Home Aluminium Foil Tape Reflective Aluminum Foil Insulation

Reflective aluminum foil insulation is a type of insulation that uses a sheet of aluminum foil to reflect heat back into the building or object it is insulating. It is made of a thin layer of aluminum foil that is laminated to a backing material, such as paper or plastic. The foil reflects radiant heat, which is reinforced with Scrim in side, while the backing material provides structural support. Aluminum foil is safe as an insulating material because it does not release any hazardous fibers.

 

Reflective aluminum foil insulation can be combined with many types of insulation materials in reflective insulation systems. In these combinations, radiant barriers can act as the thermal insulation’s facing material. Reflective aluminum foil radiant barriers are installed outside of the Glass wool, Rock wool, mineral wool, foam insulation materials. It as radiant barriers and vapor barriers can lower cooling costs 5% to 10%.

 

Most common insulation materials work by slowing conductive heat flow and – to a lesser extent — convective heat flow. Radiant barriers and aluminum foil insulation systems work by reducing radiant heat gain. To be effective, the reflective surface must face an air space. Dust accumulation on the reflective surface will reduce its reflective capability. The radiant barrier should be installed in a manner to minimize dust accumulation on the reflective surface.

 

Reflective aluminum foil insulation is used in a variety of applications, including:

Home insulation: It can be used to insulate walls, ceilings, and floors.
Commercial insulation: It can be used to insulate buildings, such as warehouses and factories.
Industrial insulation: It can be used to insulate pipes, tanks, and other equipment.
Vehicle insulation: It can be used to insulate cars, trucks, and boats.
