Pilkington Profilit Insulation
Insulated Channel Glass System
Pilkington Profilit can be filled with Lumira aerogel, a lightweight insulation material produced by Cabot Corporation. The exceptional thermal performance of Lumira aerogel helps increase energy efficiency. Lumira aerogel also promotes soft, even light dispersion, reduces unwanted noise and resists condensation. TGP is the exclusive supplier of Lumira aerogel for channel glass systems.
