APPLICATIONS

Aluminum Foil – Radiant Barrier / Reflective Insulation

The uses of Foil Laminate products are many, but the reason for their use is singular.

  • To provide thermal insulation
  • A barrier against radiant heat and vapour

Uncontrolled flow of thermal energy can be costly and damaging. However, by utilising a radiant barrier the following example situations can be managed.

  • Reducing cooling cost through effective heat reflection
  • Maintaining the desired internal temperature during winter
  • Increasing the efficiency of air-ducting insulation systems
  • Insulation of piping against extreme heat transfer
  • Protecting goods from extreme temperature and humidity fluctuation

 

Foil Laminate Industries products act as a Radiant Barrier / Reflective Insulation against CONDUCTION, CONVECTION and RADIATION of heat.
CONDUCTION

Heat transferred through solid materials from a warmer medium to a cooler medium.

CONVECTION

Heat transfer via the movement of molecules within fluids.
(Liquid and Air)

HEAT RADIATION

The emitting of electromagnetic waves from warmer objects to the surrounding area.

Building and Roofing Insulation

Foil Laminate Industries products and solutions are environmentally sensitive and support the drive towards ‘Green Building’.

THERMSHIELD Thermal Protection Products

Thermal protection is essential for many applications, particularly in manufacturing work in progress material storage, transportation of goods on land/sea and stockpile storage that requires protection from environmental factors such as heat, wind, rain, and dust. Our THERMSHIELD products minimize temperature fluctuations and in return maintains the quality and value of goods which could potentially be discarded as a result of exposure to extreme temperatures and humidity fluctuations.

Pallet Cover (PC) / Insulating Blanket (IB) provides exceptional protection from thermal challenges and cushions products as an added advantage. This is especially important for perishable and temperature sensitive products. Our covers are ideal for maintaining a consistent temperature during storage and transportation.

An Emergency Rescue Blanket (ERB) is an especially low-weight, low-bulk blanket made of heat-reflective, thin, and metallized aluminium film. Silver in colour, it reflects more than 95% of radiated heat. The blanket is designed to retain warmth, and is both water resistant and windproof.

Medi Shield Adult (MSA) high protection blanket is a cost effective, single use absorbent thermal wrap used in hospitals and by paramedics for the treatment and prevention of hypothermia and passive patient warming.

Medi Shield Baby (MSB) blanket is a single use thermal wrap for babies and infants. Its function is to maintain baby’s body heat whilst providing a barrier against bacteria. It is thermally retentive and prevents convective, evaporative, conductive and radiant heat loss. No fasteners or straps are required for ease of use.

WARN-U Underground Warning Tape (UWT) is a unique product that has been specifically designed to provide detection and protection to many industry sectors including excavation, construction, utility companies, electrical, telecommunication, oil & gas, and water pipeline industries. It helps prevent accidental damage to buried utilities that could cause major disruptions and monetary loss.
