Morgan Advanced Ceramics WDS® Flexible Contour Porextherm
Categories: Ceramic; Oxide; Silicon Oxide

Material Notes: WDS® Flexible Contour is a microporous insulation material with an extremely low coefficient of thermal conductivity, i.e. with very good insulating properties. WDS® Flexible Contour consists of inorganic silicates. The main constituent is fumed silica, the other components are opacifiers for minimizing infrared radiation and reinforcing glass filaments. WDS® Flexible Contour (core material) is not flammable and meets the requirements of IMO FTPC part 1 and DIN EN 13501-1, part 1 class A1. WDS® Flexible Contour is heat sealed in a close-fitting 15 µm PE shrink film.

Application: WDS® Flexible Contour was specially developed for applications in the automotive industry. In this case, specifically for automotive exhaust systems. The significant reduction of the required insulation thicknesses with WDS® Flexible Contour leads to highly efficient weight and space-saving thermal insulation.

Typical applications: WDS® Flexible Contour is already successfully used as insulation material in the following areas: Muffler/Silencer within exhaust systems, Exhaust Manifold, Cone Insulation, Pipe Insulation.
