Would this be the best material to cover pink fiberglass insulation?

I am not concerned about insulation in the basement or heating. I just want the pink FG insulation covered. I have read that it's dangerous to have exposed (inhaling it).

If this isn't best, can you please recommend a better DIY cheap material. I need about 10x10 feet covered


I asked a previous question but since I couldn't follow up on that thread, I am posting again.

Thanks!

Answer: 
I think it would work very well for this purpose. Make sure that the shiny side is facing up away from the insulation.
However if you are using it for this purpose it will really seal off your insulation making an airtight seal and further raising the R Value.

You don't say what type of existing insulation you have. If it has asbestos (insulation used to) then you need to cover it without disturbing it. It might be a good time to remove old insulation and replace it with new. Then cover it with the barrier. Also removing or removing asbestos insulation in any way should be done by an expert in asbestos removal. Newer insulation does not have asbestos so I don't believe it is dangerous except during installation. So use appropriate protection. Read Less

Answer: 
Dear Jess: You could simply staple standard poly sheet to the ceiling / floor joists, to cover the fiberglass. Use thick 6 mil sheet, not thin stuff. See: HDX Model # RSHD610-25C, Home Depot Internet # 204711657 Store SKU # 756377

To improve the appearance, you could then install drywall or ceiling tiles. For example: Model # 271, Home Depot Internet # 202617207 Store SKU # 410227

Answer: 
Yes, you could unroll and secure it to joists to provide a cleaner appearance and boost insulation value. If you secure with staples, they should be sufficiently long. The product isn't heavy. I would secure it with the foil side facing in.

I don't see why not. But it is not very durable so expect to get rips in it if you hit it with anything.

Dear Jess: Yes, but it will provide very little improvement in your insulation. This UltraTouch product is only 3/8" thick, with an R value of less than 2. Plus, basement ceilings are typically not insulated in modern construction -- unless the basement is unheated. "Reflective insulation" is also ineffective in the winter, because cold cannot be 'reflected' and warm air is not radiant.

Dear Jess: Yes, but it will provide very little improvement in your insulation. This UltraTouch product is only 3/8" thick, with an R value of less than 2. Plus, basement ceilings are typically not insulated in modern construction -- unless the basement is unheated. "Reflective insulation" is also ineffective in the winter, because cold cannot be 'reflected' and warm air is not radiant.

So... all of this raises a couple of key questions: (1) Is your basement unheated? and (2) If it is heated, why do you want to insulate the ceiling? Please post another question with more details and I would be happy to provide some suggestions.

I hope this is helpful,

Car floorboard - I have a mid engine car and would like to keep heat out of the trunk. I've seen two opposing answers stating which direction to put the foil. Does it go next to the heat source or material next to the heat source?

Answer: 
Radiant barriers and reflective insulation systems work by reducing radiant heat gain. To be effective, the reflective surface must face an air space.

I used this product to protect wood cabinets from the heat of the dishwasher. I put the foil side toward the dishwasher (heat source) but mounted felt side on the cabinets. That is the way I understood the installation instructions and it seems to be working fine. I cannot feel any heat at all on the cabinet while the dishwasher is running. However the inside of the dishwasher seems much hotter than before. The way I have installed the barrier precludes any heat or humidity escaping from the dishwasher until I open the door.
For use in an automobile trunk the foil should go in the down position toward the vehicle undercarriage.
I believe it will work fine in the trunk of the car although the barrier has a thickness, probably 1/4 to 1/2 inch which might not work depending on the installation method and location that is used. The barrier also can tear easily so you need to install it so that you don't load and unload stuff directly on it. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 99 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for miscellaneous / unusual insulation needs While having new tile flooring installed in my house, we had to remove the dishwasher so they could tile under it. I noticed that the gray poly fiber insulation around my Whirlpool dishwasher was disintegrating. Simply touching it would cause it to fall apart and flake off as dust and fibers. We vacuumed all of it off, but we were then left with the bare plastic tub of the dishwasher, which was very loud and hot. I found this radiant barrier right away on the Home Depot web site, but because it is an online only product, I went to the store to try and find something I could use right away. I looked at water heater blankets, but the single one that was available in my store was fiberglass and looked like it would be a mess to cut and fit to my dishwasher. So I ordered two pieces of this radiant barrier, which arrived at my local store several days sooner than the HD web site estimated. Pickup at the store was a breeze as usual. This product is very neat stuff. The actual padding is like shredded denim or cloth fibers, so there is no mess or hassle of dealing with fiberglass. It's relatively thin, so easier to tuck into tighter spots than puffy insulation. It's very smooth, flat, and uniform, making it easy to form around corners and crevices. It is fairly tough stuff, so I ended up using EMT medic shears to cut it rather than scissors. It took some effort to cut, but the medic shears worked great and produced nice clean straight cuts. The reflective backing is a thin plastic material with fiber reinforcement, and it is well bonded to the fiber layer. The fiber material didn't separate at all, and it did not produce any mess or dust when cut, so there was zero mess to clean up. I covered my dishwasher with one full sheet of the barrier and figured out how I was going to cut it to fit. I made a few cuts with my shears, and the tailored barrier fit the dishwasher like a glove. I used a hot glue gun to attach the barrier to the dishwasher tub. The hot glue worked well, and held the barrier material in place perfectly. To cover a few long seams, I picked up a roll of the foil HVAC tape, just to keep that cool silver space age look. The foil tape worked great with the radiant barrier, sealing up the seams. I am not sure how the hot glue will hold up over time with the heat of the dishwasher, but I can check in a year or two and upgrade to a different glue if necessary. A single sheet completely covered the dishwasher, and I had a few small remnants left. I returned the second one that I bought back at my local store. This stuff is awesome. Based on the reviews, it seems like there are dozens of uses for it. May 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product for car audio enhancement and road noise This product is similar to or better than what high end auto manufactures use with the addition of 3M sound dampener pads in the doors and the interior quarter panels to give you that quiet ride. With the appropriate amount of both products used in the the doors and panels the stereo sounds great, the long rides on the highway is now a pleasure, and my 2002 Mazda Protege5 feels like any great luxury auto usually does.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works on Electric Smoker I installed this product on my electric smoker with high temp aluminum tape. The smoker is cool to the touch and I was able to turn down the power levels to the electric burner. Easy to cut with scissors and the insulation is a cloth type material which does not give off any smells and does not cause itching. May 10, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product easy to use We are using this product to insulate the floor of an 1985 Corvette. To help creat a stronger sound barrier. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Radiant Barrier I noticed that the counter tops and floor cabinets adjacent to our new dish washer were getting hot while running the washer even when wrapped with the insulation supplied by the installation kit. I was able to fit this radiant barrier around the top, back, and two sides and then no more heat on the adjacent cabinets and counter tops. One 48" by 6' roll was enough for the entire job which took less than two hours. (including measuring and cutting the pieces) Since all the framing around the dishwasher was wood, I was able to get it all in place with a staple gun. February 23, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product This insulation is perfect for a floorboard heat and sound barrier. Good weight and thickness. March 15, 2016
