Another step towards practical superinsulation? Cabot launches new aerogel additives for coatings

By / March 29, 2011

Cabot’s Enova 3110 aerogel particles. Credit: Cabot. In my mind, the holy grail for thermal insulation is a practical (i.e, inexpensive and easy to use) product that incorporates silica-based aerogel, and, at first glance, Cabot’s new Enova line of aerogel particles appears to be a step in the right direction. Bulk silica aerogel is a…
