Roofing manufacturer to use nano product

May 12, 2005 — Centerpoint Translucent Systems LLC, a Knoxville, Tenn.-based manufacturer and distributor of residential roofing products, today announced a product supply and marketing agreement with Cabot Corp. to use Cabot’s Nanogel translucent aerogel in Centerpoint’s roofing structures. The translucent roofs allow natural, filtered daylight to penetrate into home living areas without the energy loss associated with traditional glass roof inserts.

Cabot, a chemicals and materials company headquartered in Boston, created Nanogel in part to insulate thermally inefficient glazing systems. The aerogel is based on Cabot’s surface modification and fine-particle manufacturing technology. Nanogel is manufactured exclusively by Cabot in Frankfurt, Germany.
