Radiant Barrier Foil - History
barrier is an amazing product with an array of uses--some common, some not so common.
It has been utilized in commercial products--such as flasks and thermal canteens--since
the 1870s for its superior insulative qualities, and it was used as early as the
1920s in building materials to dramatically increase energy efficiency. Radiant
heat barrier construction materials gained in popularity during the
following decades and were widely used until the 1960s when the company that had
manufactured the products went out of business. Starting in the 1950s, scientists
at NASA began to utilize versatile reflective materials in the space program, and
they continue to do so today. The 1980s saw a resurgence in radiant barrier foil
usage for construction purposes. Today it is utilized in commercial properties,
homes, agricultural facilities, and anywhere else people want to maximize energy
efficiency and indoor climate control.
