Edible Food Packaging Made From Milk Proteins
Most foods at the grocery store come wrapped in plastic packaging. Not only does this create a lot of non-recyclable, non-biodegradable waste, but thin plastic films are not great at preventing spoila...
How we discovered 'impossible' material that both conducts electricity – and doesn't
We may have to rewrite physics textbooks after a material that can act both like a conductor and an insulator simultaneously has been discovered.
New diamond aerogel is so light that it's like "frozen smoke" made of diamonds
Researchers have figured out a way to make diamond aerogel. The aerogel is only 40 times as dense as air. Someday, it may coat the windows, the TV, and the inside of a person's body.
Graphene aerogel is seven times lighter than air, can balance on a blade of grass
Chinese material scientists have created the world's lightest material: A graphene aerogel that is seven times lighter than air, and 12% lighter than the previous record holder (aerographite). A cubic...

Aerogel
Aerogel is a synthetic porous ultralight material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is a solid with extremely low density and low th...
Building insulation materials
Building insulation materials are the building materials which form the thermal envelope of a building or otherwise reduce heat transfer.Insulation may be categorized by its composition (natural or sy...
Thermal insulation
Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer (the transfer of thermal energy between objects of differing temperature) between objects in thermal contact or in range of radiative influence. Th...

Vacuum insulated panel
A vacuum insulated panel (VIP) is a form of thermal insulation consisting of a nearly gas-tight enclosure surrounding a rigid core, from which the air has been evacuated. It is used in building const...
Shinsulator
A shading insulator, or shinsulator, is used to cover a thermal mass (e.g. roof pond) and insulate the thermal mass as needed, either by re-radiating escaping heat back down towards the thermal mass, ...
Styrofoam
Styrofoam is a trademarked brand of closed-cell extruded polystyrene foam currently made for thermal insulation and craft applications. It is owned and manufactured by The Dow Chemical Company.In the ...
Haircloth
Haircloth is a stiff, unsupple fabric typically made from horsehair and/or from the wooly hair of a camel. Although horsehair generally refers to the hair of a horse's mane or tail, haircloth itself i...
Exhaust Heat Management
Exhaust Heat Management is the means of lessening the negative effects of internal combustion engine exhausts by preventing heat from escaping the exhaust system on automobiles.
The fact that exha...
Insulated glazing
Insulated glazing (IG), more commonly known as double glazing (or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing/pane) are double or triple glass window panes separated by an air or other gas filled sp...
Pipe insulation
Pipe Insulation is thermal or acoustic insulation used on pipework.
Where pipes operate at below-ambient temperatures, the potential exists for water vapour to condense on the pipe surface. Moist...
Building insulation
Building insulation refers broadly to any object in a building used as insulation for any purpose. While the majority of insulation in buildings is for thermal purposes, the term also applies to acous...
Shahmina
Shahmina (Persian for "emperor's wool") refers to a type of shawl made from Pashmina (Cashmere) wool with an average fibre diameter of 13 micrometres. Shahmina shawls are hand spun, woven on only han...
Chalcogel
A chalcogel or properly metal chalcogenide aerogel is an aerogel made from chalcogens (the column of elements on the periodic table beginning with oxygen) such as sulfur and selenium, with cadmium, te...
Thermal pad
Thermal pads or ground pads are thin, lightweight pads that are common among hikers, backpackers and budget travelers. In its simplest form a thermal pad consists of a foam-like material that is abou...
Fill power
Fill power is a measure of the loft or "fluffiness" of a down product that is loosely related to the insulating value of the down. The higher the fill power the more air an ounce of the down can trap,...
Window insulation
Windows provide us with the natural light that we all need; and also with ventilation, heat gains and views. But windows are also a major source of energy loss or unwanted heat gains – something that ...
Insulated staple
A staple is a type of two-pronged fastener, usually metal, used for joining or binding materials together. Large staples might be used with a hammer or staple gun for masonry, roofing, corrugated boxe...
Acoustic foam
Acoustic foam is an open celled foam used for acoustic treatment. It attenuates airborne sound waves by increasing air resistance, thus reducing the amplitude of the waves. The energy is dissipated as...
