What is Aerotherm

AEROTHERM is a new cutting edge green nanotechnology thermal insulation that can be used in everyday products. AEROTHERM’s performance is based on the unique properties of Aerogel which is the main component of AEROTHERM. Aerotherm will protect from extreme cold to extreme heat conditions.

Composed of over 90% air, aerogel is a highly effective insulator with the lowest thermal conductivity of any solid; Aerotherm uses silica aerogel in producing a strong, durable, and flexible material that is 2 to 8 times more effective than traditional thermal insulation.

Aerogel thermal insulating properties are outstanding:

This brings to the best Clo value per unit thickness in comparison with other types of materials:

AEROTHERM aerogel insulation is thin, compression-resistant and waterproof – the ideal choice for outdoor products, individual protective clothes and footwear insulation. AEROTHERM brings space technology into everyday life. Advantages of the AEROTHERM over other types of thermal insulation:

  • Highest thermal performance
  • Minimum thickness allowing thinner design with superior thermal performance
  • Loft not required to maintain R value
  • Doesn’t compress or lose performance under load
  • Durable in normal wash/dry cycle

Other insulation materials require loft to achieve their insulation value. Pressure causes these materials to compress dramatically and lose their loft along with their insulating capacity. Aerotherm does not need loft to deliver its high insulation value and it barely compresses, even in a foot bed under adult weight. At 15 psi pressure, aerogel insulation retains over 95% of its original thickness and over 97% of its original thermal performance. No other insulation can match this performance.

AEROTHERM is high performance insulation used ALONE OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH lofted insulation TO ENHANCE OVERALL THERMAL PERFORMACE. Typically only 2mm thick layer of aerotherm is enough for effective apparel insulation or 3mm thick layer of aerotherm for footwear insulation.
