Thermal Insulation & Shielding
Protect Components and Systems from Excessive Heat Exposure
Manufacturers continually design more powerful, higher performing products. These faster, more powerful designs generate incremental waste heat that is detrimental to the safety and efficiency of critical systems and consumer-facing products. Blocking, insulating or shielding excess heat helps control touch temperature for consumer safety, maintain comfortable use environments, and protects heat-sensitive components.
Heat shields and thermal insulation solutions present many options for consideration like optimal material selection, unique geometry design, and assembly to help manage excess waste heat. Boyd’s Engineered Material experts collaborate with you to identify critical performance needs to recommend the best raw materials that will exceed both environmental and use exposures. These solutions are efficiently produced using industry-leading precision converting capabilities to create fully integrated insulation and shielding solutions customized for your application. We combine the performance benefits of multiple materials into one easy-to-install deliverable.
Complementary to our precision converting processes to make optimal thermal shields and insulators, Boyd Corporation also manufactures SOLIMIDE® Foams, a high performance, open-cell polyimide foam ideal for thermal and acoustic insulation. Our SOLIMIDE® Foams product family is lightweight, durable, non-toxic, exceeds FAR25.856 fire resistance requirements and has superior thermal and acoustic insulation properties. SOLIMIDE® Foams are found in aircraft, spacecraft, railcars, marine vessels and other application in one of seven variations to insulate in different temperature and environmental requirements.
