High temperature coating for Pyrogel...

High temperature coating for Pyrogel...


I'm currently working with Pyrogel XT(a flexible laminate aerogel based sheet), I'm using it for it's extremely good insulation properties. The material is extremely dusty, which is not a suitable property for the application I'm trying to use it for(other than that it's perfect). Is anyone aware of some sort of high temperature coating(~260C)that will help fuse the dust particles together? I've currently experimented with polyurethane sprays, however they don't withstand the temperatures in my application.

Basically I'm insulating piping, but I need a permanent coating to cut down on dust.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
