A new slim composite insulation system, called StoTherm In Aevero, comprises a composite board combining Cabot’s aerogel particles for energy-savings performance with Sto’s binder and composite technology, resulting in an insulation board that offers greater energy efficiency than traditional materials.

According to Cabot, their aerogel enables an ultra-low thermal conductivity of 0.016 W/mK (R9). They also explain that Sto’s innovative binder technology and the system design afford permeability and moisture management, thereby managing humidity according to building requirements. The thin profile of the product allows improved insulation especially when interior space is at a premium.

“The growing importance of conserving energy, both from an environmental and cost perspective, requires us to develop products with superior thermal performance like Cabot aerogel,” said Fred von Gottberg, Cabot Vice President, New Business Segment. “The collaboration with Sto is another example of Cabot’s dedication to creating technical partnerships that result in innovative products containing Cabot’s aerogel products that significantly exceed the performance of traditional insulation materials.”

“The cooperation with Cabot during the development of the StoTherm In Aevero board product brought together Cabot’s profound experience in all aspects of aerogel technology and Sto’s formulation, design and testing experience in the area of construction insulation systems and components,” said Andreas Weier, Sto Vice President R&D. “Such cooperative approaches are our most promising chance to bring new and valuable solutions to our customers.”
