Nanoporous Silica Nano-T Composite

Nanoporous silica

Overview: Nanoporous Silica Nano-T Composite

Nanoporous ceramic are extremely light products for insulation purposes. Their high insulation capacity is a direct result of their nanoporous structure. There are only temporary contacts between particles and the surface ratio is the lowest possible. As a result, the thermal conduction between solid particles is reduced to a minimum. Nanopores also limit convective heat transfer.

All these characteristics make this type of material more efficient than conventional insulating materials such as mineral fibres, refractory bricks and other inorganic products.

This product consists of silica and opacifying agents to minimize infrared radiation.

This material can be protected by various types of packaging, in order to facilitate its use and conservation. For example, PE film or aluminium foils can be employed as a reinforcing material. This packaging also protects the product against mould. Nano T must also be protected against liquids, which may destroy its nanoporous structure.
