Benefits of AeroZero® as an ingredient in Composite Materials
AeroZero’s® unique material properties empower innovative composite material designs. With a density of 0.20 g/cm3, 86% lower than the density of normal polyimides (1.4 g/cm3), AeroZero® will offer structural integrity while decreasing total weight.
AeroZero’s® low thermal conductivity makes it an ideal material to use in composite structures subject to a wide temperature envelope. With an expected thermal conductivity of just 30mW/KM, the nanoscale voids that make up AeroZero® significantly slow heat to transfer through the substance.
AeroZero®’s dielectric constant is 1.24 – 1.26 with a very low loss tangent of 0.0006-0.0009 over 1 – 50 GHz which is just 0.15 higher than air itself. As a material with superior thermally insulative capabilities, our polymer aerogel offers revolutionary properties for the radome, radar, and electronics industries.
AeroZero® possesses impressive mechanical strength relative to its density. When used in multilayer structures, AeroZero® provides outstanding mechanical durability in a wide operating temperature envelope.
With a machinability index comparable to balsa wood, and no toxic dusting when cut, AeroZero® is an easy material to work with and integrate into existing manufacturing processes.
