They have several interesting applications in development and we look forward to be able to release more information when new products are ready for launching by end customers. The process is extensive and also confidential as we have to respect the end customer competitive position.
Svenska Aerogel is a company working at the technology edge and is currently in a very exciting phase in the transition from research to production and commercialization. I look forward to support the company in its next development stage
We are very pleased to welcome Gert to Svenska Aerogel. His experience from the manufacturing industry, global operations, leading and motivating employees will be very important for our further success and growth.
This is a brilliant example of how the market drives innovative solutions. The demand for this type of product is great and we are of course happy about this success for our team. We have managed to unite innovation and cooperation in our network. We see this as an acknowledgment of the product, and now we can contribute with solutions to the market needs in the Netherlands and the rest of the world
his result is encouraging, but what happens after this is crucial. We have seen good solutions with great potential and the 40 entries show how important this challenge is.
We have a good cooperation with Novcoat and we are pleased to see that manufacturers in this network are making progress. These products are important energy-saving solutions that we will surely see more of in the future.
The competition has brought interesting meetings with innovators and industry professionals. It is very clear that synergy effects can be achieved by combining Quartzene with their products. It is really exciting to be part of the final round
- We are so flexible that we can cover the market's needs by tailoring the production modules and placing them on customer plants in the future.
We are convinced that Quartzene will contribute in these efforts and that this segment will be rewarding. Our cooperation with Barozzi is therefore deepened and we look forward to take part of this growing market. We will use our network of distributors and industrial contacts to identify relevant projects and connect Barozzi directly to these opportunities.
We are happy to see these interesting applications for Quartzene in our business area Paint and Coatings. There is a great potential for Quartzene in improved printing quality and we can see a significant sales potential in many of these applications
For example, when it comes to filtering formaldehyde, we are close to finalizing a product for the market based on this feature. Quartzene can also be used to filter out ethylene and thereby extend the storage time for fruit and vegetables, which has been especially noticed by refrigerator manufacturers.
We see a significant potential for our powerful water-repellent Quartzene
First of all, I would like to thank Anders Lundström for his important role in the construction of Svenska Aerogel and regret that he leaves. At the same time, we welcome Tor Einar Norbakk, who has a very good background for leading Svenska Aerogel in our continued development. We are building an extensive production facility to take advantage of the great global interest for Quartzene - our very strong version of aerogel.
t has been intense and fun years. I am very proud of what the team at Svenska Aerogel and I have achieved together. As the company leaves the start-up phase and becomes a manufacturing industry, it is natural to have another leadership
For those who are testing our material, it is obvious that our version of aerogel leads the market
We see a large commercial potential for thermo-insulating plaster with Quartzene. Barozzi has developed a solution, that will be launched in southern Europe and we will follow it with great interest
Quartzene has beneficial properties for the paint industry in many ways. For the marine industry we know that the market with excitement is awaiting an environmentally safe antifouling paint that at the same time does not compromise on the results
Our new product, Neptune Formula New Generation, which is the subject of patent application, has shown good results on both the east and west coasts and we are looking forward to a successful launch in 2018
We are enthusiastic about how quickly and smoothly it was for nC Surface Technology to include Quartzene in their special paints. In addition, the company decided to add Quartzene in all of their paint products. That shows how efficient and competitive our material is
We expect a significant demand for our air filtration solutions, which annually accounts for just over SEK 60 billion. This kind of partnership has a direct link to expand our product portfolio with additional filter products and filter technologies. Part of the development here is about developing environmentally adapted solutions.
Cooperations with leading researchers in the field of chemistry and nanotechnology gives us significant opportunities to continue to strengthen our own knowledge. This knowledge can directly connect to the development of commercial products with Quartzene.
Insulating paint and coatings in carpets is one of many examples of the benefits of using Quartzene. Comfort increases significantly if the floors are warm and soundproof
The project has been developed in several stages with good results. Another major test is now running and we estimate that the project will be completed in 2018 and that the orders will start at the same time
Our patented material Quartzene has not only very good features, it is also very cost effective, which opens up for a variety of new applications, such as the automotive industry
The agreement with Chemtech gives us the opportunity to quickly get a solid foothold on the Indian market, which is one of the world's largest markets for paint and coatings.
Our partners in the global paint&coatings industry have expressed a significant interest in this type of products. I expect that we will have developed a solution ready for sale in 2018.
This agreement is important for Svenska Aerogel. With Chempons we will be able to quickly reach the Chinese market for special paint and coatings, which is one of the world's largest and fastest growing markets.
. With experienced and competent dealers such as JTC Jinwoo Trading Co., we have excellent opportunities to create good scalable sales quickly
With Quartzene®, we can not only achieve good temperature conditions, it also helps us to be cost-effective in our energy saving measures. It is very important and valuable for the South African struggle against global warming.
The fact that Dry Tech is the first to place a larger order of Quartzene® gives them a clear competitive edge with Quartzen-based products in South Africa. There is a great interest in our material, mainly in Europe but also in Asia and North America. We have today about 150 companies working on developing heat-insulating coatings based on Quartzene®.
We hope to extend the lifespan of fruit and vegetables throughout the logistics chain, from packaging where harvesting takes place through stores and final storage in our homes
The work is progressing according to plan and we now have a filter material that effectively destroys ethylene in refrigerated air
This is of course a high interest area for us—and not only for the company, it is of major concern for all humanity
This agreement will give us additional strong sales focus towards our markets in Central Europa.
This is a great addition to our business and I'm really looking forward to offering Quartzene® to our customers
–It is however interesting to note that the sales from test materials increased by a factor of 12, from SEK 22 000 in 2015 to SEK 281 000 in 2016. That is for me a proof that we are coming closer to the market. We had about 30 customers testing Quartzene® in 2016.
Thanks to the investments in our plant in Gävle we can offer larger volumes, which means that we have taken the first steps towards the commercialization of our product. We can see a large potential market which, together with our unique manufacturing process, our technical expertise and the IPO we completed in 2016, makes me look forward to 2017 with confidence
This increase is very dependent on our ongoing campaign
“I believe We can make remarkable innovations together. Hopefully our joint work in this project will prove to be the first steps in a technical innovation for the automotive industry.”
“The cooperation with Kolon Glotech is really exciting. There is of course a great potential in developing products with Quartzene® for the automotive industry. Having Katie here with us is a true pleasure! Not only is she very ambitious and competent, she spreads joy in our team”
The strong commercial network combined with the technical knowledge that Dry Tech Aerogels represents provides us with an excellent base in South Africa and a great opportunity for Svenska Aerogel to reach the African market. Dry Tech Aerogels has developed a portfolio of paint and coating products and the company has a good knowledge of the market and their customer needs. I am confident that this partnership will be of great benefit to all parties and we look forward to offer Quartzene® to the African market
