Thermal Protection Systems
AeroZero® Polymer Aerogel Technology Platform
Blueshift designs, develops, and manufacturers AeroZero Thermal Protection Systems (AZ-TPS) based on our core AeroZero® polyimide aerogel film technology. AZ-TPS are installed in aerospace and defense systems when challenging temperature or space restrictions exist that impede the use of legacy insulators. AZ-TPS are ideal for hot spot elimination and control of heat flow within confined spaces. They are designed for high heat and tight space applications, most of them having less than 1 mm of available head space.
Developing Solutions Together
Blueshift Materials, Inc. developed and manufactures in a roll-to-roll format a thin, high performance polymer aerogel film called AeroZero® and AeroZero laminates. AeroZero is 80-85% air, and the company has branded it Structured Air. The film thus has low density, high porosity, extremely low dielectric constant and loss tangent, and extremely low thermal conductivity. AeroZero retains most of the key properties of polyimide: wide operating temperature range (-200 C to +260 C), inherent flame retardancy, etc. Polyimides are widely accepted in aerospace and electronics applications.
