Work developed by University of Coimbra under the project AeroXTreme CENTRO-01-0145-FEDER-029533), co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funds, through COMPETE 2020 – Operational Programme for Competitiveness and Internationalization or through Centro2020 Regional Operational Programme, and by Portuguese National Funds, through FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia, I.P.

"High-performance silica aerogel nanocomposites for insulation under extreme temperature Space environments"

     AeroXTreme will endow lightweight, fiber-reinforced silica-based aerogel nanocomposites for high-performance thermal insulation at extreme temperature/ vibration conditions imposed to Space devices, especially in launch/re-entry operations and at cryogenic propulsion stages.


     Eco-friendly minerals existing in the Centre of Portugal will be incorporated.
