Project designation: GELCLAD

Project ID: 723425

Objective: Highly efficient cladding eco-panels with improved nano-insulation properties.


Start Date: 01/09/2016

End Date: 31/08/2019


Total cost: 5.538.847,50 EUR

EU contribution: 4.791.708,38 EUR


Topic: EEB-01-2016

Call for proposal: H2020-EEB-2016-2017

Funding scheme: IA – Innovation Action


Objetives, activities and expected/achieved goals: The GELCLAD aims at creating a novel cost-effective, durable, industrialised and easy to install composite insulation cladding system, based on a single multi-meso-structured panel with insulation properties, made from functional bio-polymer composite (ecoWPC) as skin coupling with unique advanced foamable extrudable aerogel as insulation layer. GELCLAD wants to target as a novel environmentally friendly multi-functional smart cladding solution, to be used as an ecological alternative to the current cladding and ventilated facade systems.
