Aerogel Core has been established by University of Bath scientists, supported by Innovate UK funding.
The Company specializes in ultra-light, graphene-based ‘aerogels’ that can be used for soundproofing and heat-shielding for the aerospace and automotive industries.
The innovative and environmentally friendly aerogels are synthetic, porous materials manufactured by replacing the liquid component normally found in gels with gas.
The team has developed a way to use graphene to produce aerogels that retain their shape and strength, without the gel structure collapsing.
