FoAM-BUILD

Functional Adaptive Nano-Materials and Technologies for Energy Efficient Buildings

The FoAM-BUILD project will develop a next generation External Thermal Insulation Composite System (ETICS). A new, lightweight and high insulating nano-cellular foam including a non-halogenated nano-based flame retardant will be developed. Also a moisture control system, based on a sensor network which measures moisture and liquid water on the façade will be developed to prevent microbiological growth on the façade.
