Armacell’s vision has always been to create innovative, technical insulation solutions and components to conserve energy and make a difference around the world. With aerogel that vision is now a reality.
As the name suggests, aerogel is a solid derived from gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with air making it dry and porous. In fact, over 90% of the volume is empty space making aerogel the world’s lightest solid material. It’s also 1,000 times less dense than glass, making it the world’s lowest density solid material.
Launched in 2018, ArmaGel HT opens up new application opportunities and end markets, in particular as a reliable and safe solution for operating temperatures from -180°C to +620°C.
