HIP project

Develop insulating polymers for refrigerated transport, heating and cooling installations.

Project duration: 2009-2011

Highly insulating polymers (HIP) is an EU Framework 7 funded research project.

  • The goal is to develop low cost, highly insulating polymers for refrigerated transport, heating and cooling installations.
  • Norner is responsible for scaling up the process and has made polymers in a small 75 ml reactor. We are now putting the equipment for testing formulations of up to 5 liters.
  • HIP is consortium of SME's and SME Association Group working together for 36 months to develop an innovative new class of polymer insulation materials based on high internal phase emulsion templating (HIPE).
