What Is Aerogel?

Aerogels are nanoporous, low-density, light-weight materials with unique properties that enable solutions to a wide array of sustainability challenges. Aspen’s aerogel materials may be customized to provide a mix of high thermal resistance, superior fire reaction, a low dielectric constant, strong electric conductivity, hydrophobicity and vapor porosity. Our aerogel technology provides solutions in the toughest environments where other high-performance materials fail.
