Promat at IEX – Insulation Expo Europe 2018:
Insulation solutions for piping
|Interview with Michael Moreau,
Marketing & Communications, Promat
Mr. Moreau, how do you think the market for technical insulation will develop in the medium term?
All indications show that the demand for thermal insulation will grow, as consciousness around CO2 reduction is growing and ambitious targets have been set by most countries following the Paris climate treaty.
More specifically, the need for smart solutions for mass transportation and urbanisation trends will require more ultra-thin, high-performance insulation solutions.
Which topics are currently in the focus for your company and will continue to gain more importance?
Renewable energy and customer-centered applications in all fields of industry we service.
Which new solutions do you show at the IEX 2018?
We will be showcasing our insulation solutions for piping and pipe supports.
What distinguishes these new solutions and products?
They are based on microporous and calcium silicate technology, and are significantly thinner and lighter than any other insulation material. They are available in a hydorphobic version or with a water repellent coating, have a long service life and require low or even no maintenance.
To whom do you address yourself specifically with these products?
Engineering companies, EPC’s, installers, distributors, plant owners, designers who have a thermal and fireproofing issue to solve.
