Are Steel Insulated Panels are future building Materials ?

Structural insulated panels gaining popularity in residential constructions and now on increasing demand in india due to its energy saving properties.

What is SIP -  SIP ie.  structural insulated panels are made of thick layer material sandwiched with foam or insulation between both layers of metal.

Steel insulation panels are ecofriendly and use recycled material and foam that is used in between the steel layers is 98% air tight and a nontoxic nonflammable agent.


Advantages- Steel SIP technology has excellent thermal performance due to its integral insulation avoid the need of any other insulation. These panels are pre engineered in controlled environment and fastest building material more than 3 times than conventional buildings. The labour cost is also cheap and fitting is also tight due to two way bolting.


Disadvantage- The major drawback is that ones you finalise the design and it is ready you can not make any changes on that.

Applications -  Wide applications on exterior walls,  roof,  floor and foundation systems.


SIP technology is a new technology and highly energy saver due to its excellent insulation and air tightness. Many type of materials and insulators available now a days but be aware that panel surface must be waterproof.
