RIfI are world leaders at measuring the thermal properties of insulation materials in the the temperature range of 103 K to 343 K. The vast majority of these materials are foam insulations which are used in floating vessels and onshore facilities which transport and store refrigerants and cryogenic gases.


RIfI is also conducting novel research into investigating the thermal properties of new composite sandwich structures and reinforced polymers for aerospace and automotive applications. 

RIfI and the Institute of Cryogenics can conduct thermal measurements down to 4 K using the Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS).
