Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory developed GFP thermal insulation technology, which can be used in a host of thermal and acoustic applications in industries ranging from packaging to transportation, aerospace to building.
GFP technology consists of multiple, honeycombed layers of thin, low-e metalized aluminum. These baffled polymer chambers are enveloped by a sealed barrier and filled with either air or a low-conductivity gas. The same proven technology is also used in low-e double- and triple-paned gas filled windows.
Fi-Foil licensed this GFP technology and perfected the manufacturing process for large-scale production. The company now holds the exclusive licensing rights to GFP technology for use in residential and commercial insulation applications.
Fi-Foil's advanced GFP technology out-performs conventional insulation by many measures, and has been tested in accordance with international ASTM standards.
What makes GFP technology even more attractive is its versatility. Its defining features include:
With its thin profile and advanced thermal insulation properties, GFP technology is ideal for use in various new & existing residential and
commercial construction applications,
GFP insulation can also be combined with phase charge materials (PCM) and other insulation products for system solutions.
