  • Publication number: 20220195137
    Abstract: A molding based on a monolithic organic aerogel has a density in the range from 60 to 300 kg/m3 and a thermal conductivity in the range from 12 to 17.8 mW/m*K. The molding based on a monolithic organic aerogel has more than 30 vol.-% of pores with a diameter of less than 150 nm, and more than 20 vol.-% of pores with a diameter of less than 27 nm, based on the total pore volume. A process can be used to prepare the molding by compression.

  • Publication number: 20220098384
    Abstract: A process for preparing a porous material involves at least the steps of providing a mixture (I) containing a composition (A), which contains components suitable to from an organic gel, and a solvent (B); reacting the components in the composition (A) in the presence of the solvent (B) to form a gel; and drying of the gel. The composition (A) contains a catalyst system (CS), which contains at least a catalyst component (C1) selected from ammonium salts and phosphonium salts, and an acid with a phosphor containing acid group as a catalyst component (C2). Porous materials can be obtained in this way and the porous materials can be used as thermal insulation material and in vacuum insulation panels and vacuum insulation systems, in particular in interior or exterior thermal insulation systems as well as for insulation of refrigerators and freezers and in water tank or ice maker insulation systems.

  • Publication number: 20210114262
    Abstract: A mold for manufacturing a body made of a porous material derived from precursors of the porous material in a sol-gel process carried out within the mold can have a lower part defining an interior volume for receiving the precursors of the porous material, wherein the interior volume defines the shape of the body to be manufactured, and at least a first opening through which the body is removable from the lower part. Surfaces of the lower part facing the interior volume are at least partially provided with a coating made of a material that is electrically dissipative and non-sticky to a gel formed from the precursors of the porous material and/or the body.
