Market Overview

Insulation materials are generally thick in size to provide better insulation. However, in some cases the available space for application of insulation material is limited. In such cases, thin insulation materials are utilized. Insulation materials can be made in different sizes and forms. Materials such as plastic, metals, fiberglass, aerogels, silica, and others are exclusively utilized to manufacture thin insulation materials. The thickness of these thin insulation materials is not greater than 20 mm. Thin insulation is applied in various industries including automobile, construction, and others. Thin insulation materials provide insulation from heat, noise, current, and other factors as well as takes up very little place as compared to other thick insulation materials.
