Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs)A VIP is an insulation product that is five to ten times thinner than conventional insulation materials used in building (e.g. polystyrene, polyurethane, glass or mineral wool) with the same heat transfer coefficient (U-value).
VIPs have been successfully implemented in buildings for several years. They are a space-saving alternative to conventional insulation materials. Two vacuum insulation products received authorization from the building authorities for the first time in July 2007.
