Aerogel is the world’s most advanced insulating material. Our company, PolarWrap, uses aerogel in our line of Toasty Feet insoles.

I wonder what the long-term effects of this particular material will be.. Asbestos, too was advanced and all fancy and good. Turned out it did a bit more than what it said on the tin, ey?

Seriously do, is this at all bio-degredable? Or recyclable?
