Vacuum insulation panels are distinguished by their outstandingly low thermal conductivity, which is approximately 0.004 W/ (m • K) to 0.01 W/ (m • K), only 33% to 10% of that of the traditional heat preservation materials. The heat preservation mechanism of vacuum insulation panels is elaborated in the study. The thermal conductivity of the vacuum insulation panel made in our lab were below 0.01 W/ (m • K). By analysis and calculation, with this kind of VIPs applied to refrigerated containers, its exciting properties can save energy consumption by more than 20% compared with traditional heat preservation materials.
