Thermal-Acoustic Insulation for Military Land Systems

Thermal-Acoustic InsulationThermal-acoustic insulation for military land systems absorbs heat and sound. These composite structures are used in engine compartments, doors, floors, side panels, and hatch covers. Elasto Proxy custom-fabricates thermal-acoustic insulation from foams, films, facings, and other specialized materials that meet your requirements. Our capabilities include water jet cutting for precise cuts, lamination for the reliable joining of different materials, and taping for thermal-acoustic insulation that’s easy-to-install.

For designers of military vehicles, it’s important to specify thermal-acoustic insulation that supports the mission. The big diesel engines that power military land systems run hot and loud. Heat and noise from the engine bay don’t just make the crew compartment uncomfortable. The air conditioning needs to run constantly, soldiers can’t hear each other over engine sounds, and the vehicle’s thermal profile is more susceptible to infrared detection. High heat can damage vehicle electronics, too. (more…)

Structural Foams for Strong, Lightweight Insulation

Structural FoamsElasto Proxy custom fabricates strong, lightweight insulation made from structural foams. Applications include custom baths, signs and displays, and blast mitigation. 

Structural foams are strong but lightweight materials with a sandwich-like structure. They consist of a foam core that’s sandwiched between two thin but solid layers. During production, a blowing agent is introduced and process parameters are modified. Compared to solid injection molding, the foam molding process provides important design and performance benefits. Structural foams also support cost-effective custom fabrication and can be laminated to other materials in multi-layer composites. (more…)
