Dear Jeff: NO. The blue colored side of UltraTouch is made from cotton, which is flammable. In addition, do not use any foam board or foam based product, which are also very flammable.

The best option to insulate your furnace is Roxul rock wool, which is not flammable and provides R-4 insulation per inch. They make a board-like version called ComfortBoard that is easy to install, just like foam

The best option to insulate your furnace is Roxul rock wool, which is not flammable and provides R-4 insulation per inch. They make a board-like version called ComfortBoard that is easy to install, just like foam board. You can order it from your Home Depot Pro or Customer Service Desk. You can also use standard Roxul ComfortBatt to fill spaces around your furnace and the exhaust vent.; it is much denser than fiberglass, molds kind of like clay and stays where you put it. See: Roxul Model # RXCB351525, Home Depot Internet #202090820 Store SKU #974419

Answer: 
No, definitely not. Most furnaces have tolerances for heat and if insulted they may get too hot. Insulate the room where the furnace is, but not the furnace.

Dear Radu: You can find additional info on the manufacturer's website: BondedLogic dot com. According to their standard "Material Safety Data Sheet", UltraTouch insulation should not be exposed to "...prolonged temperatures exceeding 250 F." The ICC testing standard on their website also notes, "The insulation shall not be installed over recessed light fixtures that are not insulated or against any heat Read More
Dear Radu: You can find additional info on the manufacturer's website: BondedLogic dot com. According to their standard "Material Safety Data Sheet", UltraTouch insulation should not be exposed to "...prolonged temperatures exceeding 250 F." The ICC testing standard on their website also notes, "The insulation shall not be installed over recessed light fixtures that are not insulated or against any heat producing appliance. "

So... this would not be the right type of insulation to use for a generator enclosure, which is definitely a source of heat. Foam board is also out for the same reason.

The best choice would be Roxul stone wool, which provides R-4 insulation per inch and is not flammable. Roxul makes a soft board-like version that would be a good option. See: Roxul Model # RXCB11224, Home Depot Internet #206789748 Store SKU #1001748089. Roxul also makes a version that is available with foil facing which would be easy to clean, called RockBoard 60. You can order it via your Home Depot's Customer Service or Pro Desk.

I hope this is helpful.

Curtain-style insulating barrier?

This question is from 48 in. x 6 ft. Radiant Barrier
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
September 12, 2016
Our boiler is located in a large basement room. We'd like to keep a portion of that same room (where we store wine) from heating up too much from the boiler. If we curtained off a portion of the room using the radiant barrier (hanging from ceiling to floor), would it reduce the temperature in the curtained-off area? Is this product effective when used as free-hanging/curtain-style insulation, or does it need to be installed against a wall or other surface?

Answer: 
Hi,
In my opinion this barrier should not be used as free-hanging; It would reduce the temp some but any insulation should be installed against another surface and be stationary. In addition, I would not be comfortable with the insulation material used in open air, as the fibers would infiltrate the air and possibly pose a health risk..Jeff

Answer: 
While the material could effectively reduce some heat, it is in your best interest to build a simple 2 x 6 stud bay separating the boiler room from where you store wine. Insert 5 1/2" R-21 poly-iso board into your stud bay to separate the boiler room from the wine. You can finish the stud bay with dry wall and paint if you like.

48 in. x 6 ft. Radiant Barrier is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed This was not a conventional use for the product by any means. I used it to replace the 50 year old cab roof insulation in a 1967 El Camino that I had completely disassembled. At 1/4 the cost of automotive solutions it was a no brainer for me. Product was easily trimmed with scissors and glued foil side up for a nice flat installation. I suspect it will outlast me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from radiant barrier Radiant barrier is used in lining our duct work that we custom build. Not only does it reduce noise, but is an excellent insulation factor. It's also made from recycled cotton denim material and is safe to use. Most duct work if insulation is done had fiberglass products lining it, which is a known carcigen (cancer). We prefer to give our customers the best and safest product in their homes. Home Depot has great delivery and pricing on radiant barrier.

It was used between Dynamat and 1lb Mass Loaded Vinyl on my Jeep for sound deadening. Now my ride is more quiet than the best luxury car. The material is easy to handle and use. I used scissors for cutting. The insulation is not itchy when touched. It lays nice on horizontal surfaces and spray adhesive works great overhead or on vertical surfaces. When I used this I made a pattern out of thick clear plastic sheeting that I used for the Dynamat, then for this Radiant Barrier, then for the Mass Loaded Vinyl. Normal pattern making w/ cutting darts permitted this to lay flat and tight against the irregularly shaped surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what I expected. Bought this to use as a lightweight sound and heat barrier for my '69 Lotus Elan + 2 to replace the disintegrating jute padding. It reduced the heat level very well and the sound level a noticeably amount. You need a pair of heavy duty scissors to cut it which I also bought at HD. This was my second purchase to do the boot. <:). Liked the no itch padding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Used to insulate a van. The reflectix side helped control the temperature differential between inside and outside while the recycled denim side helped dampen the outside noises significantly.
Date published: 2016-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I ordered this product because a friend recommended it. Well, I will do the same, it is a great product, I used to insulate my van and I will have to say it is the best thing considering the other products out there. So far, I can feel the difference inside my van, and I live in Florida, temperatures over 100 during the summertime, but now I can feel the difference inside my van, much cooler. Recommended again to anyone who wants to do a small insulation job, and get good results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insulation We got this to (hopefully) block the cold air from coming up thru our cab-over bed on our truck camper. It seems like a great solution, but we haven't had a chance yet to truly test it. However, it does seem to be the kind of product that will do the trick, so we are hopeful. Since the dimension doesn't match our mattress size, we cut it to fit. The only thing to allow for is the shedding of insulation side. It has irritating fibers, including micro metal pieces, which are itchy. Other than that we are optimistic that it will help keep our bed area warmer in cold conditions. Reasonable price & easy to adapt to purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for. Priced right and delivered on time. I'm using this material for a small isolation booth/music room. Specifically, as a layer of sound proofing treatment sandwiched between studs and OSB ply (rather than joist tape). Very easy to work with and very good quality.
