Summary:

We have developed a compact vacuum insulation panel (VIP) that is 0.5 inch thick, costs less than 8 inches of polyurethane foam, but provides greater thermal insulation. Our VIP is encased in a puncture resistant stainless steel foil and supports atmospheric pressure by a tensile arrangement of Kevlar filaments.
