Small and Light.

With Particle sizes below 20 micron,
JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder is small and optimal for dispersion in various materials. Finest grade powder has particle size below 5 micron, for semiconductor and cosmetic industries.

Each open-cell particle has thousands of air pores ranging in tens of nanometers.
The result is a super light powder with density below 0.1 g/cm3.

Simply put, more than 90% is air!

Thermal Insulation.

Like no other.

Thermal insulation properties of JIOS AeroVa is like no other solid material. Tiny pockets of air inside the powder particle act as a great thermal barrier.

Imagine a bubble warp. Take the bubbles and miniaturize them to a nanometer level. Have millions and billions of them so they are visible to the naked eye. Although the powder itself looks like wheat flour, its structure can be imagined as such.

Thermal conductivity of JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder is below 0.020 mW/mK at room temperature. There’s nothing else like it!

Super Hydrophobic.

JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder is highly repulsive to water. In fact, it is so hydrophobic such that the contact angle of the water droplet is more than 150 degrees!

Superhydrophobic qualities help retain the nano-pore structure when dispersed in various water-based substances, effectively keeping the thermal barrier alive.

When water is spilled on a surface coated with JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder, they form droplet balls that look like marbles. Water droplets will roll right off the surface, leaving the surface stain-free and well protected.

Survives Cold, Hot, and Fire.

JIOS AeroVa is a silica aerogel powder. As such, it has a wide operating temperature range of -200 to +1,600 degrees Celsius. That’s equivalent to -148 to +2,912 degrees Fahrenheit. This versatility makes JIOS AeroVa an attractive performance additive for thermal insulation even in the most extreme circumstances.

Furthermore, it is resistive to fire and therefore, makes an ideal additive for fire resistant and fireproof application materials.

Sound Absorption.

Sound is just another form of energy transfer and just like heat, JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder is excellent at absorbing sound energy and creating a sound barrier.

JIOS AeroVa is the perfect additive for sound insulation applications, especially in the automotive and construction sector. Significant sound absorption, and therefore, noise reduction is observed in the 1,000 ~ 2,000 Hz frequency range, where audible noise from mechanical vibration is concentrated.

High Surface Area.

High Volume.

Thanks to its open-cell structure, the inside and outside surface area of the nano-pores of JIOS AeroVa aerogel powder particle all add up to amount to a very high surface area. The measured BET surface area ranges from 600 to 800 m2/g. This is more than triple its fumed-silica cousin!

This unusually high surface area results in much higher volume when JIOS AeroVa is mixed with liquid compounds, compared to conventional additives. This leads to big cost savings, as only a small amount of JIOS AeroVa is needed to produce the final product volume.
