Astro-Shield Reflective Insulation


AstroShield, an improved version of the product previously known as Astro Foil, is a line of reflective insulation products featuring polyethylene bubble film sandwiched between two protective sheets of strong metalized aluminum polyester film. This metalized aluminum film provides a reflective surface that blocks 94 percent of radiant heat, unlike fiberglass, foam or cellulose insulation, which absorb heat. When materials absorb heat, they merely slow down its transfer. AstroShield can dramatically improve thermal performance and energy efficiency, keeping energy costs lower and interior spaces more comfortable.
