Insulation for construction machinery prevents fires: no heat, no breakdown, more profitability
Efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment, reliable fire protection or effective sound insulation – our insulation solutions make a decisive contribution to increasing the efficiency of your construction machinery.
Less heat, more safety. With tmax insulation cladding
tmax offers customized, intelligent solutions
In the construction industry, you face more than one challenge. The risk of fire in the engine compartment is high and represents an enormous danger for man and machine. If a fire occurs, the consequences are severe. Added to this are increasingly stringent exhaust and noise standards, which are designed to enable more efficient, low-impact use.
Many challenges. One solution: tmax insulating cladding.
Fulfillment of exhaust emission standard

Sometimes, not only one type of insulation is suitable. More and more often, our solutions are as individual as your challenge. We combine the advantages of suitable insulation types and develop an insulation solution specifically tailored to your requirements.
The full power of tmax insulation: temperatures to below 220 °C
tmax offers customized, intelligent solutions
A large proportion of fires in construction equipment, start in the engine compartment. The main cause is the high surface temperature of components such as turbochargers, manifolds and exhaust tracts, which can reach up to 750 °C.
Studies recommend minimizing the potential risks as early as the machine designing stage. Thermal insulation of hot surfaces is particularly suitable for this purpose. Additionally, it is suggested to keep hydraulic and electrical lines safely away from heat sources and from each other. Prevention proves to be the best measure because a prevented fire does not need to be extinguished.
Whether it's efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment, reliable fire protection or effective soundproofing – our solutions make a decisive contribution
Significantly improved exhaust gas aftertreatment
Our contribution to the environment, man, and machine
To reduce the emission of pollutants, agreements on limit values have been reached at an international level. These will be gradually lowered for new vehicles. Level V of the EU Emissions Regulation and Tier 4 in the U.S. have been in effect since 2019. The growing requirements for noise protection also call for new measures to reduce noise.
tmax insulation solutions offer:
- Comply with emission guidelines
- Improved light-off behavior
- Significantly increased efficiency
- Reduce noise pollution
- Perfect fit on blanks
Pssst. tmax for compliance with strict noise protection specifications
The high-temperature insulation that absorbs sound
Drivers of small and large construction vehicles are, typically, exposed to loud engine noises. The noise levels sometimes pose a high burden for adjacent residential areas. If work is carried out around the clock, this is difficult to accept.
However, sound-absorbing measures in the engine compartment are not easy because they require space.
With tmax Sonetherm, we have an innovative solution for you. The sound-absorbing insulation combines direct thermal insulation with the principle of sound absorption to reliably reduce disturbing noise without compromising the thermal and mechanical properties of the insulation or the motor performance.
Insulation technologies for off-highway vehicles.
When high-horsepower engines operate safely and efficiently off-highway and easily comply with valid emission standards, it usually means that creative solutions from tmax are involved.
Efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment
in the off-highway sector
We offer solutions for reducing the surface temperature to as low as 60 °C, thus ensuring maximum operational safety and reliability for your machines.
