Manufacturer Description

Sometimes called ‘frozen smoke’, aerogels are lightweight insulation solids. Cabot’s aerogel, sold as Enova® aerogel and Lumira® aerogel, is a hydrophobic aerogel consisting of approximately 95% air, contained in nano-sized pores that inhibit heat transfer through the aerogel material. Plaster, boards, daylighting systems, tensile roofing, and coatings comprise the current suite of energy efficient materials enabled by Cabot’s aerogel products. In new construction, rehabs, and historical buildings of all types, these universally applicable solutions are designed to significantly improve thermal efficiency and indoor air quality, reduce HVAC and lighting electrical system loads, protect systems and personnel, enhance productivity, and increase occupant comfort.
