The innovation of ultralight
The Innovation of UltraLight™

  • UltraLight™ is a high integrity, low density material...

    that is not a foam!

  • Mechanical integrity of a syntactic foam

  • density & thermal conductivity of a chemically expanded foam

  • Material lighter than 5 PCF has been fabricated

  • Meet the requirements for insulating the space shuttle external tank


The systems approach
The Systems Approach

  • Layered, Cryogenic Insulation System

  • Incorporates CTD’s expertise:

    Adhesives

    Thermal Insulation

    Protective Coatings

  • Each layer can be optimized

    • gives best system performance
