Vacuum Insulation: Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP)

Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP) design engineers Panasonic
Panasonic Vacuum Insulation panel vip

Panasonic U-Vacua is a high performance vacuum insulation panel (VIP) with very low thermal conductivity that performs about 20 times better than standard urethane foam.
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.

Additional Information

Panasonic vacuum insulation panel (VIP) has achieved one of the highest levels of heat insulation performance. The U-Vacua product performs about 20 times greater than hard urethane foam, and 38 times greater than glass wool, which enables high insulation performance in a thin form. Our vacuum insulation can advance the energy efficiency of such applications as home appliances (water heaters, refrigerators, and freezers), commercial refrigeration, home building, and refrigerated shipping and transport.
