Cabot Aerogel recently introduced its newest daylighting system, Insulated Glass Units with Lumira® aerogel (formerly Nanogel® aerogel). Architects and building owners can now design with the sought-after beauty of glass without the traditional sacrifice of poor thermal performance.
The initial product offerings include a system that can use virtually any specified glass. Designed to work with standard framing systems.
nanoporous microstructure of the aerogel particle
"Cabot's aerogel provides extremely high thermal performance, particularly when compared to many traditional insulation options that rely on trapping still air. The unique nanoporous microstructure of the aerogel particle results in material thermal conductivity of only 11mW/mK - less than half that of still air, that will not degrade with time or temperature."
