Alucushion Reflective Foil Insulations
Alucushion® FR (Fire retardant grade) White (Code 2906) , Black (Code 2906/ Black) and Alucushion® FR (Fire retardant grade) Double-sided (Code 1983).
Alucushion® FR (Fire retardant grade) is manufactured by a continuous lamination process of low density polyethylene and aluminium foil with sealed bubbles of air between the two outer laminates. The thousands of individually celled air bubbles created during the manufacturing process, form a column of immobilised dry air, effectively countering heat loss through convection and conduction. Add to this the low emissivity and high reflectivity of the aluminium foil surface, and it’s advantages as a heat transfer barrier become obvious.
Alucushion® FR (fire retardant grade) is the cost effective solution for most roof insulation applications, and has the following value added benefits:
Strong, light and flexible with excellent tear resistance
Heat stabilized for durability and effective in a temperature range from -20C° to 80°C.
Non-toxic, inert and vermin proof
waterproof – no membrane necessary under roof tiles or sheeting
Aesthetically pleasing finish with good light reflectance
Acknowledged by the trade as the easiest thermal insulation on the market to install
Properly installed under normal environmental conditions, Alucushion® FR will last the lifespan of the roof under which it has been installed. Alucushion FR is tested and evaluated according to SABS 1381 (Materials for Thermal Insulation of Buildings) Part 4: Reflective Foil laminates, rolls, sheets and sections.
