Thermablok® Case Studies

Thermablok® Aerogel  Insulation Ideal for Slim Solar Panels


  • Collector pipes insulation for new solar thermal panel developed by Solar Century
  • The panel was required to be super slim (25mm) to replace existing roofing tiles
  • This meant the insulation needed to be about 9mm (Typical panels use 50,, of mineral wool)
  • The temperature range at the collector pipes is 65-200 degrees C (149-392 degrees F) depending on operation cycle

Aerogel Solution

  • The A solution of 9mm of flexible, durable Thermablok®, which meets the thermal performance of 50mm of mineral wool


  • The aerogel solution provided the required thermal performance while minimizing insulation thickness, meeting the key criteria
  • The very low conductive heat generated savings over conventional insulating materials during night hours
  • Thermablok generates no negative VOCs through the operating temperature rant of 65-200 degrees C (149-392 degrees F)
