Insulation Materials & Systems 2.0
Hartwig Kunzel, Ph.D., Fraunhofer IBP, Andreas Holm, Ph.D., FIW Munich, & André Desjarlais, ORNL
What are the trends in building insulation? How do new systems perform & how durable are they? Where are the limits? Appreciate the dependence of thermal performance on temperature, humidity & air flow. What are the pitfalls of testing & evaluating the thermal properties of insulation systems? We will discuss appropriate protection & maintenance measures to ensure long service life of insulated building assemblies. Learn about the recycling options for insulation materials & systems.
