Polymer Aerogel

Blueshift International Materials Inc. is a polymer aerogel manufacturer located in San Marcos, Texas. Our initial product, AeroZero®, is the first commercially available polyimide aerogel in the world. It was developed to meet customer demand for a clean, lightweight, small footprint insulation material. We work closely with our customers to develop customized solutions, tackle application challenges and support innovative designs.

What is Polymer Aerogel?

A polymer aerogel combines the benefits of an aerogel with the conveniences of a plastic (i.e., polymer). As a 100% polyimide material, our AeroZero® polyimide aerogel provides remarkable compression resistance and tensile strength that is unmatched in the industry. AeroZero® offers the flexibility, strength, and safety needed for manufacturing and versatile uses.

The AeroZero® Product Line

Blueshift strives to offer you the best aerogel options on the market. Polyimide aerogel will integrate easily into any product design and manufacturing process. Because AeroZero® is made out of organic polymer it is safe to use and eliminates dusting and dangerous material handling protocols.

Manufacturing Process

Our manufacturing process starts with a polymer compound. Our patented technology creates a strong molecular polymer gel. The polymer gel is shaped with molds or frames. The liquid in the shape is replaced with air to leave a polymer skeleton with nano-scale voids. We have adopted manufacturing technologies to commercialize polymer aerogels.
