Imi-Tech Offers Catalog Of Insulating Products For Marine Applications

Imi-Tech Corporation, Elk Grove, 111., recently announced the availability of its new marine products brochure describing its line of lightweight, fire-resistant insulating products for marine applications.

The brochure, Catalog No. 584, also describes the unique core material, Solimide® polyimide foam, which is used in the manufacture of this family of marine products. Having great resistance to open flame, Solimide foam emits virtually no smoke or incapacitating toxic byproducts.

In addition, the material's light weight (0. 5 to 0.7 pounds/ft3), offers weight savings of 50 to 70 percent vs. conventional acoustical and thermal insulating materials. In use aboard the CG47 Class cruisers, Solimide- based marine products offer the Navy and shipbuilders considerable benefits in terms of labor savings, as the products' low weight and physical integrity permit a variety of improved installation techniques.

Solimide foam is available in marine end products which include thermal and acoustical hull board, acoustical ceiling panels, duct wrap, duct lining and for other shipboard applications.
