SLENTEX® is an easy-to-process and non-combustible material based entirely on mineral raw materials. As a single-layer, flexible mat, it is now available for a variety of applications in the construction and modernization sectors.
The novel high-performance insulation, an inorganic aerogel, has been developed in many years of cooperation with Aspen Aerogels Inc. in the USA. Since 2016, there has also been an intensification of cooperation with BASF in the field of aerogel-based insulation materials.
