HD Plate Pyropel

Note: This is a variation of Pyropel (Rigid and Flexible 600ºF Polyimide Fiber Insulating Boards & Felts).

Pyropel industrial insulation comes in a wide range of thermal and mechanical properties to address specific application needs, from high compressive strength MD-60 for tool base or platen insulators to MD-18 for highly efficient perimeter insulation. Pyropel is also available in solid plastic form use as precision thermal/mechanical machine components.

Additional Information

Pyropel® is available in three different forms:

High Density (HD)
Pure polyimide plate, Pyropel HD is easily machined to make both mechanical and thermal components for highly engineered equipment. These components include high-temperature spacers, washers, slides, and bearings.
