CorePro Systems has been actively involved with aerogel insulation since its arrival in the UK in early 2006 working for Aspen Aerogels in UK market and business development plus sales and product design for individual and specific applications.

Aspen Aerogel’s Spaceloft insulation is a flexible, nanoporous aerogel blanket insulation designed to meet the demanding energy conservation requirements of residential and commercial building applications. An ideal product for low energy buildings and Passivhaus and applications where limited space is available for thermal insulation

Spaceloft’s unique properties, extremely low thermal conductivity, superior flexibility, compression resistance, hydrophobicity, and ease of use make it essential for those seeking the ultimate in thermal protection.
Using patented technology, Spaceloft insulation combines a silica aerogel with reinforcing fibres to deliver industry-leading thermal performance in an easy to handle and environmentally friendly product. Spaceloft products are a proven, effective insulation in building applications, providing maximum energy efficiency in walls, floors, roofs, and framing.

  • Superior thermal performance Up to three times better thermal performance than competing insulation products
  • Reduced thickness and profile Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness
  • Less time and labour to install Easily cut and conformed to complex shapes, tight curvatures and spaces with restricted access
  • Physically robust Soft and flexible but with excellent springback, Spaceloft recovers its thermal performance even after compression loads as high as 50 psi (345 kN/m2)
  • Shipping and warehousing savings Reduced material volume, high packing density, and low scrap rates can reduce logistics costs by a factor of three or more compared to rigid board and preformed insulations
  • Hydrophobic yet vapour permeable Spaceloft repels liquid water but allows vapour to pass through
  • Environmentally friendly Landfill disposable with no respirable fibre content
  • Thermal conductivity (l) Spaceloft insulation has the lowest thermal conductivity of any thermal insulation in today’s market 0.015W/mK

Utilise the benefit of Aerogel Spaceloft in its original large roll format.
Use full or part rolls in 1.5 metre widths.

Lay conventional screed, UFH spreader screed or slab directly over the Spaceloft.

Alternatively roll out Aerogel Spaceloft carpet style, cut to length and lay screed, screed boards or T&G chipboard directly over in standard floating floor application.

Finish with tiles, engineered wood flooring, flexible flooring, vinyl or carpet.

Ideal for underfloor heating (UFH) applications
