Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandOverFist 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by L111 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LotusGH 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.

Product is easy to handle and provided a good repair to the existing insulation in the basement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andy 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.
