Airloy® X103 Strong Aerogel

Airloy® X103 Strong Aerogel Tiles

$90

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 comes in densities up to fifteen times lighter than plastics (about the same density as our Classic Silica aerogels) yet is about 100x stronger in compression than classic aerogels and without the fragility of classic aerogels. Resistant to contact with moisture and liquid water. Dust-free. Provides 10-1000x better acoustic damping than traditional engineering materials over most audible frequencies. Easy to machine and adhere. Thermally superinsulating with a conductivity between classic silica aerogels and Styrofoam®. Maximum operating temperature is ~80°C.  Dimensions are approximately 2″ x 3″ x 0.3″ (5 cm x 7.5 cm x 0.7 cm). Larger sizes coming soon.

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 Strengtha Compressive Modulusa Ultimate Yield 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

aApproximate values. For reference only.

Large Airloy X103 panels are also available for making bigger engineering parts.

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