Research at London’s Brunel University has indicated that using perlite as a “volcanic popcorn” insulation material could reduce building insulation costs by 30%.
Vacuum insulation panels made with a core
of perlite have been projected to reduce building insulation
costs by 30% based on research conducted by a team at Brunel
University in London, UK.
Led by Harjit Singh, the research found that vacuum
insulation panels could have perlite "volcanic popcorn" added
