Thermal Insulation Materials

Polymer Product Solutions

In our mission to provide comprehensive state-of-the-art custom insulation solutions, Polymer Technologies carries a diverse array of thermal insulation options to meet our customers’ most stringent demands. From simple high temperature insulation to complex polymers such as hydrophobic melamine foam, we work with our clients to supply their business with the insulation materials they need for the job at hand.

Our unparalleled ability to meet industry standards and the individual requests of our clients is a result of our decades of experience. For over 20 years, Polymer Technologies Inc. has consulted with partners and customers across all industries to deliver thermal insulation solutions that are innovative in design as well as reliably durable. As a result, we’ve been able to establish our company as a leading name in thermal insulation solutions.

Our engineers will dissect your problems and
develop an unparalleled solution.

Below is a sampling of our thermal insulation products for a variety of applications:

POLYDAMP® Melamine Foam (PMF)

POLYDAMP® Melamine Foam (PMF) is an extremely lightweight insulation material that exhibits exceptional resistance to heat, low flame propagation, and smoke. It possesses excellent thermal and acoustical insulation properties.

Polydamp<sup>®</sup> Melamine Foam
  • Density of 0.56 lbs/ft³
  • Temperature Range: -300°F to +356°F; intermittent to +492°F
  • Flammability: UL94 V-0, FAR 25.856,BSS 7365
  • K factor of 0.25 at 68°F
  • Meets all aircraft, HVAC, and transportation (rail) flame, smoke, and toxicity standards

Available with a variety of film facings and PSA backings.

POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine Foam (PHM)

POLYDAMP® Hydrophobic Melamine foam (PHM) is an enhanced version of PMF, offering exceptional water-resistance properties, previously unattainable with standard melamine foam, while maintaining all other key attributes.

Polydamp<sup>®</sup> Hydrophobic Melamine Foam
  • Density of 0.56 lbs/ft³
  • Temperature Range: -300°F to +356°F; intermittent to +492°F
  • Flammability: UL94 V-0, FAR 25.856,8557365
  • K factor of 0.25 at 68°F
  • Floats indefinitely in water; water streams bead-up on surface and roll-off
  • Meets all aircraft (FAA, BSS, etc.), HVAC and transportation (rail) flame, smoke, and toxicity standards

Available with a variety of film facings and PSA backings.

POLYDAMP® Low Emissivity Foam (PLE)

POLYDAMP® Low Emissivity Foam (PLE) Low Emissivity Foam (PLE) is a lightweight composite insulation material designed to address all three thermal issues: conduction, convection, and radiation. It is an ideal insulation material because of its composite construction of a reinforced aluminum foil on either side of a low-density, closed cell thermal insulation.

Polydamp<sup>®</sup> Low Emissivity Foam
  • Weighs 0.75 oz/ft² at 0.25" thick
  • Temperature Range: -60°F to +180°F
  • Flammability: FMVSS302; Meets all HVAC and transportation (rail) flame, smoke and toxicity standards
  • R Value of 7.55 up to 10.74, depending on installation
  • Emissivity Value of 0.032
  • Highly polished foil facing reflects 98% of radiant heat
  • Excellent Condensation/Vapor Barrier with a Perm Rating of 0.008
  • Available in 0.125", 0.1875", 0.25" and 0.50" (tri-foil) thicknesses

Applications include equipment where operators or components need to be kept at very stable temperatures, including walls, HVAC ducts, etc.

POLYDAMP® Polyimide Foam (PPF)

POLYDAMP® Polyimide Foam (PPF) is an extremely lightweight insulation material that exhibits exceptional resistance to heat, low flame propagation, and smoke.

Polydamp Polyimide Foam
  • Density of 0.60 lbs/ft³
  • Temperature Range -238°F to +400°F
  • Flammability: UL94 V-0 listed.  Meets all aircraft, coastguard, HVAC and transportation (rail) flame, smoke and toxicity standards 
  • K factor of 0.29 at 68 °F

Applications range from HVAC and ECS ducts to wall and fuselage insulation within a variety of industries, but primarily used in aerospace and shipboard industries.

POLYTECH® Heat Shield (HS)

POLYTECH® Heat Shield (HS-0035-ALVA3) is an aluminum foil-faced fiberglass fabric and PSA composite designed to reflect radiant heat while offering excellent protection to high heat exposure.

Heatshield
  • Extremely thin (0.035") and lightweight (2.3 oz/ft²) composite allows for use virtually anywhere
  • Temperature up to 1000°F in localized areas within a larger area of material
  • Highly polished foil reflects 98% of radiant energy
  • Extremely durable
  • Available as a facing on PMF and other foams to increase temperature resistance and thermal insulation properties   

Applications for this thermal insulation include gas tanks and any other areas exposed to extreme heat from exhaust pipes, turbos, etc.

POLYTECH® Heat Shield Tubing (HST)

POLYTECH® Heat Shield Tubing (HST) is an aluminum foil-faced fiberglass fabric composite designed to reflect radiant heat while offering excellent protection to high heat exposure.

  • Extremely thin (0.035") and lightweight (2.3 oz/ft²) composite allows for use virtually anywhere
  • Tube construction eases installation and assembly
  • Highly polished foil reflects 98% of radiant energy
  • Temperature up to 1000°F in localized areas within a larger area of material
  • Extremely durable

Applications for this thermal insulation include hoses, tubes, etc. exposed to high heat and in need of thermal protection.

POLYDAMP® Low Flame and Smoke Foam

POLYDAMP® Low-FS Closed Cell Foam is a proprietary elastomeric compound designed for use as a thermal insulating and gasketing material where low flame spread and smoke propagation characteristics are required.

Polydamp  Low Flame and Smoke Foam
  • Density: 3.5 lbs/ft³
  • Temperature Range: -297°F to +220°F
  • Water Absorption: <0.20% by volume
  • Surface Burning Characteristics Flame & Smoke: <25 and 50
