Aerogel blanket

Aerogel blankets incorporate aerogel particles into ultra-thin, flexible nonwovens with superior insulating properties. Because they offer high insulation performance even when compressed, they are especially useful as a thermal break in places that otherwise conduct heat, such as over studs and around windows

can be field modified and easily installed for use in a wide range of industrial applications such as pipelines, refineries, steam lines, tanks and other equipment

nanoporous microstructure of the aerogel particle

"Cabot's aerogel provides extremely high thermal performance, particularly when compared to many traditional insulation options that rely on trapping still air. The unique nanoporous microstructure of the aerogel particle results in material thermal conductivity of only 11 mW/mK — less than half that of still air, that will not degrade with time or temperature."
