SPECIFIC MATERIAL – MULTI – LAYER INSULATION

Product Description

Multi-layered insulation is a high tech insulator that provides effective and efficient insulation against various types of heat transfer. It consists of a combination of layers of thin reflective space blanket material, commonly plastics coated with aluminium, with foam in between each layer. Having these layers bonded, the multi-layer quilt is thin, lightweight, and forms a highly effective barrier against heat transfer due to conduction, convection and thermal radiation.

Key Features

  • Absorbance – Ability to reflect solar energy
  • Ability to radiate energy

By design, Absorbance properties can be configured to control the temperature of the spacecraft surfaces.

In doing so MLI insulation materials with high emittance will radiate heat long after the spacecraft is out of the suns exposure.

Applications

  • Structural Members
  • Instrumentation
  • Antennas
  • Radiators
  • Wiring Harnesses
  • Sun shield Covers
