VIPA International – Vacuum Insulation Panel Association

The Vacuum Insulation Panel Association (VIPA International) is a global trade association representing the interests of manufacturers of Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs), as well as the supply chain. The association acts as the global voice of the VIP industry, promotes quality and raises awareness about the potential of VIPs to save space and energy costs, to increase energy efficiency and to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in a wide range of applications and industries.
Vacuum Insulation Panels are 5 to 10 times better than other insulation materials as they have:
  • Extremely low thermal conductivity (between 0.002 and 0.008 W/(m·K) after production);
  • Long-term thermal performance; and
  • Low insulation thickness.
In addition, VIPs are very durable and have a long lifetime, making them the perfect insulation solution for a number of applications. This high performing insulation technology can be used to insulate buildings (floors, roofs, facades and walls), home appliances (refrigerators, freezers and water boilers), temperature-controlled packaging solutions for medical and pharmaceutical industries or vending machines and cold store units. VIPs are also used in certain automotive applications, such as in trains, ships and airplanes.
