va-Q-tec, as a pioneer in the vacuum insulation sector, develops innova­tive insulation solutions for various industrial applications. The products based on vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) offer a high insulation effect, enormously reduced insulation thickness and a modular design for a very wide range of sizes and shapes. They are particularly advantageous if there is only little space available for the insulation and nevertheless, very good thermal insulation is required. All va-Q-tec products are the result of intensive development work. They offer our customers crucial added-value and provide answers to basic societal demands such as energy efficiency. The high product quality, controlled by the globally unique, patented va-Q-check® system, makes possible the reliable usage of this durable, highly efficient vacuum insulation.

The possible applications for our insulation technology are very varied. Vacuum insulation panels make it possible to maintain cold and hot temperatures constant, to save space and to reduce energy consump­tion significantly.

Our approach is to save energy through highly efficient thermal insulation solutions. By using vacuum insulation panels, we can reduce the energy consumption of hot water tanks by over 50%. With our highly efficient, high-performance thermal insulation solutions for the heating industry, we make it possible for our customers to offer sustainable solutions. The application areas are very varied and our insulation solutions can be applied to small boilers, heat pumps, combination storage tanks, buffer tanks, seasonal tanks and special tanks (PCM, special shapes).

Laboratory devices such as simulation cabinets need ideal temperature holding properties in order to deliver valid results. In addition to precision and reliable temperature holding time, an optimal ratio of total and effective volume is also an important factor that determines the efficiency of a device. By installing vacuum insulation panels (VIPs), these properties can be guaranteed in an energy- and cost-efficient way. va-Q-tec’s high-performance VIPs, due to their ten times better insulation performance than conventional insulation materials, enable the production of laboratory devices with thinner walls, thus increasing the internal volume of the devices. As a result, they save valuable space inside the laboratory device. At the same time, the effective thermal insulation of VIPs reduces the energy consumption of the equipment.

We offer a large range of highly efficient thermal insulation solutions for many applications and pipes of almost all types. The basis for these system solutions is formed by the related VIPs with their low thermal conductance figures. These panels are integrated into an overall solution that meets the varying geometric, thermal and technical requirements for the relat­ed type of application.

The new FARO thermal protection softshell was developed with the ob­jective of stabilising the temperature of the FocusS or FocusM scanner for operation in extreme environmental conditions, i.e. high atmospheric temperatures of up to + 55 °C and strong, direct sunlight.

Application examples for vacuum insulation in Technics & Industry


Already in 2014, more than a year before the introduction of the first stage of the Ecodesign Directive ErP for heating systems and compo­nents, the successful co-operation between VIESSMANN SAS in Faul­quemont and va-Q-tec AG from Würzburg started. The focus was not only on the usage of highly efficient VIPs, but also on a design that is as effective as possible and on integration into the production process as efficiently as possible.


BINDER is the leading specialist for simu­lation cabinets for scientific and industrial laboratories and is focussed entirely on simulation cabinets. Several thousand ap­pliances leave the works in Tuttlingen each year. The brand image is characterised by cutting-edge technology, innovations and absolute precision.
