Low thermal conductivity

Depending on the facings and thickness, PU can achieve a thermal conductivity as low as 0,022 W/mK to 0,028 W/mK.

This makes it one of the most efficient insulation materials available on the market. When compared to other materials, a much lower thickness of PU insulation is needed to get the same level of performance.
