Our Frequently Asked Questions
Q) Why do structural insulated sandwich panels degrade?
The deterioration in structural insulation panels is primarily caused by the ingress of moisture into the insulating core material, which has a number of consequences on the thermal insulating & structural performance of the panels.
Q) What are the signs of structural insulated panel deterioration?
Structural insulated panels deteriorate through the:
Loss of thermal insulation properties
Liquid water has a thermal conductivity (~ 0.55 W m^-1 k^-1) that is ~ 25 times larger than both air & polyurethane - the most typical insulated panel core (~ 0.023 W m^-1 k^-1). Any liquid water saturation of the insulating core material therefore decrease the thermal insulation properties of the material.
Increase in panel weight (due to water-logging of in insulated panel core)
Water-Logging &/or Ice-Logging is of particular concern for insulated ceiling panels: their increased weight & subsequent loss in structural integrity & strength (through De-lamination) or added load on panel frame structure (such as a steel portal frame) may lead to ceiling collapse with potentially disastrous consequences.
De-lamination of the panel skin
This can be caused by mechanical damage e.g. from collisions with fork-lift trucks, or indirectly by the ingress of water: liquid water that collects at the insulation core-skin interface & subsequently freezes will quickly deteriorate the structural & insulating properties of the panel.
De-lamination of the vapour seal
Destruction of the insulated panel core
Loss of structural integrity
The above are typically the consequence (either directly or indirectly) of the penetration of water into the insulating core of the structural insulated panels.
Q) How can the structural integrity & thermal performance of insulated panels be maintained?
Ensure adequate ventilation
Ensure adequate roof insulation
Ensure all pipework is adequately insulated
Ensure good vapour sealing
Ensure any damage to the structural insulated panel is repaired quickly
Avoid leaking pipes or roofs
Q) How can I identify the insulated core material of a structural insulation panel?
For more information see our types of insulated panel resource to learn how to identify insulated panel core material.
