Porextherm is Gold-Sponsor at IVIS 2013Logo of IVIS 2013


The 11th International Vacuum Insulation Symposium (IVIS) will take place on 19th and 20th of September 2013 in Dübendorf / Switzerland. It is organized by the EMPA, the Swiss research institution for material sciences and technology development.


IVIS has provided an important international forum to stimulate research into the principles and applications of vacuum insulation technology. The last IVIS held in Ottawa / Canada in 2011, was a great success.


IVIS will provide a platform for international VIP experts, researchers, manufacturers, builders, architects, design engineers, energy managers and other stakeholders of the thermal insulation industry. It is the "get together" to accelerate the adaptation of VIP into various applications and to speed up the development of VIP-based innovative products.

Main focus of this year's presentations are on the building and construction applications and the area of white goods. Furthermore, the presenters will provide an interesting view into the future development of high performance insulation.


As the main sponsor Porextherm will give a lecture entitled:

"Thermal conductivity measured at center of panel - that is only half of the truth"


At the forum we will be present with a booth and give attendees the opportunity to interact directly with us.
