  1. 1. Vacuum insulation in buildings : Means to prolong service life

    Author : Thomas I. Thorsell; Gudni Jóhannesson; Christer Sjöström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vacuum insulation; thermal bridge; serpentine edge; coated film; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Vacuum insulation panels, VIPs, constitute a new insulation material, 6 to 8 times better than traditional insulation materials, which utilizes the positive influence vacuum has on the thermal properties of certain materials. A VIP is a composite with a flat core enclosed by an envelope preventing the core to fill with gas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Advances in Thermal Insulation : Vacuum Insulation Panels and Thermal Efficiency to Reduce Energy Usage in Buildings
