The aim of this work is the development and characterization of insulating panels able to improve performance and sustainability of cladding systems. The material studied is a cellulose based composite (obtained from the recycling processes of paper and cardboard) that contains as additives Phase Change Materials (PCMs). The production process of the insulating panel has been developed, and its properties have been tested in accordance with the normative: the addition of flame retardant and anti-humidity additives demonstrated the possibility to guarantee safety and durability to the product; the addition of rising agents demonstrated the possibility to obtain a lighter structure with better insulation properties. The results obtained have shown the possibility to realize an innovative and sustainable material suitable to replace panels currently used for building envelopes.

Abstract

The aim of this work is the development and characterization of insulating panels able to improve performance and sustainability of cladding systems. The material studied is a cellulose based composite (obtained from the recycling processes of paper and cardboard) that contains as additives Phase Change Materials (PCMs). The production process of the insulating panel has been developed, and its properties have been tested in accordance with the normative: the addition of flame retardant and anti-humidity additives demonstrated the possibility to guarantee safety and durability to the product; the addition of rising agents demonstrated the possibility to obtain a lighter structure with better insulation properties. The results obtained have shown the possibility to realize an innovative and sustainable material suitable to replace panels currently used for building envelopes.
