A Guide to SIPs | Homebuilding & Renovating13 Jan 2011 ... According to Simon Hunt from SIPS EcoBuild, there are two different types of insulant that can be used between the panels: The first one is the closed-cell polyurethane (PU) foam; the second is an expanded polystyrene (EPS). While the PU has a 20% better insulation value, it also costs more by about the same percentage. Alex Hyslop from Kingspan TEK concurs: A Polystyrene SIP will typically result in a thicker full wall construction than urethane due to its ...

The Disadvantages of Structural Insulated Panels | Career Trendstructural insulated panels, sometimes referred to as SIPs, are composed of laminate with a foam core that is between 4 and 8 inches thick with a structural facing, such as drywall or plywood, on each side.
