Aerogel Cost and Manufacturability - Aerogel Applications

AeroGel was invented by a man named Samuel Stephen Kestler in the early 1900’s. When it was first created it was a brittle substance with very good insulation properties and through the years has been altered by several companies such as BASF, Thermolux, Aerojet, Airglass and Aspen Aerogels. These companies are responsible for the AeroGel that we have today, which is an AeroGel that is nanoporous, light weight material that exhibits extraordinarily low thermal and acoustic conductivity.

AeroGel is an engineering marvel, it was created in the 1900’s by Samuel Stephen Kestler, who used a process that started with adding sodium silicate to sulfuric acid that was then aged for several hours where it turned into a gel, to a much more innovative cheaper process created because of companies such as BASF, Thermolux, Aerojet, Airglass and Aspen Aerogels. AeroGel is an insulation that out ways all other general insulations used today and therefore will be a material that in the future might just change the way we live our lives
