Published attempts to use VIPs (Vacuum Insulation Panels) to improve the thermal performance of cool boxes had found that VIPs do not yield their expected benefits, often only realising 2.5 to 3 times the improvement over PU (Polyurethane) rather than the expected 5 fold benefit (Kacimi and Labranque, 2011; Brown et al., 2007). Later work (Hammond and Micic, 2013) relating to ULT (Ultra low temperature) freezers showed that around 86% of the expected benefit of VIPs would be realised though embedding them into the wall of the PU foam.
