This exclusive license allows FLEXcon and its affiliate, Blueshift International Materials Inc., to manufacture and market Glenn’s patent pending polyimide aerogels for many aerospace applications such as insulation for cryotanks and spacesuits, as well as more down-to-Earth uses in construction, refrigeration and pipe insulation.
“We are delighted to secure a licensing agreement for Glenn’s technology,” said Center Director Jim Free. “We have hundreds of technologies available for licensing at Glenn, and it is extremely gratifying when the private sector adapts NASA innovations so they can make an impact in the marketplace. By licensing the polyimide aerogel technology to FLEXcon, Glenn will gain a commercialization partner.”
