Turning up the heat: Newly developed material can block solar heat from escaping

https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-03-25-new-material-blocks-solar-heat-from-escaping.html

This mechanism allows the aerogel to generate temperatures higher than 200 C (398 F). ... Visit FutureScienceNews.com for more stories and studies on aerogel applications. "...

Future aerogels inspired by the wings of a dragonfly

https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-26-future-aerogels-inspired-by-the-wings-of-a-dragonfly.html

Aerogel is a synthetic material derived from a gel, a mixture where liquid particles are dispersed throughout a solid medium. Aerogel differs from other gels – gelatin, for example – in that its liquid components have been replaced with gas. "...

Researchers have recycled clothing waste into an "aerogel" supermaterial that can help stop wound bleeding

https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-03-11-researchers-have-recycled-clothing-waste-aerogel-supermaterial.html

Because they’re biocompatible, each aerogel pellet can be integrated into existing hemorrhage control devices with little issue. ... - More news on cotton aerogel Researchers have recycled clothing waste into an “aerogel” supermaterial that can help stop wound bleeding - Disqus Take Action: Support Natural News by linking to this article from your website Permalink to this article: https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-03-11-researchers-have-recycled-clothing-waste-aerogel-supermaterial....

New material made from recycled plastic bottles could help reduce water pollution

https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-21-new-material-made-from-recycled-plastic-bottles-could-help-reduce-water-pollution.html

A single A4-sized sheet of aerogel can be made from a recycled bottle. The surface of the material will be treated to further improve its absorption and insulating capacities. Adding a fire retarding coat made the aerogel sheet capable of surviving temperatures of up to 1,148 F (620 C.) "...

Scientists develop "nanowood" that works like styrofoam for construction, but it's lighter and stronger

https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-04-08-scientists-develop-nanowood-that-works-like-styrofoam-construction.html

In fact, they said that the nanowood was able to block at least 10 degrees more heat than typical styrofoam or silica aerogel. ... When they tried to crush the nanowood, the engineers found that it was facing one direction and could be 30 times stronger than commercially used thermal insulation materials like styrofoam, aerogel, or other cellulose-based foams. "...

New biodegradable foam could replace oil-based plastics

https://www.naturalnews.com/030548_plastics_biodegradable.html

By mixing casein, a milk derivative, with ordinary clay and a reactive molecule, researchers were able to create the new "aerogel" material. Based on initial findings, aerogel could replace commonly-used pillow and cushion stuffing, building insulation, foam packaging materials, and other similar materials. "...

NASA Finds Amino-Acid on Comet

https://www.naturalnews.com/026898_nasa_life_discovery.html

The Stardust collected particles from the comet's coma using a special spongy material called aerogel. ... "Based on the foil and aerogel results it is highly probable that the entire comet-exposed side of the Stardust sample collection grid is coated with glycine that formed in space," commented Dr. "...

Scientists develop new insulation material inspired by polar bears

https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-04-new-insulation-material-inspired-by-polar-bears.html

These tubes were wound into a spaghetti-like aerogel block. Shu-Hong Yu, a professor of chemistry at USTC and the study’s co-senior author, said that by making the material out of carbon tubes, they were able to design something that traps heat without degrading noticeably over its lifetime. "...
