Roofing Insulation - Metal, Clay, Tile, Plastic and Shingle Roofs.
Prodex Total Roof Insulation = Insulation R-value 16 + Radiant Barrier + Vapor Barrier + Air Barrier All in One Product. One solution to Cold, Heat and Condensation - You'll be warm in winter, cool in summer and dry all the time.
Prodex Total Insulation - 5mm (0.2") closed cell polyethylene foam covered on both sides with .0012 inch (0.03mm) aluminum foil facing. Roll Sizes : Technical Brochure
New Prodex Total 10M - R22. Twice as thick as regular Prodex Total. 10mm (0.4") closed cell polyethylene foam covered on both sides with .0012 inch (0.03mm) aluminum foil facing.
Any metal building or pole barn that uses fiberglass insulation rather than Prodex Total will have moisture issues (typically hidden behind facing), Loss of R-value (consequence of the moisture) and heat gain.
Cold - Winter temperatures turn metal, clay, plastic and tile roofing cold. The cold transfers through to the inside of your building or home resulting in a higher heating bill.
Radiant Heat - Summer sun rays hitting the roof material radiates downward (inside). It can make it unbearably hot inside. Most roof materials magnify the heat of the summer.
Prodex reflects 97% of the radiant energy (primary source of heat flow) that strikes it. Each unit of radiant heat energy that is reflected away from your barn in the summer, and each unit that is reflected back during the winter, means less operation of your heating and air conditioning system - Less wear and tear on your equipment - Less money you pay in utility costs. Fiberglass and spray foam insulation do not prevent radiant heat transfer.
Condensation - It can seem like a tropical rain forest inside an unprotected metal, clay, tile or plastic roof. It's worse on those days where there is a greater contrast between temperatures at night vs. day. The morning sun hitting the cool roofing material can create a drip. When warm air comes in contact with the cool material, condensation occurs. A temperature difference between the outside and inside of your roofing material creates condensation - Similar to what happens when you have a cold can of beer outside on a hot day.
