Lightweight Components


The thematic area “Lightweight Components” refers to nanotechnologies for multifunctional lightweight construction materials and components and relates five (5) European funded projects: ADAPTIWALL, SESBE, ELISSA, FOAM-BUILD, MF-RETROFIT.

Multi-functional light-weight WALL panel based on ADAPTive Insulation and nanomaterials for energy efficient buildings

ADAPTIWALL focuses on retrofitting by using nanotechnology to develop a multi-functional and climate adaptive panel for energy-efficient buildings.

Smart Elements for Sustainable Building Envelopes

SESBE will provide new solutions for lightweight, energy efficient and safe façade elements.

Energy Efficient Lightweight-Sustainable-Safe-steel Construction

ELISSA targets the development, testing, assessment and demonstration of nano-enhanced lightweight steel skeleton/dry wall systems with improved thermal, vibration/ seismic and fire performance, due to the inherent damping and fire spread prevention properties of carefully preselected inorganic nanomaterials (aerogels, VIPs, MMTs, CNT) and MEMS.

Functional Adaptive Nano-Materials and Technologies for Energy Efficient Buildings

FoAM-BUILD will develop a next generation external thermal insulation composite system (ETICS) including a nano-cellular thermoplastic particle foam to achieve high thermal insulation behavior and a new halogen-free flame retardant to eliminate persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) materials.

MultiFunctional Facades of reduced thickness for fast and cost-effective retrofittinG

 MF-RETROFIT project aims to deal with the numerous requirements of facade panel retrofitting by developing a light-weight, durable, cost effective and high performance panel.
