Nonflammable ecologically sound highly transparent and light material with the unique optical, heat-and sound- insulating properties.
The BIC’s proprietary technology allows the most transparent large-size silica aerogel units to be synthesized.
|Unit size, mm||200х200х50|
|Diameter of spherical granules, mm||3–5|
|Density, g/cm 3||0,03 to 0,30|
|Porosity, %||80 to 99|
|Pore volume, m3/g||4 to 14|
|УSpecific surface area, m sup>2/g||400 to 900|
|Refractive index||1.006 to 1.060|
|Scattering length at λ = 400 nm||40 to 60 mm|
|Absorption length at λ= 400 nm||more than 400 сm|
|The aerogel is fabricated in the form of blocks and spherical granules.|
The blocks are used for assembling a number of aerogel detectors.
