Xirtherm™ C140 composite cryogenic thermal break blocks

High strength and machinable to a variety of shapes

This rigid composite syntactic material is used for insulation and support in subsea and cryogenic applications. With high mechanical strength and low thermal conductivity, Xirtherm™ C140 is placed between structural elements to restrict the flow of thermal energy.

Xirtherm™ C140 is used for pipe and vessel supports, trunnion supports, and subsea supports requiring insulation in flow assurance applications.  It is a unique material manufactured from epoxy resins and ultra-high strength glass microspheres.
