How To Insulate A Sprinter Van
Cut three inch wide strips of insulation from your rolls. Tape (double sided tape) and glue (super metal sealant) the strips of insulation every two feet on roof and walls. The tape is designed for immediate adhesion. The glue will provide long-term adhesion. Glue and tape the insulation to the cut strips as shown in photo below. Tape insulation seams with reflective tape or use or 10M to avoid seam tape. Poof, you've created a sprinter van insulation kit.
The Best Sprinter Van Insulation
A sprinter van insulation system requires a Radiant barrier, Vapor Barrier, and Reflective Insulation because of the unique nature of the metal. The sun's rays on the metal surface creates unbearable heat inside the container in the summer. Cold winter temperatures are exaggerated by the metal sheeting making it frigid inside. Warm temperature on a cool metal creates sweating (condensation). Prodex Total serves a true vapor barrier and condensation eliminator. It has a high R-value and it prevents radiant heat transfer (primary source of heat-flow). It's superior to fiberglass batt as cargo van insulation because it is unaffected by humidity or water -- It doesn't mildew or promote fungus growth and it keeps the van cool in the summer - It is also much easier and less expensive to install. Prodex Total cargo van insulation is superior to double bubble insulation in vans because the heat from the metal skin doesn't cause its polyethylene micro-bubbles to collapse. With a pressure of 6 PSI Prodex compresses just 6%. When the load is relieved it takes back its initial shape. The density of the foam is between 1.25 lb/ft (sq) - 1.87 lb/ft (sq). This gives the material real body. Measuring performance

I have, in process, of restoring a 1963 camper, much like an Airstream. It was a pleasure to use, very workable. Thanks for a great product. Dan

I really enjoyed your product, it works well in my food truck that had no previous insulation. I found your product on an online search for metal building insulation. This stuff works wonders and I live in southern Arizona, I would recommend this product.
