High Performance Thermal Insulation WDS®

WDS® differs from conventional thermal insulation with complete control of heat transfer including solid heat transmission, air molecule motion and infrared transmission,

achieving a better low thermal conductivity than still air.

Demonstrating better thermal insulation performance than other thermal insulation, it contributes to creating of smaller, lighter energy-saving devices.

Heat transition characteristics

  1. 1. Solid heat transition
    WDS® molded fumed silica (5 to 30nm/ball)
    • ・Low inherent thermal conductivity
    • ・Small heat transition pathway due to point contact of granules
  2. 2. Gaseous heat transition
    Air molecule motion restricted by enclosure in 100nm or smaller micro pores
    • ・Molecular impact prevented by heat transition restriction
  3. 3. Infrared radiation
    Restriction of heat transition by infrared through adding infrared absorbent material
