Optimum Performance Next Generation Insulation

Optimum Performance Next Generation Insulation
OPTIM-R vacuum insulated panels (often called a VIP) offer solutions for those times when you know you're going to run out of space or for when space is tight.

Product Information

Kingspan OPTIM-R is a next generation insulation comprising rigid vacuum insulation panels (VIP) with a microporous core, which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas–tight envelope to give outstanding R–values and an ultra–thin insulation solution.

The high level of thermal efficiency, up to 5x better than other commonly available building insulation materials, with minimal thickness achieved by Kingspan OPTIM-R can provide solutions for applications where a lack of construction space or depth is an issue.

● Optimum performance rigid vacuum insulation panel (VIP)
● Provides high levels of thermal efficiency with minimal thickness

Thermal Resistance
ASTM C1667 (Standard Test Method for Using Heat Flow Meter Apparatus to Measure the Center-of-Panel Thermal Transmission Properties of Vacuum Insulation Panels) is the only test method designated by ASTM to be used specifically for testing center panel thermal resistance of Vacuum Insulated Panels. ASTM C1667 further states that Vacuum Insulated Panels fall outside the scope of test method ASTM C518. All of the below stated thermal resistance values are based on Certified ASTM C1667 testing.

OPTIM-R Product Applications

OPTIM-R Roofing System

Opitm-R-Preset-Steel-Deck_US
Next Generation Insulation Solution for Flat Roofs
The Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System is an optimum performance next generation insulation solution from Kingspan Insulation. It comprises of rigid vacuum insulation panels with a microporous core which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope, giving outstanding thermal conductivity, with the thinnest possible solution to insulation problems. The vacuum insulation panels are accompanied with rigid thermoset polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as roof lights or ventilator kerbs.

In retrofit applications, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System provides solutions for areas that previously would have remained un-insulated because of insufficient space available. In new constructions, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System can significantly enhance U-values in areas that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance

OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System

Opitm-R-TR27-Concrete-Balcony_US
Next Generation Insulation Solution for Balconies and Terraces
The Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System is an optimum performance next generation insulation solution from Kingspan Insulation. It comprises of rigid vacuum insulation panels with a microporous core which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope, giving outstanding thermal conductivity, with the thinnest possible solution to insulation problems. The vacuum insulation panels are accompanied by high performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as drainage gutters.

In retrofit applications, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System can be used to avoid height differences between the building interior and the balcony or terrace. In new constructions the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System can significantly enhance U-values in an area that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance.
