Northwestern Ohio Foam Products Inc.: Radiant Barrier and Vapor Retarder
February 26, 2007
MicroLT is a high-performance, reflective foil radiant barrier and vapor retarder, designed to reflect radiant energy and retard moisture migration in a building. According to the manufacturer, the core of the product is made of flexible, two-ply, 1/8-inch-thick polypropylene foam that provides excellent insulation characteristics. This core has state-of-the-art pure aluminum foil film laminated to both sides. The aluminum foil films provide high reflectance radiant barrier properties and vapor retarding performance specifications. The barrier is a lightweight, energy-saving material that can contribute to building green buildings by reducing the energy consumption of the building envelope. The MicroLT reduces the radiant heat gain of the sun under metal roofs into the building envelope when used in conjunction with a minimum 3/4-inch airspace.
