FLEXcon recently announced it participated in a signing ceremony at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, to mark FLEXcon’s manufacturing and marketing of Glenn’s patent-pending polyimide aerogels. The aerogels are used for aerospace applications such as insulation for cryotanks and spacesuits, as well as more down-to-Earth uses in construction, refrigeration, and pipe insulation.

The aerogel technology is also used as a layer of the high-pressure extravehicular activity gloves for a NASA Small Business Innovation Research contract. The goal is to develop advanced spacesuit gloves suitable for use in the Martian environment and other long duration missions.
