 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The construction industry routinely experiences environments that demand excellent insulation performance – in terms of high humidity or applications demanding high fire resistance. These environments often present complex shapes and limited and difficult to reach space for such insulation materials. Whilst many insulation materials are available commercially, few combine a wide range of high level performance with a low price based on an excellent processability (spraying/injection).

This project aims to address the market ‘gap’ of low-cost, fire-resistant, low-weight insulation materials coupled with excellent processability. It will develop a group of novel insulation materials which exhibit these desirable properties in industrial products by combining clay-nano-composites with supporting additives. The project will develop a suitable processing route for these clay-based insulation materials which minimises production cost by fully automating the spraying/injection production process. The project will develop and test first prototype applications.

It will develop a high-performance insulation material offering a combination of:

• low thermal conductivity (comparable to aerogel materials), • excellent fire resistance, • ease of processing (sprayable or injectable), • hydrophobicity (long term insulation stability in humid environments), • high durability • and low cost.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Insulation that is both fire- and water-resistant is a common need in the construction sector. Unfortunately, high-performance products that are cost-effective and easy to install in hard-to-reach places are not readily available.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Building on nanotechnology and, specifically, clay nanocomposites, EU-funded scientists are filling the market gap with work on the project 'Development of a novel, low-cost fireproof insulation material' (http://www.shield-project.eu/ (SHIELD)). An important pillar of the project's success is application of the insulation with low-cost, automated spray/injection technology.

Within the first nine months, the team developed a nanoclay-based material with low density and low thermal conductivity. Scientists are now working on enhancing mechanical properties of the nanoclay.

In parallel, investigators are developing the inorganic binder and additives to improve materials properties, consistency and processing. Processing is likely to play a critical role in meeting end-user requirements. Future work will focus on processing technology and its contributions to final product properties.

Researchers plan to demonstrate pilot-scale synthesis of the new materials and application of the SHIELD insulation technology in demanding situations. These include air ducts, fire doors, high-level insulation in the oil and gas industry, and household appliances. Technology will open new markets for both materials and processing partners. It will also create an important technology for end users to fill the current gap in available fire-retardant and humidity-resistant insulation for hard-to-reach places.
