Structural Insulated Panels

EduFoam polyurethane insulation is the ideal material to create the insulating layer within structural insulated panels (SIP Panels). With excellent thermal insulation values, EduFoam PU foam insulation can provide SIP panel manufacturers with a high performance insulation even with minimal depth. Added to the highly efficient thermal insulation, EduFoam insulation can also provide added structural rigidity and strength with its highly bonded and closed-cell composition.

What are SIP’s?

Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) are a composite -- or ‘sandwich’ -- building material, offering a faster method of construction over traditional methods. SIP’s are constructed of two parallel layers -- usually Oriented Strand Board (OSB) -- which sandwich an insulating layer. The finished panels are; lightweight, much faster to erect than masonry, free from problems of compression shrinkage and avoid the issues of cold bridging associated with other methods of construction.

Where Are SIP’s used?

Structurally insulated panels are used in new-build construction projects throughout the country, they can be used in many areas including:

  • Floors
  • Walls
  • Roofs
  • Domestic Buildings
  • Industrial Buildings
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Educational Buildings


Benefits of Polyurethane Foam Insulation for SIP Panels

When used in the construction of Structural panels, polyurethane foam can offer manufacturers many benefits, including:

  • Complete Cavity Fill - no ‘cold-spots’ left in the construction
  • Complete Surface Bond - the unique nature of the PU foam allows it to bond directly and fully to the internal surfaces
  • Superior Air-Tightness - the closed-cell composition of the foam provides a superior air barrier and drastically reduces unwanted air-leakage or infiltration
  • Added Structural Strength - the highly bonded, closed-cell polyurethane foam will add rigidity and strength to the overall panel

Edu-Chem  can provide everything needed to SIP panel manufacturers to make the project a success, including; advice, equipment, materials, training, service and ongoing support.
