U-VacuaTM vacuum insulation panel (VIP) technology has achieved one of the highest levels of heat insulation performance available for practical use. The super low thermal conductivity of 0.002 W/mK of U-Vacua VIPs means an R-Value per inch that is 5 to 20 times higher than traditional insulations. The super insulating capability of U-VacuaTM VIPs has proven to be a powerful tool for creating first class energy efficient designs.
VIPs have been produced for decades, starting out as thermal insulation for refrigeration appliances. Over time, U-VacuaTM technology has evolved to benefit a broad range of uses, including cold chain, medical and transport containers, and more recently in building and construction. VIPs can be used to advance the energy efficiency of any solution that needs to prevent heat transfer.
