Our Pyrogel® and Spaceloft™ materials were born in the mid to late
1990’s when development was initiated for NASA. In the cold dark vacuum
of space, maintenance of body temperature is critical, yet spacesuits must be
flexible and light to allow for freedom of movement. NASA found or aerogels to
be a perfect fit, and so will you.
Unlike all other insulations for footwear and apparel applications that rely
on decades old textile, foam or fiber technology, the insulating power of our
materials is derived from space age aerogel technology. This technology yields
materials with a sub nanoporous lattice structure that has a very high surface
area and billions of irregularly shaped pores per unit of material. As such, as
noted in the chart above, aerogels have anywhere from two to six times more insulating
power than other commonly used materials.
Thin, Lightweight Flexible Materials for Footwear and Apparel
all other materials rely on high thickness or loft to provide their insulation
value, our aerogels do not. Spaceloft and Pyrogel provide higher insulation values
at greatly reduced loft.
For example, in order to maintain stylish designs and functional performance,
in Footwear applications there is very little space available for insulation,
yet most of us are familiar with how quickly cold feet can spoil an outdoor adventure.
Our Pyrogel AR5401, a carbon filled aerogel, leads the way in the industry by
providing manufacturers with the ability to significantly upgrade the performance
of their footwear and cold weather products, while increasing the freedom for
design and other functional elements. The carbon also helps absorb odor.
to its high insulation efficiency, the Elite Forces of the US Military and The
Canadian National Ski Team found that Shock Doctor Hotbed inserts with only 2.5mm
of Pyrogel AR5401 provided an unmatched level of warmth and comfort in cold weather
events and operations.

These same inserts were also used by renowned fitness expert Sean Burch who
noted that they kept his feet comfortable at -35°F, even while wearing just
trail shoes during his record setting North Pole Marathon performance.
Further, as shown on the chart below, this high level of performance is not
compromised under load:
Note that even under the minimal force of 1 PSI applied in standard thermal
testing, popular microfibers can lose up to 75% of their thickness and insulating
power, while our aerogel maintains its original thickness.
Compressive loads applied to footwear and apparel during use are significantly
higher than 1 PSI, so while other materials begin to falter, you can count on
our aerogels to continue to deliver their high insulating power.
Spaceloft™: Space Tech Brought to Earth
Used EXTENSIVELY in aerospace applications,
Spaceloft™ is the warmest insulator in existence: panels only 3mm thick can
insulate your body in temperatures as low as 50° below zero.
Spaceloft™ is the lightest solid on earth. If left uncontained, Spaceloft™
particles will actually float on air.
Engineered to deliver targeted protection to vital areas of you body, The Katana’s
liner will help you ride longer, warmer, and more comfortably than any other insulator

Straight form NASA to you. Spaceloft™ by Aspen Aerogels insulation is considered
by leading technology experts as the best insulation material known to man. Used
in Nasa's launch vehicles, Spaceloft™ can hold up under temperatures of minus
50° F — where you would freeze to ice in a damn hurry.
