SLIMVAC® is a specialist product, so contact the manufacturer for more information.

Description

Ultra-thin, lightweight, microporous vacuum insulated panels (VIPs) that deliver high levels of thermal insulation in a variety of applications, without the bulkiness associated with traditional insulation. The panels are covered in an impermeable polymer outer envelope, which is heat sealed under vacuum to optimise thermal performance. SLIMVAC® is suitable for tight and confined spaces in new build and refurbished developments where standard insulation is too thick.

SLIMVAC® panels should be used in combination with SLIMVAC® tape, SLIMVAC® floor covers and SLIMVAC® top covers for optimal performance on any construction project. Consult manufacturer for further details.

Features and benefits:

  • Ultra-thin and lightweight profile, providing insulation without any loss of space.
  • Suitable for tight and confined spaces.
  • Very low TC value, 4.2 mW/m∙K (centre of panel).
  • High thermal resistance (R-value) of 4.8 m²K/W per 20 mm.
  • Stable, long term thermal performance.
  • Environmentally safe, and contains no respirable fibres.
  • High resistance to compression.
  • Up to 60% moisture resistant.
  • Non-combustible core material.
  • Easy to install without major structural changes.
  • Manufactured in accordance with DIN 4102.

Applications:

  • Roofs (pitched and flat).
  • Terraces.
  • Facades (stone and wood).
  • Interior walls.
  • Ceilings.
  • Thermal bridges.
  • Spandrels.
  • Tile and plank floors.
