Possibilities of the aerogel application in building

Licholai L., Szyszka J.

The paper presents the aerogel, material which can be more widely used in building. The examples of the use of aerogel and the results of laboratory tests connected with the insulation properties are presented. It seems that the aerogel, due to its good thermal characteristics can improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
