In 2016 widespread efforts were made to test Quartzene in customer applications. Feedback from customers has been resoundingly positive. These efforts have also shown that our customers need to focus their development work to integrate Quartzene into their products and harness its full potential. Svenska Aerogel has invested in building up the organisation’s application know-how so that we can offer relevant technical support in customer projects.

Quartzene is a material platform consisting of a number of variants optimised for the application areas in question. Quartzene enjoys great competitive advantages compared to other aerogels. Svenska Aerogel’s flexible manufacturing process enables Quartzene to be take on hydrophilic (water absorbing) or hydrophobic (water repellent) forms as well as to be chemically modified.

The versatility of Quartzene paves the way to a number of qualified applications. The company is now focusing on a larger scale commercial breakthrough and is currently collaborating with customers in four areas of application:

• Paint and coatings

• Thermal Insulation (Heating and Cooling)

• Filtration of Liquids and Gases

• Printability
