Classic Monolithic (Shaped) Aerogels

Aerogel Technologies is the world’s largest manufacturer of monolithic (shaped) aerogels and the world leader in shape control of aerogel materials. Read more about our products below.

Classic Silica™ aerogels

Our Classic Silica™ aerogel monoliths are the world’s most popular monolithic aerogel material.  We manufacture Classic Silica in a variety of shapes, sizes, and densities, including:

  • Discs, blocks, cylinders, and tiles
  • Densities ranging from 0.04 g/cc to 0.2 g/cc
  • Hydrophilic (water-absorbing) and hydrophobic (water-repelling, see below) formulations

Classic Silica offers advantages for numerous scientific and engineering applications, including:

  • Chemisorption
  • Chromatography
  • Diffusion control media
  • Time-release substrates
  • Battery media
  • Low-profile thermal and acoustic insulation
  • Particle detection (e.g., Cherenkov detectors)
  • High-temperature thermal insulation
  • Optics
  • Materials with engineered electromagnetic properties
  • Demonstrations, education, and curiosity

Hydrophobic Silica Aerogels

Monolithic hydrophobic silica aerogels from Aerogel Technologies are specially formulated to repel polar liquids and sorb non-polar liquids, making them ideal for applications where exposure to moisture, humidity, liquid water or other polar solvents prohibit the use of Classic Silica™ aerogels.  Example applications include:

  • Chemical spill cleanup
  • Chemisorption
  • Chromatography
  • Diffusion control media
  • Time-release substrates
  • Oil recovery
  • Low-profile thermal and acoustic insulation
  • High-temperature thermal insulation
  • Microwave and RF induction heating processes

Aerogel Technologies produces hydrophobic silica aerogels in the same shapes, sizes, and density ranges as our Classic Silica aerogels.

Carbon Aerogel Precursors—RF Aerogels

Carbon aerogels are high-surface-area, electrically conductive porous substrates with tremendous utility in energy storage, catalysis, and carbon materials synthesis applications.  Monolithic resorcinol-formaldehyde polymer (RF) aerogels from Aerogel Technologies are a convenient starting point for preparing engineered high-surface-area carbon architectures of your own.  Applications of RF-derived carbon aerogel materials include:

  • Supercapacitor and ultracapacitor electrodes
  • Battery electrodes
  • Carbon-supported heterogeneous catalysts
  • Carbon nanotube growth catalysts
  • Desalination electrodes
  • High-temperature insulating materials

RF aerogels from Aerogel Technologies are easily converted into carbon aerogels by heat treating under inert atmosphere (pyrolysis) and can be loaded with active materials through facile solution-based and vapor infiltration techniques.

In addition to carbon aerogel preparation, unprocessed RF aerogels are excellent thermal insulators, low-density, and more compliant than comparable density Classic Silica™ aerogels.

Cryogel®, Spaceloft®, and Pyrogel® High-Performance Superinsulating Blankets from Aspen Aerogels

Superinsulating aerogel blankets from Aspen Aerogels offer superior thermal insulation that is three to five times more insulating than polyurethane foam or Styrofoam® per unit thickness in a flexible form factor.  These properties make Aspen Aerogels’ blankets ideal for insulating applications in the oil and gas industry, plants and refineries, construction, and more.  Aspen Aerogels’ aerogel blankets can also be rolled and cut and are hydrophobic (water-repelling) to prevent CUI (corrosion under insulation) that is typical of  insulating materials such as mineral wool and fiberglass.

Aspen Aerogels blankets are available in three general product lines:

  • Cryogel®, optimized for cryogenic applications including cryogenic pipelines, vessels, and OEM and fabricator applications
  • Spaceloft®, optimized for sub-ambient to ambient applications including interior and exterior walls, floors, and roofs in residential, industrial, and modular buildings
  • Pyrogel®, optimzied for high-temperature applications including medium-to-high pressure steam pipes and pressure vessels, aerospace engineering, fire barriers, and welding blankets

Properties of Aspen Aerogels blankets include:

  • Extremely low thermal conductivity (0.15-0.21 W/m-K, depending on product)
  • 0.110-0.180 g/cc (7-11 lbs/ft3) bulk density
  • 150-cm (59″) standard width
  • Delivered on rolls
  • Can be cut and sewn
  • Maximum operating temperatures up to 650°C (1200°F) (product dependent)
