The aim og the project is to make and test an apparatus for assembling of evacuated, monolithic silica aerogel and xerogel glazings. Hereby it is expected that a simple and cheap method for industrial production of evacuated aerogel and xerogel glazings can be shown. The project is carried out in two major steps. The first concerns design and manufacturing of the apparatur. The second step will be different tests of the apparatus itself and production of a limited number of aerogel glazings. During several national projects and two EU-JOULE 2 projects, there is developed aerogel and xerogel glazings which have very small cold bridge effect of the rim seal. In order to obtain a fast evacuation of the aerogel/xerogel material, which is crucial at an industrial production, a method has been sketched. And this method is applied in this project. The results of the project will be used to show benefits of the method and the project will serve as input for an EU-JOULE 3 proposal.
