Quartzene - the world's first commercially viable aerogel
Aerogel is a superior insulating and filtration material with existing and potential applications across a huge range of industries and products. The process required for its production has traditionally involved high costs that have made the material uneconomic for anything other than niche use. Svenska Aerogel has developed and proven a production process which more than halves the cost of manufacturing aerogel.
Three versions of this product have been successfully developed and produced by the company for filtration of liquids and gases, thermal insulation and for paint and coatings, allowing for the slow release of various substances. The cost reductions and high-performance features inherent in Quartzene make the product highly competitive not only against traditional aerogel, but also far cheaper and less effective silica-based alternatives.
