Innovation built on experience

va-Q-vip B


va-Q-vip B is a vacuum insulation panel for construction applications.

va-Q-vip B is covered with a high barrier film and an additional black glass fibre textile for mechanical shock protection. The core itself is non-combustible (Fire class A1 in Europe). The va-Q-vip B with black glass fabric is inflammable (Construction materials class DIN 4102-B2).

va-Q-vip B is approved for general construction purposes in accordance with the approval number Z-23.11-1658, of the “Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBT)”.

va-Q-vip B panels have smooth edges and sharp corners due to special “edge fold technique va-Q-seam” so individual panels can therefore be joined almost seamlessly.


  • va-Q-vip B can be used in building applications for ceilings, walls, floors, flat roofs, top floor ceilings, exterior insulation behind panelling and insulation in wood frame construction.
  • Planners, installation partners or architects are responsible for the relevant specific insulation system. Application systems for buildings can also be discussed directly with Proctor Group Australia.


  • Official approval for building material with assigned thermal conductivity 0.007 W/mK
  • Significantly reduced heat flows from minimal thickness
  • Saves space thus providing a much larger usable floor areas or ceiling heights
  • Extra protective layer for reliable installation
