Custom Textile Insulation Solutions

With extensive experience as a system supplier in insulation technology, NovaNox® specializes in developing and producing customized textile insulation for manufacturers of machinery, equipment, and vehicle technology. Our tailor-made solutions are individually adapted to meet customer needs, providing superior insulation for all types of machines and equipment.

We excel in producing insulation mattresses, insulation pockets, and engine and exhaust gas insulation. Our textile insulations are extremely heat-resistant, capable of reducing radiated heat up to +1,200°C to a minimum. This prevents heat loss and maintains a constant system temperature in machines, plants, and vehicles.

NovaNox® textile insulations are precision-manufactured to fit specific contours. Thanks to individual cutting, our insulations fit tightly and precisely, saving valuable space, especially in angled machine rooms. This precise fit minimizes radiated heat and provides excellent contact protection.

In addition to contact protection, our insulations offer comprehensive combustion protection, safeguarding against burns and preventing injuries from touching hot pipes. This makes them ideal for engine insulation, silencer insulation, plant insulation, compensator insulation, and turbocharger insulation. Sensitive components are protected from radiated heat and premature wear, while connection points, brackets, and sensors remain accessible.

High-quality and certified NovaNox® insulations significantly improve occupational safety and offer exceptional flexibility. They are quick to dismantle, easy to reuse, and simple to clean. Our textile insulations also provide fire protection and sound absorption, and their high durability results in lower maintenance and disposal costs.

Advanced Structure of NovaNox® Textile Insulation

NovaNox® textile insulation is meticulously crafted using a fiberglass base, integrating efficient insulation materials into our high-performance technical fabric. The insulation layer thickness is selected based on your specific installation requirements, providing exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation.

Our thermal insulations consist of multiple layers: outer fabric, insulating material, inner fabric, and wire mesh. The outer fabric, positioned farthest from the heat source but closest to the external environment, is designed to resist external influences such as dirt, coolants, oil, and snow. The next layer, the actual insulating material, is composed of needled glass fiber mats. The more glass fiber mats used, the stronger the insulating effect.

The inner fabric, which comes into direct contact with the hot machine part, must endure extreme heat. It is made from glass fiber mats or silicate, reinforced with stainless steel threads for added durability. The wire mesh layer, placed before the inner fabric, serves to protect against excessive abrasion, ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of the insulation.

Eco-Friendly Textile Insulation by NovaNox®

Conventional insulation materials, including textile insulation, are often considered hazardous to people and the environment during maintenance or replacement. To address this issue, NovaNox® has developed sustainable insulation solutions. Our insulations feature a green outer layer to signify their eco-friendliness and help improve your green footprint. We also offer customization in your corporate colors if desired. A key advantage of our sustainable insulations is their compatibility; NovaNox® special textile insulations are free from calcium, sodium, and potassium, preventing the formation of toxic chromates.

NovaNox® eco-friendly textile insulations are individually manufactured to fit your specific installation requirements. They are heat-resistant up to 1100°C, and up to 1300°C for short periods, without compromising on performance. These insulations are non-flammable, coated with vermiculite on both sides, and remain flexible and soft. If you aim to make your vehicles and machinery more sustainable, contact us for a no-obligation initial consultation. Our insulations are produced to meet high standards, including:

  • Weave - DIN 61 101-1
  • Width - DIN EN 1773
  • Thickness - DIN EN ISO 5084 and DIN EN ISO 2286-3
  • Weight - DIN EN ISO 12127
  • Thread count - DIN EN 1049 - 2
  • Yarn count - DIN EN ISO 2060
  • Filament fineness - DIN 53 811
  • Maximum tensile force - ISO 4606


Risks of Conventional Insulations

Traditional insulation materials for engines or vulnerable pipes contain alkaline earth or alkaline metals such as calcium oxide (CaO), sodium oxide (Na₂O), and potassium oxide (K₂O). These materials consist of up to 40% of these oxides. Engine parts and stainless steel components often contain chromium compounds. At temperatures above 300°C, calcium oxide reacts with these chromium compounds, forming chromates like calcium chromate (CaCrO₄). This compound does not volatilize until temperatures exceed 800°C, depending on the chromium and calcium oxide content.

These heavy metal compounds are released during installation work and pose significant risks to humans and the environment, being carcinogenic, mutagenic, and particularly hazardous. Skin contact or inhalation of these compounds can cause serious health issues. Used insulating materials contaminated with chromates must be disposed of properly and at high cost as hazardous waste to prevent groundwater contamination.
