NMHPI-DA is a composite insulating material made up of a fire-retardant foam core with a highly durable, fire-retardant, polymer coated poly-aramid cloth covering, available in a range of colours.

This combination makes it suitable for a variety of applications, particularly vehicle cabins where the insulation will be visible and subject to abrasion or shocks.

Main Features:

  • Light weight
  • Fire retardant
  • Water resistant – easily washable
  • Highly resistant to abrasion, tearing and piercing (Kevlar reinforced)
  • Can be used for parts machined to drawings
  • Self-adhesive (non self-adhesive version also available)
  • Colour matching available
  • Thickness about 5 – 40 mm
  • Storage: The cloth covering should be protected from direct sunlight. The parts shall be stored flat and with the cloth facing down. Store in a cool, dry location.
  • Expiry date: 2 years from manufacture (see label)
