Special Thermal Insulation Methods of Building Constructions with Nanomaterials

Journal Title: Acta Technica Jaurinensis - Year 2016, Vol 9, Issue 1


Nanotechnology-based materials have previously been used by space research, pharmaceuticals and electronics, but in the last decade several nanotechnology-based thermal insulation materials have appeared in the building industry. Nowadays they only feature in a narrow range of practice, but they offer many potential applications. These options are unknown for the most architects, who may simply be afraid of these materials owing to the incomplete and often contradictory special literature. Therefore, they are distrustful and prefer to apply the usual and conventional technologies. This article is intended to provide basic information about nanotechnology-based thermal insulation materials for designers. It describes their most important material properties, functional principles, applications and potential usage options in building construction.
