Customer Questions & Answers

Can i use it on water heater?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: DIYI
Correction Necessary – per the comment from the “ReflectixTechnicalGroup” – this application provides the highest level of benefit with a spacer installation. Please refer to the June 3, 2016 response from the Reflectix Customer Service - thank you. Reflectix Technical Group

What is it made out of? Aluminum?

It looks like aluminum but I cannot find the material contents anywhere.
Asked by: Ladyfingers
Dear LadyFingers and other Home Depot customers: The new reply from someone in the Reflectix Technical Group is curious. He / she stated: "Respectfully, the responder from Mass. is in error. Reflectix assembly R-values are valid year around. Our products are tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam, in a ASTM C1363 Hot Box." First, Reflectix is NOT tested in the same manner as fiberglass and foam insulation. You can see this on the Home Depot website. Fiberglass and foam board are tested as materials, with an R value per inch of thickness -- e.g. R-13 for 3.5" of Owens Corning fiberglass, and R-5 per inch with Foamular foam board. Reflectix is always tested as part of an assembly, e.g. a simulated wall with 2x4 studs, dry wall, an air space and layer of Reflectix. Why? Because the shiny bubble wrap that Reflectix is made from has very little R value -- only R-1. The sealed air gap that you must build / create provides almost all of the claimed R values, not the bubble wrap by itself. Second, the performance of Reflectix and other radiant barriers varies with the temperature -- better in summer and poor in winter. In a cathedral ceiling, for example, Reflectix claims R7 in summer but only R1 in winter in the northern USA. Why? Because cold cannot be 'reflected' and warmer air inside your home does not create much infrared (radiant) energy. Reflectix should provide ASTM test reports that show R-value performance in summer AND winter temperatures for each assembly, and post these reports on their website. I look forward to more detailed information from the Reflectix Technical Group. Mark

Are the air bubbles separated so it can be cut to size without flattening bubbles not cut into?

how heat resistant is this?

we have an outside patio with plastic roof panels and want to use the propane patio heater. There is only about 18" clearance from the top of the heater to the roof panels, and we are afraid they might melt or catch fire with the heat of the patio heater. Would this be a good barrier to put on? How much heat and for how long can it hold?

16 in. x 25 ft. Double Reflective Insulation with Staple Tab is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love this stuff. I have 2 shops ( metal and wood) in outside buildings. I used this insulation because it both insulates, and reflects light / heat. The result is a well lit shop, that stays warm with just a small space heater. I wish it cost a little less, but I still think it's a good value. Be sure to get the Reflectix silver tape to seal the joints, or any holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Comfort I was in the process of remodeling my home which is 36 years old. I started in the Formal Living Room that has an a shared wall to the garage. Looking arround at The Home Depo I discovered Reflectix, as a thin insulator and radient heat/moisture barier. Essentially I replaced the old R 11 insulation with R13 and put the reflectix over it leaving a 1/2 inch space between the drywall and the Reflectix. Also I purchased 2 1/2 inch aluminum tape and taped every stud, header and electrical outlet to seal it to the Reflectix. Over 2 years time I have done 90% of the first floor of my home this way. Prior to reinsulating I ran my gas furnace at about 74 to 76 degrees for adverage winter comfort. Today for the same comfort level we are down to 67 degrees. The furnace cycles a lot less and not as long when it is on. Also the drafty chill is gone. Another benefit we have found, is that when we have lost power in the winter, the house dosen't chill up as fast and the gas fireplace is able to do a reasonable job of keeping us comfortable for the short period without a furnace. This product installed as I have done is well worth the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, immediate results I used this product to insulate bare metal ductwork in my basement, in conjunction with the 48" version (the 16" width fit perfectly in between floor beams.) It went on easily, taped together well, and provided immediately noticeable results (air conditioning felt much colder out of vents being fed by insulated ducts.) My only advice would be to use "real" metal tape (not the metalized cloth type that we all have lying around the house) and to insulate every last bend and gap in the ductwork, which when all added up make a significant contribution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great product and does what it claims and worth the money. One word of advise. Use staples equal to or LONGER than 1/2" if stapling to wood. Use regular staples and not the round ones either. The reason is that if you use a shorter staple, it will decrease the space gap underneath in the bubble stuff in the middle thus reducing it's effectiveness. I could actually feel the difference in heat behind a piece of plywood where I had used shorter staples. Luckily this product is very forgiving and I pulled out the shorter staples and used longer ones. Just wish this came in a wider format too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to work with. I used this product to insulate a 30 gal. plastic bin that I turned into a shelter for feral/stray cats. Using this product was much easier that other methods for building homemade insulated shelters. The project was completed in one night. Since the temperature dropped below freezing the last couple of nights, the stray cats took to their new home immediately. My only disappointment was that I had to order it from another state because none of my local Home Depots carried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for homebrewers doing BIAB I wrap my kettle with reflectix during the mash and it really helps maintain the mash temperature. I lose about 1 F during the summer and 2 F during the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mulitple Uses Great over all product, used it to insulate air ducts in the basement and to make a water heater blanket. Also used it in the summer to make panels to reflect the hot summer sun from a few unshaded windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from thumbs up easy to install with stapler or hammer tacker. depending on how you install, it adds R value of circa 8 to 12. tape the seams on the inside of the wall with foil tape and it is also a moisture barrier. directions are not clear because it has so many uses, but put your fibreglass insulation in the wall and then apply this as a moisture barrier. great stuff!
