Micro silica aerogel is a highly porous and lightweight material known for its excellent thermal insulation properties. Aerogels are composed of a network of interconnected nanostructures, resulting in a material with extremely low density and thermal conductivity. Silica aerogel, specifically, is made from silicon dioxide and is renowned for being one of the best insulating materials available.

 

Technical Properties of Micro Silica Aerogel

  • Low Thermal Conductivity: Typically around 0.015 W/m·K, making it one of the best thermal insulators.
  • Lightweight: Densities as low as 0.003 g/cm³, significantly lighter than conventional insulating materials.
  • High Surface Area: Surface area can exceed 600 m²/g, providing extensive contact points for thermal resistance.
  • Porosity: Porosity greater than 90%, contributing to its low density and high insulation performance.
  • Hydrophobicity: Often treated to be water-repellent, preventing moisture absorption and maintaining insulation performance.
  • Fire Resistance: Non-combustible and can withstand high temperatures without degrading.

  • Construction:
    • Insulating panels and blankets for building envelopes.
    • Used in energy-efficient homes and buildings to reduce heating and cooling costs.
  • Industrial:
    • High-temperature insulation for furnaces, pipes, and equipment.
    • Insulation for petrochemical and power generation industries.
  • Aerospace:
    • Thermal protection for spacecraft and satellites.
    • Lightweight insulation for aircraft components.
  • Consumer Goods:
    • Insulating layers in clothing and outdoor gear.
    • Thermal liners for containers and packaging.
  • Automotive:
    • Insulation for battery packs and exhaust systems.
    • Thermal management in electric vehicles (EVs).

 

Microsilica Blankets

What is a Microsilica Blanket?

A microsilica blanket is a flexible and highly efficient insulating material made by embedding micro silica aerogel particles within a fibrous matrix. These blankets combine the exceptional insulating properties of aerogels with the flexibility and ease of use of traditional blankets.
