can somebody clarify if this item is fire Retardant or not?
The description says "fire retardant class a". Is the description wrong, as well as the manufacturer manual?
I'm planning on using this for a generator enclosure

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear SOH: Yes, but with a few significant caveats:

(1) Not cost effective: Home Depot sells other radiant barrier products that are less expensive, and the 3/8" fiber on one side of this product provides very little R value. Reflectix is a better option, e.g. Reflectix Model # BP48100, Home Depot Internet # 202092205 Store SKU # 469837 Store SO SKU # 441714

Dear SOH: Yes, but with a few significant caveats:

(1) Not cost effective: Home Depot sells other radiant barrier products that are less expensive, and the 3/8" fiber on one side of this product provides very little R value. Reflectix is a better option, e.g. Reflectix Model # BP48100, Home Depot Internet # 202092205 Store SKU # 469837 Store SO SKU # 441714

(2) Installation options: If you have a standard ventilated attic, you have two installation options.

(a) Staple the radiant barrier to the bottom of the rafters in your attic and the surface of the studs in the gable end walls, and seal all of the edges and joints to block air leaks. Use foil HVAC tape to joints, e.g. Nashua Tape Model # 1207792, Home Depot Internet # 100030120 Store SKU # 915245. Use the 'Windows and Doors' version of Great Stuff foam for larger gaps.

(b) Staple the radiant barrier to the top of the ceiling joists, over the insulation that should be filling the joist bays. If the insulation is even deeper and covers the ceiling joists, you can simply lay the radiant barrier over the top of the insulation, taping the joints where possible.

(3) No impact in winter: Radiant barriers do not work in winter because cold cannot be 'reflected' and the warmer air in your home is not radiant. So if you also need to heat your home in the winter, standard insulation with a radiant barrier would be more effective, e.g. Tuff-R foam board applied to the ceiling joists. See: TUFF-R Model # 193829, Home Depot Internet # 100322375 Store SKU # 163524 Store SO SKU # 621947 Seal all of the edges and joints to block air leaks from your home into the attic. Use the same foil HVAC tape and Great Stuff foam noted above.

I hope this is helpful.

Answer: 
Hi there, yes you can use it in your attic. Remember to install the reflective side on the wall or walls where the sun is hitting the attic. In other words you will not see the reflective side when you are inside your attic. You will notice the change in temperature before and after. Hope this answer will help you.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love it so far I feel it's not right to give this product 5 stars because we just installed it But I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations. We needed a good insulator for our sun room floor I will say it was easy to install. We stapled it and reinforced it w tape. I will say use a good sharp pair of scissors to cut it. A box cutter is not good it shredders it October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 4, 2016
