Measuring the U-Value of new GPC building materials with the gSKIN U-Value Kit.

Researchers from the College of Engineering at the UAE University (Ahmed Hassan, Yasir Rashid, Abdel-Hamid I. Mourad and Mohammad Shakeel Laghari) and the Wellington Institute of Technology in New Zealand (Najif Ismail) used our U-Value kit to assess the thermal performance of geopolymer-coated polyurethane foam–phase change material capsules and geopolymer concrete composites.

The first kind of materials is widely used to improve the thermal performance of building envelopes. The latter is an emerging construction material that can effectively handle industrial waste and reduce cementitious material, but its thermal performance is poorly studied. The combination of both materials needs further research in order to find the best solutions and applications. 

In this recently published paper, the before mentioned researchers also studied the thermal and structural properties of a combination of both materials to develop a thermally enhanced alkali-activated geopolymer concrete (GPC).

The experimental setup, including sample preparation and measurement results with the U-Value Kit as well as the discussion of the results, can be found in a paper published in the journal Materials.
