PUR/PIR sector challenges - lambda value
What is the lambda value and why is it so important in the thermal insulation industry? Is there a limit to which it can be reduced? Apart from being a physical property, the thermal conductivity coefficient which is so often talked about in the thermal insulation industry, determines the class of an insulation material, which in turn directly affects the market position and price of a given product. It is no wonder, after all, as the value of an insulation product should be determined by the product's ability to reduce heat loss. The question is: How far does this ability go?
