Successful business development with microporous insulating materials

Porextherm is your provider of innovative thermal insulation.

Since the company foundation in the year 1989 in Waltenhofen near Kempten, we continuously extended our core competence within the range of microporous high performance thermal insulation systems and developed a broad Portfolio of partly patent-protected products and production processes.

In the following years, the activities which were limited to the range of high temperature insulation at that time, developed so successfully, that we needed to transfer our production into a new and above all larger site to Kempten-Leubas, Heisingerstr. 8 in the year 1999. This is our company headquarters until today.

The continuation of the activities of the American based company Cabot® in the year 2001 was the basis for the extremely successful business development within the range of Vacuum Insulation Panels - VIPs. Today, our vacuum panels are successfully used world-wide under the brand name of Vacupor® in various applications.

Through the acquisition of the thermal insulation materials business - WDS® - of the Wacker Silicones Division in the year 2004, we developed to one of the world-wide leading suppliers in the market segment of microporous high temperature insulation and of Vacuum Insulation Panels in Europe.

New products for applications such as ceramic hobs, off-shore oil production, automotive industry and aerospace have supplemented the product range since then.

The merger of the formerly two production sites to one site in the Heisinger Straße 8 was completed in July 2008. With this, Porextherm now possesses central, modern and efficient facilities that offer sufficient capacities to supply the rapidly growing markets in the future with high-quality products.

In Juli 2014 Porextherm Dämmstoffe GmbH was acquired by Morgan Advanced Materials plc.
