The Benefits of Choosing Stock Shape
Blueshift AeroZero® has a density of 0.15 g/cm3 which is 1/7th of the density of normal polyimides (1.4 g/cm3). With our patented manufacturing process we are able to achieve a quality and lightweight polymer aerogel with a strong molecular structure.
Polymer aerogel is extremely strong and unlike silica aerogel, AeroZero® can withstand fracturing and uneven pressure. Polymer aerogel is easier to integrate into modern manufacturing processes because it can be cut, sanded, and bonded to other materials.
AeroZero® has a similar machinability index to a balsa wood, which allows it to be easily shaped using conventional blades. Being comprised of an organic polymer our advanced porous material does not contribute significantly to tool wear, and does not contribute to high friction cutting stress.
The thermal conductivity of our advanced porous material AeroZero® is expected to be 30 mW/KM. The thermal conductivity value of AeroZero® is low due to the nano-scale voids which create a thermal break. The nano-scale voids make it more difficult for heat to be transferred both through the material.
Blueshift polymer aerogel has a dielectric constant of 1.25 over 1-10 GHz, which is just 0.25 higher than air. A dielectric constant is the ability of a material to store electricity and determines how disruptive a material is to radio frequencies and energy transfers. The low dielectric constant of AeroZero® allows it to be used in radome designs and in electronics.
As a superior thermal break, AeroZero® can be used to create structures that require low thermal coefficient of expansion in all three dimensions.
