Project Description

A novel aerogel with very low thermal conductivity and based on a high-silica content precursor was developed during the project and incorporated into three building products: paint, plaster, and panels. All three products demonstrated improved thermal performance compared to benchmark products and provide an opportunity to utilize the usually fragile aerogel in both new buildings and retrofits.
