More than just insulation – Additional benefits of insulation materials made from renewable raw resources
Working area “Moisture protection” / Subsidiary aspect: Composite thermal insulation systems with materials made from renewable raw resources
Within the framework of the collaborative project “More than just insulation - Additional benefits of insulation materials made from renewable raw resources”, we are investigating a subsidiary aspect within the working area of “Moisture protection”. Renewable raw materials (German: nachwachsende Rohstoffe, “NawaRo”) exhibit a high absorption of moisture, which can be beneficial for their application as an insulation material, particularly in the case of prolonged unfavorable moisture conditions. In this context, we are investigating the subsidiary aspect “Composite thermal systems with insulation materials made from renewable raw resources” (NawaRo-WDVS). Our goal is to determine and scientifically prove the potential positive properties of the insulation materials made from renewable raw resources when used in WDVS systems. We thereby examine, in particular, the significantly superior properties with regard to thermal and moisture absorption in comparison to the so-called conventional insulation materials.
