- The high demand for LNG across the globe drives the market for cryogenic insulation films.
- The increase in the cryogenic insulation demand for various applications drives the global cryogenic insulation films market.
- China cryogenic insulation films market is estimated to witness lucrative growth.
In today’s world the use of cryogenics and low-temperature refrigeration is taking a more and more significant role. Cryogenic insulation films are used from food industry, transportation, medical applications, energy to the space shuttle. To minimize the heat leaks in the storage tanks, containers and transfer lines cryogenic insulation films are used. Cryogenic are available using polyamide base films and other materials suitable for specific purposes. Cryogenic insulation films are either single side (SAM) metallized or double side metallized (DAM) to meet the low emissivity requirements to block the radiant energy. Cryogenic insulation films are basically used in the multilayer cryogenic insulation systems. The multilayer cryogenic insulation systems are made of double aluminized Mylar, polyethylene terephthalate film. The aluminum is vacuum deposited on the cryogenic insulation films and has an average emissivity of 0.03. Most multilayer insulation systems consist of thin reflective layers (such as aluminized Mylar) of cryogenic insulation films separated from each other by thermally insulating layers. Multilayer insulation designs omit the separate insulating layers, aluminize only one side of the Mylar and fold the Mylar so that only point contacts exist between the layers. The demand for cryogenic insulation in the chemical industries is the key factor driving the global cryogenic insulation films market during the forecast period. The transporting lines of liquids and gases that require thermal insulation, cryogenic insulation films are an ideal choice.
Cryogenic insulation films are used in the construction of single or multilayer insulation systems. Cryogenic insulation films are designed for use in low to high vacuum systems (10-6 Torr) for the storage of liquid natural gas. Laminated cryogenic insulation films consists of a bonded layer of non-woven polyester laminated to a double-side metallized polyester film for storage and transportation of liquefied gases held at 100 K and below. Cryogenic insulation films saves labor in winding multiple layers of insulation while providing radiant energy barrier available for cryogenic tanks, containers and pipes. Some of the benefits of using cryogenic insulation films are:
Reduces time by eliminating much of the labor in installation, Laminate construction is more strong & less prone to ripping than paper and foil materials & Cleaner
The high demand for LNG (Liquid natural gas) across the globe drives the market for cryogenic insulation films. Cryogenic insulation films of reflective and non-woven intermediate layers provide a consistent barrier for the entire 360° from other types of materials shifting or transporting during transport. Further, the increase in the cryogenic insulation demand for various applications drives the global cryogenic insulation films market during the forecast period.
