Vacuum Insulation: Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIP)

Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIP) design engineers Panasonic
Vauum Insulation Panels for thermal insulation

High Performance With Low Thermal Conductivity And As Much As 20 Times More Efficient Than Standard Foam Insulation.

R-Value = 60 per inch

Panasonic’s Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP) has achieved one of the highest levels of insulation performance with very low thermal conductivity. The U-Vacua product performs as much as  12 to 20 times greater than urethane foam, and about 25 times greater than glass wool, which enables high insulation performance in a thin design. The core structure, made using a proprietary molding technology, is wrapped in laminate film to create a low vacuum inside and control thermal conduction. U-Vacua's improved performance saves space while increasing the energy efficiency of refrigeration applications, home appliances, buildings, and any products that require low energy loss from heat transfer. Our vacuum insulation can advance the energy efficiency of many residential and commercial products such as home appliances, commercial refrigeration, home building, and refrigerated shipping and transport.
