Since 1997 Movevirgo Limited has been involved in manufacturing various pre-moulded products for the oil and gas industry using the CONTRATHERM® SYNTACTIC PHENOLIC FOAM SYSTEM, as produced by Advanced Insulation Systems Limited (formerly Alderley Materials Limited). This involvement has been both as the sub-contractor to Advanced Insulation Systems Limited, and also as the main contractor.

The CONTRATHERM® materials have excellent properties both as a thermal insulator and in offering blast and jet fire protection, when applied and used in the correct configurations. Should any material / design technical backup be required this is accessed through Advanced Insulation Systems Limited, to ensure the CLIENTCCC end client receives a product of the highest quality end client receives a product of the highest quality.
