In the mechanical insulation world, we are familiar with insulation being used for Sound Attenuation. The main purpose is to isolate sound to the equipment, machine, pipeline or enclosure. Applications involving Acoustical Treatments present additional opportunities and challenges. Materials including insulation used on both the exterior and interior of the room must be carefully selected.
Innovations are a long time coming in the insulation world and that is what makes the arrival of the Aerogel products most interesting. Aerogels make use of Nanotechnology to produce nano-porous solids. This was invented in the 1930’s. It should be noted that only the air pockets are nano sized, not the actual particles. Aerogels are an amorphous silica that gets
