Technical insulation refers to the products that are specifically designed for industrial and commercial applications.  It is the process of insulating technical systems such as pipelines, tanks, ducts, and other equipment. Technical insulation offers a wide range of industrial, commercial, and oil and gas applications. Technical insulation designed to control temperature, reduce energy consumption, mitigate noise, preventing heat loss or heat gain, and ensure safety in various professional applications. It is the process of reduction of heat transfer from entering or existing a physical space. Technical insulation has several characteristics include thermal resistance, energy efficiency, flexible, rigid insulation, fire resistance, and acoustic insulation. This insulation is used in various industries including construction, manufacturing, refrigeration, energy, and transportation. Technical insulation can be classified into hot insulation, cold-flexible insulation, and cold-rigid insulation. Thermal conductivity is one of the significant characteristics of the technical insulations. It is one of the most effective and less expensive process for the reduction of carbon dioxide. The rapid urbanization of the cities has a major impact on the technical insulation market expansion.
