Building Insulation & Insulated Metal Panels

Building in Energy Efficiency

The changing needs of the building industry are driving demand for construction materials that contribute to the energy efficiency of buildings, help reduce their carbon footprints, and meet more stringent fire performance regulations. Metal panels insulated with Dow VORATHERM™ polyisocyanurate and VORACOR™ polyurethane systems for insulated panels and boards bring excellent performance and light weight properties that can meet the most demanding industry requirements, improve longevity and increase energy efficiency.

Efficient, Fast and Reliable Conversion to PIR

The growing influence of sustainable building initiatives is driving the demand for construction materials that contribute to the energy efficiency of buildings, helping reduce their carbon footprint. At the same time, both national regulations and insurance companies have become more stringent regarding fire performance of insulation materials in order to capture opportunities in this changing competitive climate, sandwich panel producers need to improve the fire performance of their products without affecting their thermal insulation performance.

Polyisocyanurate (PIR) rigid foam offers the best-in-class insulation performance of polyurethane (PUR), but with greatly enhance fire performance properties. Dow’s family of PIR products – VORATHERM™ polyisocyanurate - offers a wide index of fire-performance levels that be further customized to your specifications, allowing you to keep pace with changing market requirements.
