The Demand for Fire Rated or Certified Insulation Materials and Panels Has Led to the Adoption of a Broad Number of Classifications for Insulation Material

Insulated panel production has seen great growth in the last 30-plus years. Output, sales, applications and geographic spread have been features of the market place.

Throughout this Report, the authors have attempted to provide:

  • Best estimates using available information, contacts, published results and primary research;
  • Conservative figures as to output and sales;
  • Conservative adhesive volumes.

Often information provided by manufacturers reflects their best interest and is not necessarily validated by market experience. A conservative approach is therefore deemed wise.

This Report focuses on insulated panels with core materials of:

  • Expanded Polystyrene
  • Polyurethane
  • Mineral Wool

The lamination of metal faced panels commenced in the Australian market in the 1960s with the introduction of basic continuous panel laminating or gluing machinery for the manufacture of panels using Expanded Polystyrene core material for the cold storage industry. The development of Polyurethane continuous panel manufacturing machinery expanded the overall market capacity considerably and lowered the price of insulated boards with flexible facings and metal faced and panels. The introduction of mineral wool core material to create a fire rated panel system with certification developed a new market in building construction and application.

The benefits of this continuous production process are:

  • Panels of any length
  • Panels of any set thickness
  • Panels with a high tensile strength
  • Panels with a high load carrying capacity

The regions covered by this Report include:

  • Western Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • Middle East and Africa
  • PRC / Asia
  • South East Asia
  • North America
  • South America
