The excellent effect of Neopor® insulating materials offers architects, engineers, manual workers and builders significant advantages in building practice. Neopor® contains minute particles of graphite that absorb or reflect infrared radiation. Boards made from it therefore insulate up to 20 percent more efficiently than conventional EPS.
Vastly improved insulating effects can be achieved with Neopor®, particularly with very low bulk densities. The diagram shows that Neopor insulating materials with a bulk density of 15 kg/m3 for example achieve a thermal conductivity of 0.032 W/(m·K). In normal EPS with the same bulk density, the thermal conductivity is 0.037 W/(m·K).
