Why does aerogel powder have gel properties
What is Aerogel Powder?Aerogel has the world's lowest density. The density is set at 3 kg/m3. Kistler and his friends first created the silicon gel aerogel in 1931. Aerogels come in many forms, such as silicon, carbon or sulfur. Aerogel is actually a compound. Aero is an adjective that means "in air." A gel is a gel. It means air gel. This is the term for aerogel.
Aerogel powder as thermal insulation material
The fine network structure of aerogel silicon effectively limits the spread of local thermal excitement, and its thermal conductivity solid is 2-3 orders lower than glassy materials. The nano-pores in silicon aerogel inhibit gas molecules from contributing to heat conduction. The silicon aerogel's refractive indices are close to 1, and its ratio of the annihilation factor of visible and infrared is greater than 100. It can pass through sunlight, and stop the infrared radiation from the ambient temperature. It has been proven to be an ideal transparent thermal insulating material, and is used for solar energy and building energy saving. The radiant heat conduction in silicon aerogel is further reduced by doping. Thermal conductivity can be as low at 0.013w/m*K for aerogels doped with carbon, when room temperature and pressure are normal. This is the material that has the lowest thermal conductivity. It will replace polyurethane as a refrigerator insulation material. Silica Aerogel can become a new material for high-temperature thermal insulation by adding titanium dioxide. Thermal conductivity of 800K is just 0.03w/m*K. This material will be further developed to support military products.
Aerogel powder in energy storage devices
After the sintering procedure, the organic aerogel gel becomes carbon aerogel. This conductive porous carbon material is a newly developed carbon material after fibrous active carbon. The material has a large surface (600-1000m2/g) as well as a high level of conductivity (10-25s/cm). Moreover, the density of this material varies from 0.05 to 1.0 g/cm3. Imagine an appropriate electrolyte has been poured into the micropores. A new rechargeable lithium-ion battery could be created. It would have excellent properties such as high storage capacity and low internal resistance. It is also lightweight and has strong charging and discharge ability. The preliminary experimental findings show that the carbon aerogel's charging capacity reaches 3x104/kg2, its power density is 7kW/kg, while the performance of repeated charging/discharging is excellent.
Prices of aerogel powder
Aergel powder's price is affected by its particle size, purity, and purchase volume. The price of a large quantity will be lower. On our official website, you can find the price of Aerogel Powder.
