Vakuum insulation panel : Technical possibilities (English)
Abstract [en]

In the early 70’s the prices for energy went up in many countries. Focus then became directed to enhance insulation in buildings. With the conventional insulation materials, a wall thickness of half a meter might get reached in order to meet the requirements for a passive house. Thick walls either entail a smaller living area or larger building area which both mean a higher cost for the owner.

VIP is today a common insulation material within some form of usage, like for instance refrigerators. In buildings, however, it’s still new. VIP’s have a 5-10 times better insulation ability than today’s conventional insulation materials. At the downside, VIP has a short service life and is expensive.

Today, Japan is dominating the usage of VIP in refrigerators and freezers. In Switzerland, Germany and Sweden, there are ongoing projects where VIP is applied in constructions and measurements are taken and analysed to be able to determine how VIP’s characteristics can be put to use in the best of ways.
