Engine Expo hailed best show yet!
The Suburban Collection Showplace played host to a number of exciting technology debuts live on the show floor, as typified by Interface Performance Materials, which highlighted its new thermal insulation material, Interface TI1K. Developed using trace organics, this new product eliminates two common issues associated with thermal insulation materials. Application engineer, Jonathan X Zhang, explained, “The challenge with thermal insulation materials is that they cannot survive beyond 400oC and when burnt out an ash is produced. They also give off a distinctive odor.”
The project to develop Interface TI1K was initiated following a request from customer Elring Klinger, a manufacturer of heat shielding, which had received complaints from a large OEM about the smell. Interface Performance Materials’ new thermal insulation is not only odorless, but can also operate at 1,000oC without producing any smoke or ash. It can be applied more cost-effectively than other available materials as it does not require any pre-treatment.
