Svenska Aerogel has received another pilot order, this time for 360 kg of Quartzene[®] from a European manufacturer of insulation materials. Following the recent announcements of pilot orders from two other customers, Svenska Aerogel continues its trend of larger customer projects entering the pilot phase.

 

After positive results from laboratory tests, where Quartzene® was incorporated into their advanced insulation material, the customer is now ready to verify the results in full scale production. This requires a much larger volume compared to the laboratory tests. The pilot order is a crucial step towards the permanent use of Svenska Aerogel’s material in the customer’s application.

 

Svenska Aerogel has previously informed that the typical pilot orders range between 50–150 kg. The pilot orders received from various customers during the spring of 2024 have all been significantly larger than the usual range, demonstrating the customers’ large production facilities.

 

“The series of larger pilot orders paves the way for future growth. The fact that our latest orders come from different industries confirms the broad potential of Quartzene®. This particular customer application is more consumer-oriented, unlike our main customer segments. This clearly demonstrates the versatility of the material. Furthermore, the large size of the pilot order suggests substantial future volumes,” says Tor Einar Norbakk, CEO of Svenska Aerogel.
