Sandwich panels are construction materials manufactured by combining layers of insulating materials and binding agents. The composite layers between the metals are bonded under high pressure. These panels have the ability to protect the interior from extreme weather conditions, fire hazards, and sound. Moreover, the lightweight, strong insulation, structural integrity, and large durability properties make them the largely preferred panel as compared to other traditional roof panels in a number of applications. Sandwich panels are widely used in applications such as rural area construction and cold storage warehouses owing to its properties such as easy to install, require no maintenance, and cost effectiveness.
Sandwich panels are used for roofs, walls of the buildings, and building enclosures of air conditioning devices, industrial equipment, etc. The metal lining in the panel protects against weather conditions such as snow or rain and also used as a decorative material. Sandwich panels are widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, and warehouses and cold storage facilities.
Various end-use industries are focusing on adoption of sandwich panels in roofing, walls, side panels, decorative applications. Moreover, the adoption of sandwich panels is increasing in developed and developing countries owing to stringent government norms regarding energy conservation.
High cost coupled with concerns related to the quality of raw materials is estimated to affect the adoption of sandwich panels in construction applications.
