AstroShield, an improved version of the product previously known as Astro Foil insulation, is an easy-to-install line of reflective insulation used for a variety of construction applications. AstroShield, an environmentally safe and non-toxic product, features a Polyethylene bubble sandwiched between two protective sheets, one or both of which are composed of a strong metalized polyester film.
This combination provides an insulating surface that uses reflective technology to block up to 95% of radiant heat. Installing AstroShield properly can dramatically increase the thermal performance and energy efficiency of your space. Astroshield aims to keep energy costs lower and interior spaces more comfortable. See our product line listed below.
Why choose reflective?
Traditional insulation methods do not reflect radiant heat away. AstroShield, like a radiant barrier, is a highly effective blockade to the transfer of radiant heat.
AstroShield reflective insulation is easy to use and safe for the health of your installers.
Mass insulations like fiberglass, cellulose and foam merely slow down the transfer of conductive heat by absorbing it. The middle bubble layers of AstroShield work in a similar way to provide a thermal barrier against conductive heat transfer, while also providing added strength to the material’s structure.
