Welcome to Quest Thermal Group

Quest Thermal Group is a world-leader in advanced thermal insulation systems.  Quest's Integrated MultiLayer Insulation (IMLI) is the highest performing thermal insulation available, and is rapidly becoming adopted for aerospace applications such as insulating cryopropellant tanks, launch vehicles, spacecraft, lunar surface missions, Mar surface missions, high altitude balloon observatory and stratospheric aircraft.

Quest Thermal develops and brings to market advanced, next generation, structural thermal insulation solutions for aerospace and commercial applications.

Quest Thermal has successfully developed new technology for NASA and Aerospace Primes in over 30 joint R&D programs, helping meet critical technology needs for future space exploration missions. Quest Thermal has design solutions for insulating spacecraft, launch vehicles, high turndown variable radiators, vapor cooling, ISRU liquefaction storage tanks, and lightweight LHe dewars.

Quest Thermal is developing commercial superinsulation for applications such as refrigerators/freezers, cold supply chain, LNG and LH2 tanks and carriers. Quest Thermal's UltraTherm offers very high performance insulation (R-100, 0.001 W/m-K).  We are currently developing advanced vapor cooled IMLI systems for LH2 storage in aircraft and transportation uses.  Liquid hydrogen is a clean fuel, but storing at 20K is a challenge, one that we have solved.

Quest Thermal Group provides innovative thermal solutions.  We work closely with client thermal and engineering teams to colloborate and provide the highest performance insulation available.  Contact us for a discussion on how Quest technology and expertise would benefit your application.
