EcoAerogel

NAM has filed the patent for the innovative and environmentally friendly process  of EcoAerogel production. The project stems from a study carried out on the rice husk ashes, a material obtained by the incineration of a waste of rice processing.

The aerogels presently on the market are little used for their cost, resist up to temperatures of about 600 ° C and possess outstanding properties, including the best possible thermal insulation.

EcoAerogel by NAM while not losing these properties keeps unchanged its characteristics up to temperatures of about 1100 ° C and is obtained by a process that aims to lower both the costs and the environmental impact.

 

AEROGEL IS AN INCREDIBLE MATERIAL BECAUSE OF:
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the highest thermal insulation: architectural and devices insulation, portable coolers, refrigerated transport vehicles, cryogenic devices;

the ultralow density: insulation with minimal weight;

the high temperature resistance: firefighting industry;

the lowest sound speeds: transducers for ultrasonic sensors, range finders, speakers;

the best electric insulation: spacers for vacuum electrodes and vacuum display spacers;

the very high porosity and internal surface area: catalysts, absorbers, sensors, ion exchangers and fuel storage.
