What is Thermoblock insulation?
Thermablok aerogel insulation is made up of a composite material consisting of aerogel embedded within a fiberglass type matrix. Available in plastic encased strips (optional self-adhesive)that attach easily to the stud, Thermablok maintains its R-value over time, under a wide range of conditions.
What is the R-value of Aerogel?
Aerogel is an extremely good thermal insulator, which at a pressure of one-tenth of an atmosphere has an R-value of R-40/m, compared to R-3.5/m for a fiberglass blanket.
What is the best flexible insulation?
Cellulose insulation is perhaps one of the most eco-friendly forms of insulation. Cellulose is made from recycled cardboard, paper, and other similar materials and comes in loose form. Cellulose has an R-value between R-3.1 and R-3.7.
What is the most cost effective home insulation?
Closed-cell spray foam has the highest R-value of any insulation, up to R-6 per inch. It takes up less space than fiberglass or blown-in insulation. It can also save up to $500 a year in energy costs.
What is the R in Corona?
What is R? The R number is a way of rating coronavirus or any disease’s ability to spread. R is the number of people that one infected person will pass on a virus to, on average.
How tall is a marmox thermoblock thermal insulation block?
The standard block thickness in the UK as a 65mm high block, this is because this is the typical UK brick height and this thickness has been designed to give the necessary insulation required. To achieve an R Value of 2, we can also manufacture a 100mm thick version.
What kind of insulation is thermablok made out of?
Thanks to its hydrophobic properties, Thermablok will not age, mold, or mildew. Thermablok uses an amorphous silica (distinctly different from crystalline silica) aerogel insulating material which is environmentally safe and recyclable.
Is the thermoblock 100mm thick available in the UK?
PLEASE NOTE: ‘Thermoblock 100mm thick’ is not stocked in the UK. It is made to order and therefore there is a 6 – 8 week lead time. Standard versions are always kept in stock but if you require this version you should order a couple of months in advance.
What is the Y value of a thermoblock?
Made of a strong and rigid epoxy-concrete frame that is integrated with fire-resistant XPS that gives the outstanding thermal insulation providing y values of between 0.03 to 0.07W/mK. Although Thermoblocks are lightweight they are extremely strong and stable having a mean compressive strength of 9.0N/mm 2 so can be used in most walls.
