Aerogel is a synthetic porous ultralight material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component for the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is a solid with extremely low density and low thermal conductivity. … Carbon aerogels were first developed in the late 1980s.
Ultralight ‘Super-Material’ Is 10 Times Stronger Than Steel. A new material is incredibly light yet stronger than steel. The new material gets its amazing strength from its unique geometric configuration. A spongy new super-material could be lighter than the flimsiest plastic yet 10 times stronger than steel.
It’s breathable and fireproof, and it absorbs both oil and water. Aerogel is also amazingly strong, considering its weight. Aerogels can be great electrical conductors, yet when made from different materials, they are also one of the best insulators ever known [source: Steiner, Zero-Gravity].

Cryogel Z


Cryogel Z flexible aerogel blanket insulation is engineered to deliver maximum thermal protection with minimal weight and thickness. It is unmatched in sub-ambient, cold cycling and cryogenic applications. Available in two thicknesses, Cryogel Z incorporates an integral vapor retarder with zero water vapor permeance to ensure maximum asset protection.

The extremely low thermal conductivity of Cryogel Z minimizes heat gain and liquid boil-off. It remains flexible, even at cryogenic temperatures, eliminating the need for complex, costly contraction joints, thereby simplifying and speeding installation. FEED and EPC engineersbenefit from Cryogel Z’s suitability for modular and traditional stick-built construction projects; it can be applied remotely and moved to the job site. It can easily withstand sea and road transport for greater project savings.With its durable format, Cryogel Z withstands mechanical abuse and provides continued protection throughout the life of the asset—plus, its reduced weight make it perfect for legacy sphere and vessel use. Cryogel Z is ideal for both maintenance work and new builds, supporting faster and safer installations with sustained long term performance.

In addition to being the first choice in cold conservation, Cryogel Z offers acoustic attenuation and protections against cold splash, pool fire, and jet fire. The combination of these safeguards make Cryogel Z ideal for applications, including LNG and ethylene gas processing, refrigeration, alkylation, and more. Cryogel Z (IMO Grade) is available on request for offshore and marine applications that require compliance with IMO Parts 2 and 5, and it offers the same combination of thermal, acoustic, and fire performance as standard Cryogel Z.
