BASF is showing at K show its innovative, super-slim high-performance insulation materials in new applications. The innovative high-performance products Slentite and Slentex are a new generation of energy-efficient aerogel-based insulation materials with outstanding material properties. The company is presenting new examples of applications in carbon concrete facade elements and motorhomes.
Slentex is an easy-to-process and non-combustible material based entirely on mineral raw materials. As a single-layer, flexible mat, it is now available for a variety of applications in the construction and modernization sectors. With a λD value of 19 mW/m • K, the material achieves much lower thermal conductivity than conventional mineral insulation materials and permits the construction of very slim wall structures. Beneficially, the material is non-combustible, has an A2-s1, d0 fire class, and is ETA-certified. It also permits the diffusion of water vapor (μ ~ 5) while also being hydrophobic, thus making it ideal for facade applications.
" examples of applications in carbon concrete facade elements and motorhomes" Awesome! No Oxford comma. I can dig a geo-polymer motor home.

Basalt geo-mesh embedded in a polymerized sandstone matrix a fraction of an inch thick.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night, Removes the colours from our sight, Red is grey and yellow white, But we decide which is right, And which is an illusion.
