Project Description

By incorporating innovative nanotechnologies and nanomaterials, a panel with functional improvements is being developed, regarding weight, thickness, installation time, thermal insulation, fire protection, photocatalytic activity, etc. Scaled-up prototype panels have been produced and tested. The results indicate a reduction of up to 50% in weight, compared with other commercial panels, and a reduction of up to 75% in U after retrofitting of existing buildings.
