Vacuum Insulation Panel

High Performance With Low Thermal Conductivity - As Much As 13 Times More Efficient Than Standard Polyurethane Foam Insulation

Panasonic's Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP) technology has achieved one of the highest levels of insulation performance with very low thermal conductivity. U-Vacua® panels perform as much as 13 times better than polyurethane foam insulation, enabling high insulation performance in a thin design. The unique glass fiber core is encased in laminate film to create a vacuum inside and control thermal conduction for many years. U-Vacua's improved performance saves space while increasing the energy efficiency of any solution that requires low energy loss from heat transfer.

Did you know Panasonic's U-Vacua® Vacuum Insulation Panels won an Environmental Leader Council 2016 Product of the Year award?

For OEM customers, various panel configurations are available that optimize the VIP for a particular application, life, and size requirements. Please contact us at
