Radmat Quantum PLUS+ VIP
Radmat Quantum PLUS+ Inverted Roof Insulation System is a rigid Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP). The VIP panel consists of a compressed fumed silica sand microporous core which is evacuated of air and moisture before being encased and sealed in a special thin, gas-tight, hybrid aluminium foil envelope, encapsulated in a solvent free polyurethane waterproof coating. The coating is a factory applied solvent free two component elastomeric polyurethane waterproofing membrane. The resulting panel gives outstanding thermal conductivity, with the thinnest possible insulation solution.
With a design (aged) thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m.K, the Quantum PLUS+ VIP panel provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials. This high level of thermal efficiency combined with minimal thickness enable the Quantum PLUS+ VIP Inverted Roof Insulation system compliant with the requirements of Regulations Part L, Part M and NHBC Chapter 7.1.
QI Quantum PLUS+ is suitable for use in roofs, roof terraces, enclosed balconies over heated space and insulated walkways in an inverted roof construction. When used in the inverted roof constructions listed in the Fire Performance section below roof constructions incorporating Quantum PLUS+ achieve Broof(t4) Classification to BS EN 13501-5 as required by Approved Document B 2019 edition, Section B4, Limitations on roof coverings. Quantum PLUS+ is not suitable for use in inverted roof applications on specified attachments such as projecting open balconies, projecting enclosed balconies, recessed open balconies or recessed enclosed balconies.
