Enova® Aerogel is a highly porous, sponge-like amorphous silica produced by a wet chemical process. It has special, unique properties that silica does not otherwise possess.

Air is trapped in the pores, so there is virtually no convection – so Enova® Aerogel has very low thermal conductivity and better insulating properties than air.

The particles are extremely hydrophobic, the contact angle against water is about 150°. Virtually no water penetrates the particles. At the same time, the material is extremely lipophilic, with oil absorption of approx. 540g/100g of Enova® Aerogel.
Applications include matting agents for systems that are difficult to mat and coatings for thermal insulation.
