Topic Cluster "Insulation Materials and Façade Systems"

An introductory learning unit covers insulation materials' engineering properties, such as heat transfer coefficient (U value), reaction to fire, vapour diffusion resistance factor (µ) and specific heat storage capacity.

A second learning unit deals with the various groups of insulation materials: raw materials and manufacture, areas of application, installing and practical tips, health and safety aspects, and ultimate disposal are covered in detail.

Subsequent units present various insulation and façade systems. This involves alternative structures for outside walls (with the appropriate insulation systems); one unit explains when insulating on the inside makes sense, and what needs to be taken into practical account in such cases.
