BASF SE ("BASF") and Aspen Aerogels, Inc. ("Aspen") (NYSE: ASPN) announced today the expansion of their strategic partnership with the signing of an exclusive supply agreement and a joint development agreement. The agreements are designed to increase market penetration, enhance product profitability and facilitate the development of next generation materials. As part of the supply agreement, Aspen will commit to the exclusive supply of its Spaceloft® A2 product for incorporation within BASF's aerogel enhanced Slentex® wall system for the building materials market. In turn, BASF will make a low double-digit million investment in the construction of Aspen's new manufacturing plant and BASF will become a base load customer forAspen's capacity expansion. In addition, BASF will provide technical support to Aspen targeting manufacturing productivity, product cost and profit margins. Initially, the supply agreement will support BASF's efforts to drive growth in the global building materials market of its Slentex® wall system incorporating Aspen's patented technology. BASF may also directly sell or incorporate Spaceloft® A2 into other systems for applications in certain building, transportation, consumer and industrial markets worldwide. The agreement will run through 2027. "We chose to partner with Aspen because of their superior aerogel technology platform, which we can enhance as partners in various ways," said Raimar Jahn, President of BASF's Performance Materials division. "The new agreements will accelerate adoption of aerogel technology as an eco-efficient insulation material globally." The Joint Development Agreement establishes a framework to develop new aerogel products and technologies. The agreement will give BASF targeted access to Aspen's world leading technology platform while Aspen will gain access to BASF's technical expertise, sales channels and financial resources. The partnership will both further Aspen's market diversification and growth strategy and support BASF's objective to provide innovative solutions to meet current and future customer needs. The origin of the partnership dates to 2010 when BASF Venture Capital made an equity investment in Aspen and the two companies began to explore technology development and commercialization opportunities within the building materials market. This work led to the development of Aspen's Spaceloft® A2 insulation product.
