Vacuum insulation panels: Advantages
The thermal conductivity in vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) is about ten
times smaller than in conventional, non-evacuated insulation materials such
as mineral or glass fibres, or polystyrene or polyurethane foams. VIPs with
the same insulation thickness as conventional insulation materials therefore
insulate about ten times better.
Vacuum insulation panels are more expensive than conventional, non-evacuated insulation materials. Thermal insulation systems using VIPs are therefore particularly attractive when saving space is essential and no other technical solutions are available.
