What Is Bubble Foil Insulation Radiant Barrier
Radiant GUARD® Bubble Reflective Insulation Provides Multiple Benefits
Bubble insulation products consist of two layers of bubble material
laminated between layers of aluminum foil to provide excellent thermal resistance.
The bubble contains an air retention layer designed to provide increased
strength and puncture resistance.
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.
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
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
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
industrial, manufacturing and consumer applications.
Typical Applications for Radiant Barrier Bubble Foil Insulation
- Commercial and residential building
- Insulation for food and drug shipping
