- Markets & Applications
PyroThinTM, our new generation of ultra-thin flexible aerogel thermal barriers has been engineered to satisfy the needs of the electric vehicle and BESS industries. Starting at only 2mm thickness, this new platform of silica aerogel materials can be tailored to perform in critical applications including:
Aspen Aerogel's 20 year heritage is rooted in solving severely space constrained heat shielding, insulation, and fire barrier challenges for technology leaders such as NASA and BASF, as well as leading aerospace, and energy infrastructure companies.
Placed between cells, our PyroThin™ thermal barriers provide precious minutes of protection from thermal runaway propagation. When used to line battery modules, or under the pack cover, PyroThin can help protect occupants from the hazards caused by thermal runaway, and help you meet your regulatory and mandated egress requirements.
PyroThin ATB1000 delivers the utmost in low thermal conductivity and was developed to address the most severely space-constrained applications. PyroThin ATB1000 is ideal for applications where ultra-low thermal conductivity at high temperatures, thin form factors, ultra-low weight, and greater compressibility is demanded. PyroThin ATB1000 is optimized to deliver class-leading thermal protection. It is available in 2 and 3mm thicknesses.
PyroThin ATB2000 shares many of the exceptional characteristics of PyroThin ATB1000 but has been optimized to deliver increased mechanical performance typically required by pouch cell assemblies. It is available in 2 and 3mm thicknesses.
We understand that not all thermal runaway challenges are the same. PyroThin's versatile aerogel platform can be engineered to accommodate specific thermal, compression response, and thickness needs.

PyroThin thermal barriers placed between pouch or prismatic cells in lithium ion battery systems can provide precious minutes of protection from an adjacent cell that is undergoing thermal runaway.
When used inside of the battery pack, PyroThin aerogel sheets can act as a thermal and fire barrier. They can help you meet regulatory and manufacturer mandated safety goals.
Thin thermal insulation for passenger comfort applications in electric vehicles and high temperature solutions for internal combustion engine exhaust and thermal management applications.
Ultra-thin, flexible PyroThin aerogel sheets are ideal solutions for use between LiB cells and between modules for mitigating thermal runaway propagation. The low thermal conductivity of PyroThin thermal barriers, formulated with proprietary additives, can provide vehicle OEMs, cell manufacturers, module assemblers, and EV solution providers a superior passive solution to thermal runaway.
Combined thermal insulation and fire protection of PyroThin aerogel sheets to isolate passenger interior space from high temperatures and other hazards during thermal runaway.
Electric vehicle manufacturers are constantly striving to increase driving range. Our ultra efficient PyroThin™, Pyrogel®, Cryogel® and Spaceloft® aerogel sheets can help reduce the energy demands of air conditioning and heating systems, which supports your driving range goals.
