SLENTITE® – High-performance insulation with organic aerogel

SLENTITE® is the first high-performance, polyurethane-based aerogel insulation panel that needs only half the space to do the same job as conventional materials.

By drying a gel a novel mechanically stable organic aerogel is produced which has tiny air-filled but nonetheless open pores measuring only 50 to 100 nanometers in size. Researchers at BASF have thus invented a new insulation material which restricts the movement of air molecules, so that heat transfer is reduced, and at the same time is able to adsorb and release moisture.

The research behind

In this video SLENTITE® researcher Marc Fricke speaks about the idea behind SLENTITE® and explains the course of the project as well as the further development process.

SLENTITE: A panel for all seasons

Slentite⠢ ist die erste Hochleistungsdämmplatte der BASF auf Polyurethanbasis, die bei gleicher Dämmleistung nur halb so viel Platz benötigt wie herkömmliche Materialien. Bei dem organischen Aerogel besteht rund 90 % des Volumens aus mit Luft gefüllten offenen Poren, die lediglich einen Durchmesser von 50 bis 100 Nanometer haben. Dadurch wird die Bewegungsfreiheit der Luftmoleküle einge-schränkt und die Wärme-leitung reduziert. Einsatzgebiete des Hoch-leistungsdämmstoffs sind unter anderem Alt- und Neubauten. Vergröà erung 8000:1 (bei 15 cm Bildbreite).

Slentiteâ ¢ is BASFâ  s first high-performance insulation panel based on polyurethane, which needs only half the space compared to traditional materials while offering the same insulation performance. Up to 90% of the volume of the organic aerogel consists of air-filled pores which have a diameter of only 50 to 100 nanometers. As a result, the air moleculesâ   freedom of movement is limited and the transfer of heat is reduced. The high-performance insulation material can be used, for example, in the construction sector for old and new buildings. Magnification 8000:1 (15 cm in width).
