Isolatietip:

  • Bluedec can withstand a beating. It can be walked on without damaging the material
  • Bluedec may well distributed pressure load record. The 10% elongation limit pressure is around 60 kPa. This makes it an excellent insulation for under floor heating.
  • Bluedec Standard screens have a fire class C, suitable for many applications in construction. Do you have a higher fire rating needed? Please contact us.
  • Bluedec may well distributed pressure load record. The 10% elongation limit pressure is around 60 kPa. This makes it an excellent insulation for under floor heating.
  • a low (10mm) of Bluedec inside a double brick wall without cavity, the energy loss through that wall almost halved

What is aerogel?

aerogelAerogel is processed into a textile tissue using a high-tech process. The tissue is impregnated with a silicon hydrogel. The fluid is removed under supercritical conditions. The process results in a flexible sheet of aerogel. We import it to Europe as a semi-finished product. The product then undergoes a number of processes so that it does not give off dust. The processes also result in different lamination possibilities. This allows us to offer you the right quality of sheet for many different applications.

The production of aerogel is done by applying high temperature and pressure to normal silicon hydrogel (among other things known for the grains that often come in packaging to protect the contents against moisture) until it reaches the supercritical phase: at that point there is no longer any distinction between the liquid and gas phase of the material. The supercritical fluid is then removed: because the fluid is supercritical, there is no more gas-liquid interface, meaning that there is no longer any surface tension. This makes it possible to remove the liquid without damaging the polymer structure of the gel. Once the fluid is gone, the spaces between the polymer chains are filled with air, resulting in aerogel. The material is remarkably strong: it can support up to 1500 times its own weight.

One physical property of silicon aerogel is an average density of 0.001 mg/cm3. This is the lowest density that has ever been measured for a solid material. The temperature tolerance range is from –273 °C to 650 ° (melting point > 1200 °C). The thermal conductivity coefficient is 0,011 W/mK at 20°C. This is extremely low. This makes it is a very effective insulation material.
