What is Reflective Insulation

Pin It

RadiantGUARD® reflective insulation products consist of one or two layers of bubble material laminated between layers of aluminum foil to provide excellent thermal resistance. The bubble layers are designed to provide increased strength and puncture resistance and aide in the reduction of condensation when used in metal buildings, pole barns, and agricultural facilities.

Insulation is used to either contain heat for maintaining warmth, or to resist heat for maintaining cold. In many applications, radiation is the dominant mode of heat transfer. RadiantGUARD® Bubble is considerably more effective than conventional insulations in reducing radiant heat transfer.

RadiantGUARD® Bubble reflects up to 95-97% of radiant energy in addition to resisting other types of heat transfer thus providing effective insulation.

Bubble insulation is ideal for crawl spaces, radiant floor heating, and basic floor heat retention applications as well as for insulating pole barns, post frame, and metal and steel buildings.

Bubble insulation is an excellent vapor barrier and it's important to remember to butt all edges next to each other during installation and tape all seams to ensure an air tight vapor barrier.

Our bubble insulation radiant barrier products consist of *TWO* layers of bubble insulation material laminated between layers of our radiant barrier aluminum foil to provide excellent thermal resistance. The bubble insulation material contains an air retention layer designed to provide increased strength and puncture resistance and reduce conductive heat while the foil side(s) BLOCK 95-97% of the radiant heat.

WHITE/Foil  bubble insulation is designed for applications where non-cured concrete will come in contact with the insulation (heated floor slab installations) or metal building installations where an aesthetic indoor look is desired.

NOTE:  Always place WHITE side towards any non-cured cement mixtures.  Foil side will corrode if it comes in contact with non-cured cement.

High-Efficiency Performance of Radiant Barrier Bubble Insulation

Thin, lightweight material provides resistance against the three types of heat flow: conduction, convection and radiation. It forms an effective barrier against moisture, air currents and vapors, and does not does not provide a growth medium or nutritive value for fungus, insects, or rodents.

Radiant Barrier Bubble Insulation Is Easy to Use

Lightweight, compact and pliable yet resistant to punctures, tears and cracking. Conforms easily to fit complex shapes. Installation is quick and simple.

Radiant Barrier Bubble Insulation Has Outstanding Safety, Health and Environmental Benefits

Clean, non-toxic, fire-retardant (Class A & Class 1) and made with 20% recycled plastic. No special clothing or protective equipment is necessary for handling or installation.

Radiant Barrier Bubble Insulation Is Cost-Effective and Versatile

An economical solution for a wide range of industrial, manufacturing and consumer applications.
