Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 15, 2011

 Pre-insulated NanoSun2 pipe presented at the heating fair ISH in Germany” Thin is practical: This can be said about the new pre-insulated NanoSun2 pipe presented by Italian company Aktarus Group Srl at the heating fair ISH in Germany in March. The stainless steel piping is insulated with silica aerogel reinforced by fibre glass. The insulation material is produced in the US by Aspen Aerogels Inc. Thanks to a low thermal conductivity and a thickness of 5 mm, the insulation provides better protection than the common EPDM with a thickness of 13 to 14 mm.
