Airloy® X103 Large Panels from Aerogel Technologies for Lightweight Plastics Replacements

Airloy® X103 Strong Aerogel Large Panels

$490

Airloy® X100 series materials from Aerogel Technologies are the world's first commercially-available mechanically robust aerogels with the strength to stand up to real-world applications. Airloy X103 is a lightweight plastics replacement material with excellent thermal insulating and acoustic damping properties. Now available in large panels (30 cm x 30 cm x 0.5 cm). At 3-15x lighter than plastics or composites, Airloy X103 is an excellent choice for engineering parts anywhere weight, cost, and heat are coupled. Machinable, water resistant, and dust-free. About 100x stronger in compression than classic aerogels and without the fragility of classic aerogels. Provides 10-1000x better acoustic damping than traditional engineering materials over most audible frequencies. Easy to composite and adhere. Thermally superinsulating with a conductivity between classic silica aerogels and Styrofoam®. Maximum operating temperature is ~80°C.

Smaller sample coupons are also available for smaller projects and low-cost materials evaluation.

For operating temperatures up to 300°C, choose Airloy X114 instead.

Airloys are sold by density. Properties such as strength and stiffness increase with increasing density, while thermal conductivity decreases with decreasing density. Airloy X103 properties scale with density approximately as follows:

Density Class Density Compressive Yield Strengtha Compressive Modulusa Ultimate Strengtha Thermal Conductivitya
L 0.1 ± 0.02 g/cc 0.6 MPa 11 MPa 43 MPa 23 mW/m-K
M 0.2 ± 0.02 g/cc 2 MPa 38 MPa 110 MPa 29 mW/m-K
H 0.4 ± 0.02 g/cc 7 MPa 150 MPa 350 MPa 43 mW/m-K
XH 0.55 ± 0.02 g/cc 13 MPa 300 MPa 630 MPa 56 mW/m-K
