NORTHBOROUGH, Mass., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspen Aerogels has introduced a new high-temperature insulation for industrial applications. Pyrogel® XT-E combines the industry-leading thermal performance of Pyrogel® XT with new features making it easier to handle and install in refining, petrochemical, power and other facilities.
