For thermal insulating vehicles usually, lightweight materials are used, such as polymeric foams or microfiber insulations. But, the use of novel so-called super insulation materials can also be a good solution for this. Vacuum insulation panels can be reliable insulators for electric vehicles, too. In the paper, we will give a comprehensive review of possible applications of aerogels, polymeric foams, and microfiber insulations. Moreover, a brief introduction will be given about their thermal properties, especially focused on thermal conductivity and compressibility. Finding appropriate solutions for the aircraft industry is very important. There are several requirements for materials used by aircraft to fulfil the tightening demands, such as low weight, good noise and thermal insulation.
