Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GuajiroyArchie 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by metalman28 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jane No itching insulation
I used this to insulate my wood garage doors at my attach garage. Easy to cut. No itchiness, no funny smell. I used staple gun staple scrap plastic to secure it also add washer to existing screws to secure. The temp before insulate was 20 degree lower than heated area, now is only 10 to 12 degree in this winter where outside is only 30 degree right now.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jcrider Very Good
This is a very good product. Easy to cut and work with and insulating qualities.
Only problem is the pattern on the back of the product is askew. Do not use to cut - you will not get a square cut. Other than that, it is easy to work with. Although we have not had freezing weather yet, I feel it will perform very well and in fact, are happy with product. Used adhesive spray - very good - and insulation tape - also very good. Holds product well on garage door.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nonamegiven Does little for attic.
I have no insulation in our attic apart from some loose blown-in cellulose on the floor. I thought this would help kick the temperature down. I attached the product to the ceiling joists, leaving an air pocket between each one. While the temperature didn't drop, it did feel a bit cooler. But, it definitely wasn't worth it. For the same amount of money that the barrier cost, to cover the attic, you could just buy a small or used swamp cooler that will keep your house, or at least floor, 20 - 30° cooler than the outside.

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 TM1 Couldn't have been any easier!
I used this to insulate and quiet my 1992 Chevy van. It was easy to cut to size with a big scissors. I glued it up with a spray adhesive and taped the seams with aluminum tape. It couldn't have been easier. I'm amazed at how much quieter it is now. Great stuff.
