THERMAL INSULATION OF SANDWICH PANELS

λ (W/mK) Thermal Conductivity Coefficient

   The thermal conductivity value (λ) is the expression of how much a material transmits heat depending on its physical and chemical structure. It is a fixed value specific to each material. The thermal conductivity value is expressed in Watts (W) of the amount of energy required to maintain a temperature difference of 1 Kelvin on the inner and outer surfaces of a wall consisting of 1 m thick material with a surface area of 1 m2. The closer the thermal conductivity coefficient of an insulation material is to 0, the better thermal insulation it provides. In this respect, PUR/- PIR filled panels perform better than others. The thermal conductivity values and performances of different building materials are shown in the table below.

U (W/m2K) Thermal Transmission Value

    It is the amount of energy (W) required to maintain a temperature difference of 1 Kelvin between two parallel surfaces of a wall with a surface area of 1 m2 with a certain thickness. The closer the U value is to 0, the better the thermal insulation of the material. Thermal permeability values are taken into account when determining the sandwich panel filling material thickness.

R (m2K/W) Thermal Resistance

    Thermal Resistance (R) is the resistance of a building material to heat transfer. The larger the R value, the less heat transfer, the higher the insulation performance. Thickness comparisons of different building materials with the same thermal resistance are shown below.
