications.
Our in-house Research & Development team is based at our premises in Scotland, and exhibits enthusiasm as well as professionalism in reviewing product applications, fabrications and solutions.

The Custom Cut Solution
Step 1 - Discuss Requirements
Contact us to discuss your project needs; we've dealt with everything from pipework to a satellite bound for orbit.
Step 2 - 3D Modelling
To ensure accuracy when modelling complex geometries we can first create a 3D model.
Step 3 - 2D CAD Drawing
CAD details are created either by 'unfolding' a 3D model, or rendered directly in CAD by our technicians.
Step 4 - Cutting
These CAD details are then sent to our sophisticated cutting facilities to be cut to the exact shape required.
Step 5 - The Finished Product
Above shows the output from the cutting machine for a 90 degree pipe bend.
Step 6 - Product Application
The completed insulation solution can then be applied to the target object.
