Thermulon is the first building insulation material to satisfy the current trade-off between fire-safety, thermal performance and price. Designed from the molecular level up, Thermulon deploys the latest advances in chemical and processing technology into a product that meets the construction industry’s needs in the face of increasing regulatory standards.
Thermulon is the first material to meet new fire and energy-efficiency regulations at a price acceptable to the construction industry.
Thermulon was created as a direct market response to a need from the construction industry. Whilst researching buildings efficiency and sustainable materials at the Deep Science Ventures accelerator in London, Dr. Sam Cryer found that due to new regulation there was a direct market need for a material that was non-combustible, thermally efficient, scalable and price competitive to current alternatives.
With a PhD in nanomaterials from Imperial College, he proceeded to read over 130 academic papers, discuss with more than 40 industry and 30 academic experts, and iterate the product over 12 times to derive a new methodology to synthesise nanoporous materials which matched these aforementioned criteria.
