Superior Radiant Insulation - Type 2 Silver Foil Capsheet

SUPERIOR FACTORY TYPE 2
ALUMINUM REFLECTIVE INSULATION

THERMAL PERFORMANCE
DATA 2 X 6:

Resistance Factor for Reflective Insulation Systems only

DOWN

R-12

UP

R-4.5

Installed Resistance Factor
Air to Air

DOWN

R-13

UP

R-5.9


Values shown are from ASTM C-236 guarded hot box test performed by a NVLAP accredited and State of California approved laboratory, and test data from ASHRAE fundamentals handbook. All R values for heat flow include 1.32 R for still air, and all R values for heat flow down includes 4.55 R still air.

MATERIAL
Superior Factory Type 2 aluminum reflective insulation is composed of 100LB. Kraft paper faced on both sides with aluminum foil. During the lamination process a heavy application of flame retardant adhesive is applied to both sides of the Kraft paper to make it flame resistant and achieve a low flame spread.

Superior Factory Type 2 is available with white on exposed facing.
Superior Factory Type 2 aluminum reflective insulation also has the following advantages:

  • Low in cost
  • Covers all roof rafters to give a simi-finished ceiling that never needs paint.
  • Increases light reflectivity, thereby decreasing the amount of light needed.
  • Is especially beneficial in an exposed rafter application in industrial and commercial
    buildings. When installed exposed below unfaced mineral fiber blanket insulation
    or multiple layer aluminum insulation , additional insulation value is achieved
    (see ASHREA guide for reflective insulation values). When tested for vapor trans-
    mission as per ASTM E 96 procedure B, the following results were achieved:
    WVT=).22 gm/M2.24 hr. performance = 0.22 perms, which meets CEC and
    UBC regulations.

RECOMMENDED METHOD OF SPECIFYING
Superior Factory Type2 aluminum insulation shall be installed only by qualified mechanics.

INSTALLATION
Face staple Superior Factory Type 2 to bottom of rafters, staples to be approximately 6" o.c. Material shall be installed as a single sheet the full length of the rafters and turned down approximately 1" at ends where possible, and stapled to both the perlin or main rafter support. Ends shall be neatly trimmed.

WARNING
Do not install insulation under a roof that is not dry. Insulating a wet roof may cause condensation and damage to insulation and roof deck.

NOTE
When tested by the ASTM E 84 Flame Spread Test the following results were achieved:
                         Flame Spread  5           Smoke Developed 15

Superior Aluminum Insulation products are state certified and meet the State of California Quality Standards.
