Lumira® aerogel

Lumira® aerogel, formerly Nanogel® aerogel, provides superior insulating capabilities. Made of a dry silica particulate, Lumira aerogel is completely recyclable, eco-friendly, non-combustible, and Cradle-to-Cradle certified. It is a lightweight insulation and daylighting solution that repels water, retains its properties under compression, and can enhance design options and aesthetics. Although aerogel has been around for over 70 years, in 2003, Cabot Corporation began commercialized production of Lumira aerogel. Their continuous production process allows control of the material's pore size and distribution, allowing for Lumira aerogel to be used in a variety of applications.
