Your question is very broad and can't be easily answered. There are few existing products, so the answer is also somewhat speculative. Aerogels are a form of material, like foam or dust. It's very likely that a suitable house insulation could be made with an aerogel, almost regardless of the detailed requirements that you have in mind (barring contradictory ...

The rate and types of degradation differ a bit depending on the panels. Common to all types is water ingress within the panel itself, causing corrosion of the wiring. Monocrystalline silicon (aka mono-Si) is very stable, chemically and mechanically; so, to a slightly lesser extent, is polycrystalline silicon (aka multi-Si). The individual cells can have the ...

Aerogels show some promise for use in buildings conductivity is around 0.013 W/mK for commercially available aerogels compared to around 0.04 W/mK for glassfibre quilt and 0.025 W/mK for eps/styrofoam type insulation Toxicity would probably not be an issue due to the generally unreactive nature of silica aerogels The most likely health issue seems to be ...

The overall environmental impact of furniture is largely determined by three factors: Material source; Transport distance from source to consumer; Product lifespan. A sustainable furniture product is therefore made from sustainable materials (certified wood), locally produced and long-lasting. If you have any businesses in your area that make high-quality ...

Available products Aerogels in composites are typically two to four times more thermally insulating than the next-best alternative. And since the recent expiry of some aerogel patents, the number of suppliers of these products has started to increase. The Space Loft and Thermal Wrap products at the site linked in the question are indeed aimed at the ...

There are already aerogels used in residents that are blankets and much more resilient than other legacy products available. They roll out easily and have none of the issues as fiberglass and other insulation materials. The product is amorphous silica so comparable to sand, completely safe and comes in forms that are also waterproof, offer sound dampening ...

If cost was not an issue and you were simply doing it to remove dust then yes cost aside this particular panel although expensive http://www.buyaerogel.com/product/airloy-x103-large-panels/ The H density class is .043W/m-K So I hope that answers your question and this particular panel is also 10-1000x better at acoustic dampening. It should be noted that ...
