What is TempShield® Reflective Insulation?
TempShield® Reflective Insulation products consist of one or two layers of Barrier Bubble™ material laminated between two layers of aluminum foil to provide excellent thermal resistance. The bubble contains a nylon-polyethylene air retention layer designed to provide increased strength and puncture resistance and to maintain consistent R-values.
How Radiant Heat Transfers Through Roofs
TempShield® is used as insulation against radiant heat transfer and can be used to its greatest advantage in instances where radiation is the predominant means of heat transfer. It is the bright aluminized film surface of all TempShield® products that gives it its insulating properties. This happens in two ways:
Thin, lightweight TempShield® provides resistance against the three types of heat flow: conduction, convection, and radiation. It forms an effective barrier against moisture, air currents, and vapors while resisting mold, fungus, insects, and nesting rodents.
Easy to Use
TempShield® is lightweight, compact, and pliable; yet resistant to punctures, tears and cracking. Installation is quick and simple, and it conforms easily to fit complex shapes.
Outstanding Safety, Health, and Environmental Benefits
These products are clean, non-toxic, and fire-retardant (Class A/Class 1, flame and smoke spread). No special clothing or protective mask is necessary for handling or installation. As an environmental bonus, they are made with 20% recycled plastic.
Cost-Effective and Versatile
TempShield® is an economical solution for a wide range of industrial, manufacturing, and consumer applications. It costs about half as much or less than the common conventional insulation.
