TAMPA, Florida, December 14, 2011 - Thermablok LLC, makers of Thermablok® aerogel insulating strips, has launched a new website and blog focused on educating consumers on the benefits of utilizing NASA aerogel technology to reduce thermal bridging and lower energy costs.

Thermablok's new website offers a more easily navigated menu for visitors interested in learning more about Thermalok aerogel strips and thermal bridging. It also provides access to Thermablok's parent company, Acoustiblok, Inc. and Acoustiblok soundproofing products.

Thermablok's new blog, will provide information on NASA aerogel technology, thermal bridging, and energy saving measures for the 21st century.

Made in the USA, Thermablok is 100 percent recyclable, impervious to moisture and mold, and unaffected by age. Thermablok President and Founder Lahnie Johnson is proud of the fact that green, energy-conscious architects and builders are currently incorporating this latest answer to energy conservation and reducing CO2 emissions into new building and renovation projects.

Just one, 3/8-inch x 1½-inch (10mm x 38mm) strip of Thermablok aerogel insulation added to only the edge of each stud before hanging drywall breaks the conductive "thermal bridging" and can increase the overall wall R-factor by more than 40 percent(US Department of Energy/JM Laboratories). NASA named Thermablok aerogel insulating material to its prestigious "Spinoff" list of companies that have successfully adapted NASA technology to everyday products and made them available to consumers.

Thermablok is most often used in construction as a preventative measure against thermal bridging. It was most recently used by Rice University student to insulate a portable solar autoclave, providing health practitioners the ability to sterilize medical instruments in Haiti and other impoverished regions worldwide where electricity is unavailable.
