Annex 65, Long-Term Performance of Super-Insulating-Materials in Building Components and Systems. Report of Subtask I: State of the Art and Case Studies
Report, 2020

The objective of this subtask I is to present the main characteristic of SIM (Super Insulating Materials) compared to traditional materials.
Two main SIM are considered:
- VIP (Vacuum Insulation Panel)
- APM (Advanced Porous Materials).
Moreover, the present report provides an up-to-date catalogue of commercially available materials & components with technical description and data of each product and information about the application domains and the implementation rules.
An overview on all the application areas such as external & internal wall insulation, roofs, floors, ceilings …are investigated through a few case studies.
Finally, preliminary results about Life Cycle Assessment of SIM are presented at the end of the report.
