Do you mean the aerogel would not stay on the wall? I would glue it and then think the plaster on top should definitely hold into place.

With their aerogel product claiming R-10 per inch that 10mm equals R-4 so its not really a miracle product, just one that saves some space.

You'd have to contact the man'f for details on distribution of through-ties required and grade of lath mesh (if any) required - and request a sample!

Remember this stuff is 'frozen smoke' that has been formed into a conglomerate sheet designed for 'compression damage resistance' but not stretching.

Anyone tried aerogel insulation?

I currently have my inner skins off and am considering using an aerogel blanket in conjunction with a thermal break on each of the ribs and cross members. It's expensive, but if I have everything that far apart why not do it the best way possible.

The primary drawback to aeogel is its extreme porosity. All it takes in one roof leak and your aerogel would become a sponge. That water would soak in and never come back out.

My understanding is that the newest lines of aerogel blankets are hydrophobic.

Honestly, I haven't had a chance to work on my AS in a while. Life kinda gets in the way sometimes. I'm definitely going to look into this more when I'm ready to move forward.
