The Pyrogels insulation material is being used in Australia to protect the firebox in an apartment.
News24’s Matt Grieve says that it was a very significant development because it shows that the industry is on the right track.
“Pyrogel is the same insulation material used in the pyrolytic firebox insulation.
So, the pyrogels is really the first insulation that we’ve seen from the industry that actually protects the pyrometer.”
It’s really quite amazing to see that in Australia.
“The Australian firebox is still in its infancy.
But we’re seeing it becoming a big part of our society.”
He says that Pyrogell has now joined the ranks of a number of industries that are working towards an ideal world.
“We have to do something about fires, fires can be extremely destructive, they can be very dangerous,” he said.
“And the pyrodynamic fires are really a challenge.”
They’re really the cause of the fire.
“So, the Pyrogells firebox will be the first thing we put into place in the future.”
That firebox can be the ultimate home insulation and the Pyrovogels will be one of the first materials that will be installed in that firebox.
