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. According to the manufacturer, the high level of thermal efficiency — up to R-28 on 1 inch and R-57 on 2 inch using calculated edge thermal resistance properties — combined with minimal thickness, provides an ideal solution for applications where a lack of construction space or depth is an issue, such as commercial roofing for single-ply low slope and IRMA systems.
OPTIM-R panels are accompanied with polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation infill panels for single-ply systems or XPS insulation infill panels for IRMA systems, which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as sky lights or other roofing penetrations. In retrofit applications, OPTIM-R can provide solutions for areas that previously would have remained un–insulated because of insufficient space available. In new construction, the product can significantly enhance U–values/R–values in areas that would otherwise be accepted as diminishing the overall thermal performance.
