Our Reflex-Air reflective insulation can provide R-Values as high as R-17, however, the r-value is completely dependent on where and how the product is installed. Any
reflective product that is approximately ¼” thick can only achieve an r-value of
approximately 1 to 1.5. The additional r-value is achieved by the DEAD air space around the reflective product; in other words the still
dead airspace is what provides the insulation assembly the additional r-value. For specific applications based on heat flow directions and enclosed air spaces of specified depths,
installation instructions along with their R-Values.
Because there is very little difference between single and double bubble
r-values for the product itself, we recommend our single bubble products. We stock our single bubble products and ship same day if the order is received by 4:00
If you are looking for a double bubble product, please
contact us for pricing.
For a 20 roll minimum order, our Reflex-Air™ reflective insulation bubble wrap products can be produced in 16", 24", 48", 72", and 96" widths and of varying lengths. We offer straight edge, staple tab and tape tab versions. Please call us for a quote..
RadiantGUARD® Reflex-Air™ reflective insulation products consist of one or two layers of a bubble wrap insulation material laminated between layers of metalized film to provide excellent thermal resistance. The reflective insulation contains an air retention layer designed to provide increased strength and puncture resistance.
Our Reflex-Air™ bubble insulation products are industrialized, not basic bubble wrap packaging, that are manufactured to last and maintain the enclosed air space. The independently enclosed bubble insulation layers are sealed with multiple layers of polyester creating closed air bubbles which prevent the loss of air and carry a 10 year warranty.
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® Reflex-Air™ reflective bubble insulation is considerably more effective than conventional insulations in reducing radiant heat transfer.
RadiantGUARD® Reflex-Air™ reflective bubble insulation reflects up to 96% of radiant energy in addition to resisting conductive and convective heat transfers thus providing effective insulation.
