We actually used it to pad a table. The table base is a large spool and we cut a 60" top out of plywood. We stapled this down to prevent splinters and add a "cushy" feel.

This was recommended by a Home Depot employee as an outer protective packing wrap for shipping heavy items. It works great and has nice rigidity and cushion! I'm going to use it again to wrap, package and ship all types of items! See photos!

I recently purchased a portable air conditioner and there was a significant gap that released hot air back into the room I was trying to cool. This product along with some pink insulation protected my window sill from the rain and heat exchange into my room. It was easy to install for my needs and can be easily removed if needed.

Easy enough stuff to work with, but be advised, the "50 ft" is approximate. I wound up with 3 rolls that were 48'-49'6". wound up having to go back to the store when I was 6" short on the job.

In all honesty I used this to insulate a window air conditioner. It laid neatly and I sealed overlaps with packing tape, then the entire a/c with a plastic trash bag. This worked quite well the previous year, but for whatever reason, not as well this year. Would be great were there a product that insulates like a thicker item (the one made of recycled jeans) Only thinner for better handling. For those of you thinking "why not remove unit from window" ... it is too large, bulky, heavy for me to handle.
