Blueshift launches new AeroZero solution.


Blueshift International Materials, Inc. said it has announced a 50 micron thickness of AeroZero(TM), a lightweight, 100 percent-polymer aerogel that is easily incorporated into electronics and composites.

The thinner AeroZero Film enables lightweight, higher-performing products, with superior insulation and RF capabilities.

AeroZero(TM) is a 100 percent polyimide material and combines the benefits of an aerogel with the conveniences of plastic. Unlike traditional polymer film, AeroZero is 90 percent air and comprised of nano-sized pores. Therefore, it provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and has a significantly lower Dielectric Constant than traditional RF materials, making it ideal for radio frequency-based products. Because it is composed of 100 percent polyimide polymer, it provides flexibility in both very hot and cold environments.

Applications for the new 50 micron AeroZero Film include composite structures that require a very thin and lightweight insulation or dielectric layer, such as antennas for electronics, aircraft and satellites. In the consumer realm, sportswear and apparel brands are using AeroZero Films to create more versatile, better performing outerwear, shoes and other products.
