We Know Aerospace !
Darchem’s ability to select and develop insulation systems for use in high temperature, onerous and confined areas is based upon in excess of over 60 years of technical knowledge combined with extensive material experience and performance.
Developed system design not only includes thermal and fire requirements, but also considers other criteria such as product weight, fluid resistance, available cooling airflow, space constraints, fixings and expected life cycles etc.
Thermal blanket solutions can include traditional metallic skin blankets or coupons but options includes composite cold surface coverings that bring added flexibility and weight savings. Insulation assemblies can be either integral (permanently attached) or detachable for those areas where ease of removal inspection is required for example. The choice of exterior blanket cover provides the level of protection from physical/fluid damage but unlike the insulation core, they generally do not offer significant temperature savings.
