SHIELD - Development of a novel, low cost fireproof insulation material
The main goal of the SHIELD project is to develop a new high-performance insulation material offering a combination of excellent temperature insulation properties, fire resistance, easy processable by automated processes like spraying and injection. This new material will also show a long term stability in humid environments, a high durability and a low cost.
The SHIELD material will be developed for applications were difficult to reach spaces/parts and complex shapes need to be insulated. Due to its high insulation property, it will also be the material of choice for applications demanding very thin insulation layers.
The SHIELD material will serve demanding end-uses like insulation in high humidity environments and end-uses with high demands on fire resistance and durability.
To prove the concept, the SHIELD material will be evaluated for it’s use in air-ducts, fire doors, high level insulation in the oil and gas industry and household appliances.
