Advanced Materials R&D and Manufacturing
American Aerogel, and its packaging division, AeroSafe Global, has created a high performance and proprietary insulation technology called Aerocore®, to protect temperature sensitive shipments. Aerocore® is a vacuum insulated panel (VIP) technology made of an advanced nanoporous open-celled foam material that is ideal for a wide variety of applications. Four products protect sensitive shipments at different ranges: frozen, refrigerated, controlled room temperature, and multi-temperature. As an organic green product, Aerocore® replaces environmentally damaging materials such as polystyrene, polyurethane, and fiberglass. The VIP insulation is manufactured with non-toxic components and reclaims byproducts for reuse. At the end of its life, the insulation will decompose into the equivalent of a handful of nontoxic, easily biodegradable dust.
American Aerogel has participated in the Cornell Center for Materials Research’s JumpStart program.
