Aluminum Insulation Benefits
Every day, in perhaps a dozen different ways, we see just how adaptable and useful aluminum is in just about every area of the home. At about one-third of the weight of other metals, this versatile element is extremely light, flexible and more resistant to corrosion than other more expensive metals. The metal's exceptional reflectivity and heat conductivity make it ideal for aluminum insulation and other construction applications.
In addition to these features, aluminum possesses a number of other attributes that make it perfect for use in aluminum insulation, including:
- Malleable, strong for its weight
- Thermally reflective, a trait that means is effective at blocking radiant heat
- Nontoxic and ductile, making it easy to fabricate
- Recyclable and abundant, which makes it affordable
These attributes make aluminum and ideal choice as an economical insulation for residential and commercial homes. Because a majority of heat gain is via radiant heat transfer, an aluminum insulation blocking 97% of radiant heat can provide significant insulative benefits.
