18-Oct-2010 Overcome design challenges while meeting today's strict energy and building code requirements

Because it offers unsurpassed thermal efficiency, high-quality diffused light and sound reduction, Nanogel has gained wide acceptance across the US and Europe for use in highly insulated daylighting systems of all types, including:

Structural Composite Panels
Structural Polycarbonate Systems
U-Channel Glass
Insulated Glass Units
Unit Skylights and Smoke Vents
Tensile Structures/Fabric Roofing

Within these systems, Cabot;s aerogel offers architects and building owners a number of design benefits, including the ability to incorporate more daylight and optimize building aesthetics without sacrificing, but actually improving efficiency, occupant comfort and productivity.

Performance benefits include:

High light transmission – 75% per cm
Low thermal conductivity – R-value of 8/inch (U-value can go as low as 0.28 W/m2K depending on the system and thickness)
Reduced solar heat gain
Sound attenuation – reduces transmitted noise
Permanence – resists color change, mold and mildew, and performance degradation
Green product and manufacturing process
Reduced building energy consumption and carbon footprint
