It will work but it is felt like material and will absorb water from condensation when you run the A/C. You would be better off using fiberglass. The best would be thin styrofoam panels with a reflective layer on the outside. A few screws and the metal foil tape and you are done.

Insulating barn ceiling?

It would be wise to contact Home Depot to accertain what the actual R Value rating is for this product. I use it for sound deadening and some insulation value. Depending on your location should be helpful in your decision of application. Looking for straight insulation, not so much for Alaska, Florida maybe. You may also consider styrofoam sheathing in different density and thickness cut to apply snuggly between trusses/rafters.

Is it possible to use this to insulate behind and on both sides of a wall recessed heat radiators for a home?

Asked by Paulsts July 17, 2020

Answer

Dear Paul: This product will provide almost no benefit -- just R-1.4, because it is so thin. If your heat radiator is steam or water based (NOT ELECTRIC) then polyisocyanurate foam board is the best option, available from Home Depot in 1/" to 2" thicknesses. Install the thickest possible piece on each side. You can use foam board-compatible glue to hold them in place. See: Locktite PL300 Model # 1421941, Home Depot Internet #202020476, UPC Code # 079340686502 Store SKU #780400 If your radiators are installed on an external wall, the most important space is the back side. In-wall recessed hydronic radiators were often installed with zero insulation. This means that the radiator is 'fighting' the cold outside all winter long, and you are paying the bill for the battle. You can probably cobble together a solid piece in the back, pushing one small piece after another under or over the radiator. I hope this is helpful. Mark

Does this keep the heat in when it’s cold, cool air in when it’s hot? Is it nontoxic?

Asked by millie May 30, 2020

Answers

Yes it does. Foil on the outside. The kitties will probably scratch it up so you may want to put something around it like plexiglass. I don't think it would be something they may eat, and I don't think it is toxic, it's like carpet padding.

can this be used foil side facing in a sauna? is there off gassing? what temp is it rated to?

Asked by Dave May 17, 2020

Answer

Dear Dave: I have a Finn background and am familiar with saunas. In short, the answer is 'No' for Ultratouch. First, it is so thin than it delivers very little insulation -- just R-1.4. Second, the backing is cotton which will absorb and hold moisture, which will lead to rot and mold. The best insulation for a sauna is rock wool, which delivers R-4.1 per inch of thickness, is fire resistant and does not absorb moisture. The walls, ceiling and floor bays should all be filled with rock wool, then covered with paneling made from Scandinavian or Canadian spruce, aspen or cedar, because they do not contain much resin. Use stainless steel fasteners. No metal fasteners should be exposed on the surface. Home Depot carries all of these products. You will need to order the tongue-and-groove paneling in particular wood species from your Home Depot Customer Service or Pro Desk. They carry a much wider range of building products than what is displayed on retail store shelves, and will delivery quickly to your store or home / job site. I hope this is helpf, and best of luck with your sauna project! Kiitos Mark

I don't have other experience to compare this product with other brand but it delivered a great job. I bought it to setup a cooling system for my mining rig i covered my shelve with this and hooked a ventilation fan to suck the heated air out. This is very nice and thick it provided lots of insulation which cooled down my garage so efficiently. You get so much of this i still have lots of excess material to use on another project. I would definitely buy again as needed.

I wanted to get the electricity bill lower by cutting so much of the heat in the attic. This product has good reviews and was in the price range I wanted. It works as good if not better than expected. For the DIY people, be sure to get an electric staple gun. it makes the job so much easier. I did have to take my time in cutting the amount needed. next time I'm ordering to size needed.

I ordered this and the 24' roll. They are both easy to work with, basically feels like jeans, no itch. The smaller 48"x6' that i received was much more dense to the feel, by 50%. Don't know if that was a fluke or not. I got this in an attempt to keep noise down from a basement room via the ductwork. It seems to work reasonably well for that, maybe a 4/10. Thicker is the better of the two. But thermally it's hard to tell the difference. Both are the same result. If say 9/10. It's medium duty grade IMO. It's old pants and foil after all. But did it's intended job admirably with a little sound muffling as a bonus.

I purchased this to use as a sound dampener in a basement room, to try and keep some sound from traveling to the upper floors, via the heat duct and cold air return. It seems to have worked fairly well for that purpose, does it's job as thermal insulation just as well. I also purchased the smaller 6 foot long roll as well, this was significantly more dense than the large 24 foot roll (see pics). But overall this is a good product that seems to do what it's intended to do. It was very easy to cut and fit where I needed it. It is easy to handle and affixes with simple metal duct tape. It's old blue jeans, so there is no itch at all. It's kind of interesting to look at as well. My only negative was the significant difference in the density of the two rolls of the "same" product. But it hasn't seemed to affect its intended purpose of thermal insulating. I was hoping to achieve an outcome outside of its intended purpose. That's where the density difference was less than ideal for me. Otherwise it's solid and i would recomend it.

Used it to line a car trunk. Placed fiber side down and pieced together with foil HVAC tape. Cuts easy with scissors, helps prevent items in trunk from sliding around or making noise. Not really the purpose of a radiant barrier but an inexpensive solution. This product looks close to the OEM automotive insulation, expect it to perform about the same but will check once and a while for moisture absorption or premature failure.
