WHAT IS AEROGEL?

LIKE NO OTHER MATERIAL ON EARTH!

© 2016 Aspen Aerogels | Confidential & Proprietary

WHAT IS AEROGEL? •

Aerogel is a nanoporous solid invented in the 1930’s

Aerogel is derived from gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with gas •

The result is an extremely low density solid with several remarkable properties •

When the liquid is removed, what remains is “puffed-up sand”, with up to 99% porosity

Most notably its effectiveness as a thermal insulator

The nanopores cage air molecules, retarding heat flow

Average aerogel pore size is 5,000X smaller than that of traditional insulations Atom

AEROGEL FOR INSULATION Aerogel’s unique properties make it an ideal insulator - but in its native state it is extremely fragile

The process of creating aerogel in a lab can be very time consuming

The Aerogel Advantage Aspen Aerogels took aerogels from the lab to a highly effective industrial insulation product • Casting the wet gel into a fibrous batting provided mechanical integrity • Supercritical CO2 extraction reduced cycle times from months to hours

© 2016 Aspen Aerogels | Confidential & Proprietary

Superinsulation performance in a flexible blanket form

9


MAKING PYROGEL® AND CRYOGEL® INSULATION

Step 1: Fill fibrous batting with a liquid-solid solution Step 2: Extract liquids with supercritical carbon dioxide

Blanket typically consists of nonwoven polyester, e-glass

Step 3: Resulting dry, fiber-reinforced aerogel blanket Liquid dries into a wet gel

After drying blanket is rolled onto a spool © 2016 Aspen Aerogels | Confidential & Proprietary

RESISTING THE ENEMIES OF INSULATION HEAT – Pyrogel is Thermally Stable High temperatures can destroy fibrous insulations by burning out the organic binders. Pyrogel does not use organic binders, so will not crumble or sag in hot service.

WATER – Pyrogel is Moisture Resistant During Katrina, an aerogel insulated pipe was flooded with sea water. Afterward, the pipeline was drained, dried, and retested with no degradation. That pipe was then sealed, and is now in service off the coast of Africa.

MECHANICAL ABUSE – Pyrogel and Cryogel are Damage Tolerant Pyrogel and Cryogel easily withstand most impact or compressive loading events and will spring back to the original performance even at loads > 100 psi. Plus, because there is no brittle failure mechanism (its a flexible blanket), damage remains local and will not propagate. © 2016 Aspen Aerogels | Confidential & Proprietary

HEALTH AND SAFETY


STEPS FOR SAFE WORKING WITH PYROGEL & CRYOGEL Understand the Data

Review our SDSs Most industrial insulations advise the use of PPE in specific circumstances to process and install safely.

Use PPE for Personal Comfort

If you wear a dust mask - Use a P100 or N100 grade. If your skin starts to feel dry try using a barrier cream. Gloves are great but make sure they fit correctly.

Follow Recommended Guidelines Wash hands using mild soap and water before meals. Launder work wear as usual - no special cleaning needed.

HPS PRODUCT DATA SHEET

Flexible Aerogel Insulation for Industrial Applications Optimal thermal performance in service up to 650°C (1200°F) Pyrogel® HPS is engineered to provide optimal thermal performance and value at service temperatures up to 650°C (1200°F). With its extremely low thermal conductivity, Pyrogel HPS is up to 75% thinner than competing insulation materials. This makes it ideal for installation in congested areas or near mechanical clashes, increasing both plant safety and efficiency. Reduced insulation thicknesses also supports faster, easier application—saving time and expense.

Pyrogel HPS is tough and durable, delivering consistent performance without cracking, sagging, or settling. It can be re-used after maintenance or inspection, minimizing the time and expense required to stage replacement insulation. Pyrogel HPS is ideal for use in the fabrication of removable insulation pads. It maintains its shape and location, even after vibration or exposure to high temperatures. As with all Pyrogel products, Pyrogel HPS is hydrophobic and breathable, resisting liquid water and avoiding the damaging effects of wet insulation. These unique characteristics combine to minimize heat loss and provide the ultimate protection for process units and high-pressure steam pipes. Pyrogel HPS aerogel insulation is designed to provide long-term performance for the ultimate in safety, process efficiency, and stability, in the power generation, refining, and chemical processing industries.

Aerogel is a lightweight solid derived from gel in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with air. The process of creating aerogel results in a material with extremely low density and the lowest thermal conductivity of any solid. These remarkable properties make aerogel one of the world’s most efficient insulating materials. Our patented process integrates this unique aerogel into a fiber-batting to create flexible, resilient, and durable aerogel blankets with superior insulating performance.

WORKING WITH PYROGEL

Clean, flush, and accurate cutting of Pyrogel can be achieved using conventional cutting tools such as scissors, tin snips, or razor knives. As with all technical insulation materials, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn when handling, cutting and installing Pyrogel. See SDS/AIS for complete health and safety information.

Flexible Industrial Insulation for High-Temperature Applications –40°F (–40°C) to 1200°F (650°C)


Pyrogel® XT-E is the most effective high-temperature insulation material in the industrial market, typically 2-5 times thinner than competing products. It is efficient, durable, and more productive to install. Its water resistance offers a level of protection against corrosion under insulation (CUI). It is also available in a fire-protection grade (Pyrogel® XTF) that is specially formulated to provide exceptional performance against the UL 1709 standard.

Applications Hot piping and equipment, dual temperature (contact us for limits), towers, tanks, low- and high-temperature ducts, fire protection Service Temperature Range -40°F (-40°C) to 1200°F (650°C) Thermal Performance Pyrogel® XT-E is one of the most efficient industrial insulations in the world. Its required thicknesses are 50% - 80% less than other insulation materials.

Moisture Resistance Moisture is a problem in insulation at temperatures up to 200°C. It can form within the insulation and cause corrosion under insulation (CUI). Pyrogel® XT-E is hydrophobic (resistant to liquid water) through the entire matrix of the material (not just on the surface) and provides excellent resistance to moisture. Other insulations tend to absorb moisture over time, potentially corroding the substrate. Pyrogel ® XT-E also meets all specifications for stress crack corrosion of stainless steel. Logistics From procurement through installation, Pyrogel® XT-E simplifies logistics because of its decreased volume requirements. These advantages include freight savings, storage space, simplified inventory, and the fact that it doesn’t break in transit.

Installation Pyrogel® XT-E is quickly and easily installed by wrapping it onto piping and equipment. In contrast, rigid insulation materials are installed piece by piece in sections, which is very labor intensive. Pyrogel® XT-E also is applied in longer lengths and at a faster rate than other insulation materials, which shortens the project schedule.

Blankets wrap over pipe

Cladding and banding provide mechanical and weather protection

Butt joints (staggered if using multi-ply construction)

Installation of flexible Pyrogel® XT-E blankets is fast and intuitive.


Special Applications Overwrap System – Most hot insulation materials used today will eventually become wet, resulting in heat and energy loss, poor process control, and corrosion. This problem can be fixed by wrapping a single layer of 10 mm Pyrogel® XT-E with metal jacket over the existing insulation and jacketing. The Pyrogel® XT-E overwrap drives moisture out of the wet inner layers, resulting in improved thermal performance and reduced operating costs. It also decreases the outer surface temperature, helping to protect your personnel.

Calcium Silicate 75 mm (3 in)

High Temperature Composite System – High temperature applications require higher insulating values. Most high temperature insulation materials (ceramic fiber, mineral wool, etc.) have to be applied in extremely large thicknesses to achieve such values. But for reasons such as space constraints and economics, thick insulation might not work. In these cases, Pyrogel® XT-E can be used in combination with the other materials to substantially reduce the total thickness.

Aerogel: A New Way to Think About Industrial Insulation Aerogels have been in existence for more than 80 years. They consist of lightweight silica solids derived from a gel in which the liquid component has been replaced with gas. The silica solids, which are poor conductors, consist of very small, three-dimensional, intertwined clusters that comprise only 3% of the volume. Conduction through the solid is therefore very low. The remaining 97% of the volume is composed of air in extremely small nanopores. The air has little room to move, inhibiting both convection and gas-phase conduction. These characteristics make aerogel the world’s lowest density solid and most effective thermal insulator. The outstanding thermal properties of aerogels have been studied for decades, but Aspen Aerogels® has developed a technically and economically viable form of aerogel for industrial insulation uses. Our unique process integrates aerogel into a carrier to create flexible, resilient, durable aerogel blankets with superior insulating properties. Environmentally friendly: Strict environmental regulations and increased awareness have led to the requirement for environmentally friendly insulation materials for use in industry. Aerogels pose no chemical threat to the environment. They are silica based, which is essentially sand. Cryogel® Z and Pyrogel® XT-E contain no respirable fibers and do not require blowing agents, so they are free of CFCs and HCFCs. These products can be safely disposed and, since the installed volume is considerably less than competing materials, there is less waste going to landfills. Fire resistant: Cryogel® Z and Pyrogel® XT-E offer excellent resistance to flame spread and smoke emission. In actual hydrocarbon pool and jet fire scenarios, they protect piping and equipment longer, which provides additional time to respond to a catastrophic event. Light weight: Cryogel® Z and Pyrogel® XT-E are lighter than other insulation materials. This enables them to be easily and safely handled on the job site. They can be installed in longer lengths than traditional insulations, which improves installation rates. Their light weight also reduces overall loading of the pipe and equipment support structure. Durable: Cryogel® Z and Pyrogel® XT-E are flexible materials that deform under compression. They have excellent bounce-back properties, even when exposed to compression forces of hundreds of psi, and they can resist high impact loads with no damage and no compromise in performance. This is unlike rigid insulation which, although stiff, is friable and susceptible to cracking. This creates thermal short circuits and paths for moisture intrusion. Rigid insulations also are at risk of breakage during shipping and installation. Hydrophobic: Cryogel® Z and Pyrogel® XT-E are extremely hydrophobic and therefore have outstanding resistance to moisture.

Flexible Industrial Insulation With Integral Vapor Retarder for Sub-Ambient and Cryogenic Applications –460°F (–270°C) to 257°F (125°C)


Cryogel® Z has the lowest k-value of any cryogenic insulation material in the world, reducing thicknesses by 50% - 75%. Cryogel ® Z’s flexible blanket form, with a factory-applied, integral vapor retarder, is both faster to install and more durable once in service, resulting in lower-cost, higher-performing designs.

Applications Sub-ambient piping and equipment, cryogenic storage and transport, industrial gases, LNG import/export pipelines and process areas, chilled water systems Service Temperature Range -460°F (-270°C) to 257°F (125°C) Thermal Performance Cryogel® Z has the lowest thermal conductivity of any material used for cryogenic service. It is therefore much thinner compared to other cold insulation materials. Cryogel® Z’s minimal thickness results in a smaller surface area and reduced heat gain compared to other insulation materials. This heat gain “safety factor” improves process control, reduces boiloff, and saves energy. Also, Cryogel ® Z does not have blowing agents that diffuse out over time, so its thermal performance remains constant.

Moisture and Vapor Resistance Permeability to water and water vapor are critical to any insulation system operating at cryogenic temperatures. Cryogel® Z uses redundant layers of factory-applied mylar vapor retarder to achieve a zero-perm system. Structural Integrity Cryogel® Z is well-suited for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications. Under these severe conditions, it remains totally flexible and resists thermal shock. This is unlike rigid, cellular insulation materials, which experience contraction, thermal shock, damaged structure, freeze-thaw crack propagation, and degraded insulation performance under the same conditions.

Dimensional Stability Cryogel® Z insulation has a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to that of stainless steel, so there is minimal differential movement of the insulation system. Its low contraction rate and flexible wrap application eliminate the need for costly and labor intensive expansion/ contraction joints required by traditional rigid insulation systems.

Cryogel® Z Insulation System Advantages • Thinness creates more space in and around pipe racks and equipment. • Thinness can decrease the overall size of a production facility, resulting in major material reductions and cost savings. • Thinness results in volume and freight savings, decreased accessory materials, minimal site storage, and simplified logistics. • Unique flexible form and wrap application makes installation faster, easier, and less costly. Rigid insulation systems require numerous segments that must be effectively sealed. • Will not break during shipment. • More economical than other insulation systems on an installed basis due to decreased material requirements, logistics improvements, reduced installation time, and shorter construction schedules.
