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
