Insulation Materials
Effective thermal insulation with wood foam
Thermal Insulation : 10 March, 2014
Insulation materials of tomorrow must be both efficient and environmentally friendly. Fraunhofer scientists are developing insulation foam made from wood that could replace petrochemical plastics in the long term.
 
Aerogel in insulation - impact, and the future
Thermal Insulation : 23 February, 2014
Recent years have seen some truly staggering advances into material development and use that promises to change the landscape of how we implement and use technology in a number of fields and applications. Melissa Coates reviews the development of aerogels in insulation.
 
Extrudable sound absorbers extend reach into hygiene-sensitive areas
Acoustic Insulation : 25 January, 2013
Noise abatement is growing in importance, thus, the demand for better acoustic building components. Scientists are developing aesthetically attractive and flexibly applicable microperforated sound absorbers.
 
Aerogels: 'Solid smoke' may have many uses
Aerogels : 02 April, 2004
It looks like glass and feels like solidified smoke, but the most interesting features of the new silica aerogels made by UC Davis and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers are too small to see or feel. Lighter than styrofoam, this strange material is riddled with pores just nanometers in size, leaving it 98 percent empty.
