The Spacetherm range of High Performance Laminates provides unrivalled performance for thickness, with a class leading thermal conductivity of 0.013 W/m2K. This outstanding performance is delivered through the use of Aerogel insulation, bonded to various facings, thus providing a traditional thermal laminate board with performance far in excess of anything previously available.
The unique performance of the Spacetherm panels allows the easy upgrading of existing properties with the minimum possible loss of internal space, and without having to resort to expensive and awkward external insulation systems.
Aerogel is a low density solid derived from a gel in which the liquid component has been replaced by gas using a process known as supercritical drying. This results in a material with remarkable insulation properties.
By combining the superinsulation performance of aerogels with the flexibility and robustness of a fibrous blanket, Aspen Aerogels have developed a unique high technology manufacturing process. For the first time this allows the performance of Aerogel to be utilised in a wide range of practical applications.
Historically, use has been limited to industrial and petrochemical, however in partnership with A. Proctor Group Ltd, the high performance of this material will be offered as a unique solution in building and construction applications.
When compared to traditional thermal laminates Spacetherm Panels provide consistently superior thermal performance.
