EXPLORING THE FUTURE TODAY - MOON HABITAT MISSION
In 2020 SAGA Architects and Armacell set up a moon mission in Arctic Greenland – a practical test of how to make space liveable for future travellers.
The LUNARK Habitat origami lightweight structure was made of ArmaPET® and two layers of ArmaFlex Ultima® protected by ArmaFinish were installed to insulate the internal walls. ArmaFlex Ultima® was the only flexible insulation material to meet the SAGA's design requirements and Greenland’s shelter regulations.

ARMAFLEX ULTIMA - MEET SAGA’S DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
With ArmaFlex Ultima we have set a new safety standard in technical insulation. Based on the patented ArmaPrene™ technology, ArmaFlex Ultima is the first flexible technical insulation material in the world with fire class BL-s1,d0 and exhibits 10 times less smoke in a fire than a standard elastomeric foam. Thanks to its low thermal conductivity and high resistance to water vapour diffusion, closed-cell ArmaFlex Ultima ensures reliable condensation control and high energy savings in the long-term.
