In cooperation with Dr. Luca & Partner, Masa GmbH can offer a new manufacturing method for a mineral insulation panel under the brand name Masa-LithoPore® Technology. The cooperation aims at an integration of two different core competences. On the one hand, this is the manufacture of the unique biotechnological additives under the brand name LithoFoam® of Dr. Luca & Partner, on the other hand the engineering and construction competence for the manufacture of aerated concrete of Masa GmbH.
This successful cooperation resulted in the development of a new type of insulating panel that can be manufactured with a thermal conductivity of less than 0,05 W/(mK) and a strength of up to 450 kPa. Thus, a new product is available that unites all advantages of a mineral building material:
- Directly recyclable together with the wall building material, no problems of disposal as in case of polystyrene panels
- Fire protection classification A1, non-combustible
- Open to vapour diffusion, thus breathable
