AEROCOINs seeks the development of new superinsulating materials for the construction sector

AEROCOINs, a project coordinated by Tecnalia Research and Innovation, proposes to create a new superinsulating material by overcoming the two major obstacles which have prevented a wide-spread use of silica-based aerogel super-insulation components in buildings and construction. These obstacles are the poor mechanical properties of silica aerogel and the high cost associated with its producti
