Architects, designers, and building owners are constantly on the lookout for new materials for efficient building insulation that also offer plenty of design freedom. The high-performance insulating material SLENTITE® based on polyurethane aerogel is a heavy-duty panel that delivers efficient and extremely slim insulation. With a lambda value of 17 mW/m•K, it achieves the best-possible insulation for a mechanically strong panel. The panel is suitable above all for interiors. Its excellent moisture regulation adds to a pleasant room-climate. The panel can be handled dust-free and processed just like conventional construction products.
After 18 months of planning and construction, the pilot plant for the manufacturing of SLENTITE® went into operation at the BASF site in Lemförde, Germany. The large-sized insulating panels will initially serve the optimization of the performance profile. They will subsequently be supplied to selected cooperation partners.
