Reflective Insulation (R value 15.67), Vapor barrier and Radiant barrier.  This insulation product reduces heating and cooling costs. Reflective aluminum foil on each side of a 5mm (1/4 inch) closed-cell polyethylene foam center. Ideal for hot and cold climates. Read customer reviews to left on page.

Unlike fiberglass insulation, Prodex Total contains no itchy fibers to breathe or cause skin irritation.   Unlike fiberglass insulation, Prodex Total is unaffected by humidity or water and it doesn't mildew or promote fungus growth. Unlike Bubble Insulation, Prodex doesn't lose R value over time. Prodex seals once its fastened, screwed or stapled. The polyethylene micro-bubbles do not collapse with temperature changes.

Prodex for cold and hot

Prodex Total 48 Inch Insulation combines the benefits of reflective insulation, (R value 15.67), radiant barrier and vapor barrier. That means you'll have a cool, dry structure in summer and a warm, dry structure in winter. It is used as a stand-alone or supplemental insulation. Applications include homes, pole barns, metal buildings, attics, garages, roofs, basements, crawlspaces, under concrete, radiant floors and more. It is ICC-ES Recognized, ENERGY STAR qualified and is eligible for the 2009-2010 Tax Credit. It reflects 97% of radiant heat (the primary source of heat flow). Prodex works well in HOT and COLD climates. Other benefits of Prodex include sound deadening and easy installation. Reflective aluminum foil on each side of a 5mm closed-cell polyethylene foam center.

A metal building insulation system requires a reflective insulation, radiant barrier and vapor barrier. The metal skin causes sweating (condensation), unbearable heat in summer and frigid temperatures in winter. Prodex serves a true vapor barrier and condensation eliminator. It has a high r-value and it's the number one performing radiant heat barrier. It is superior to fiberglass batt in metal buildings and pole barns because it is unaffected by humidity or water, it doesn't mildew or promote fungus growth and it adds a radiant barrier to keep the building cool in the summer. It is also much easier and less expensive to install. It is superior to double bubble insulation in metal buildings because the heat of the metal skin doesn't cause its polyethylene micro-bubbles to collapse.

Reflective insulation is the most effective when airspace exists between the insulation and the adjacent material. The R value of the system will vary dependent on the airspace size and the direction of the heat flow, and the conductive and convective properties of surrounding materials. We are not able to expand on the Characteristics, Values or Regulations shown in above chart. All pertinent technical information available is posted above. Please consult your local code official if concerned with an approval.

Prodex Seals: Mechanical characteristics/physical proof below:

  • High compression recuperation. It takes back 97% of its form after applying a load of 11 PSI (It does not collapse).
  • Low compression creep, 0.2 PSI, 168 hours, 6% deformation.
  • High yield point, elastic material

Prodex Elasticity

  • 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 s between 1.25 lb/ft (sq) - 1.87 lb/ft (sq). This gives the material real body.
