AcoustiBlok has launched Thermablok, a new aerospace technology which claims to drastically increase thermal insulation in the construction industry.
Just one thin 9mm x 3mm strip of Thermablok added to only one edge of studs in a wall can increase the insulation value by over 40%, according to the US Department of Energy test results.
The US-made thermal nano technology is currently used as heat shielding on the space shuttle and in the space suit where it is subject to the most extreme temperature differences, and promises the highest insulation properties of any material known to exist (13.5mW/m.k. or 0.0078 BTU/ft-hr-F).
While a typical 3.5” (89mm) of insulation in a stud wall has an R value of 13, using 3 ½” of this technology, could produce an amazing R value of 105 in the same space.
The majority of thermal transmission in a standard insulated stud wall travels through the mechanical link, usually the studs.
Thermablok, which is 99.8% air, interrupts this thermal path quickly and economically. Installation of the product is accomplished by attaching the product to the stud edge before drywall or sheeting is put up.
Thermablok comes with a simple pull and stick adhesive back for easy, clean installation. No messy adhesives required.
