Most structural insulated panels (SIPs; also known as stressed skin panels) consist of an insulating foam core sandwiched between sheets of oriented strand board (OSB). SIPs have gained market share in the residential and light commercial building markets because they are quick to assemble and provide excellent energy performance. The insulating core of SIPs is most commonly made from expanded polystyrene (EPS), but extruded polystyrene (XPS), rigid polyurethane foam, mineral wool, or even compressed straw can be used.
