IPSIIS team is pleased to see some IPSIIS foams (recently labelled “Efficient Solution” by Solar Impulse Foundation) in “Fisher Fine Arts Library Material Collection” by University of Pennsylvania, USA.
Fisher Fine Arts Library hosts thousands of samples ranging from traditional construction materials to emergent and novel samples. The aim of the collection is to bring together innovation and creativity in order to advance conceptualization through tactile exploration. In addition, more than 5000 samples are available at their open-access library of images.
The picture shows the example of IPSIIS foam C, manufactured using industry waste (Burgundy stone cutting sludges) (non-flammable mineral foam, 70 mW/m/K, 250 kg/m3).
