New protective layer for Kingspan Optim-R

Kingspan Insulation has made it simpler than ever to achieve optimum levels of thermal performance with the introduction of a new pre-bonded protective layer for its Kingspan OPTIM-R vacuum insulation panels.

The protective layer, which can be bonded to either one or both sides of the Kingspan OPTIM-R panel, allows the product to be fitted directly onto substrate without the need for an additional protective sheet. The pre-bonded OPTIM-R panels can be used in a range of different applications and can help to simplify and streamline installations, saving both time and cost.

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of just 0.007 W/m.K, Kingspan OPTIM-R panels can achieve the desired U-value with a thickness up to five times slimmer than other commonly available insulation products. The panels form part of Kingspan Insulation’s range of LABC approved Kingspan OPTIM-R Systems. 20-40 mm thick Kingspan OPTIM-R panels are also certified under the demanding BDA Agrément® scheme. This independent certification is accepted by NHBC and the LABC and can help to fast-track projects through the procedures and approvals processes, further reducing project costs.
