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 type 4 flame retardant aluminum insulation is a three layer product, composed or two sheets of flame resistant Kraft paper, each faced on one side with aluminum foil, and one of aluminum foil without paper backing.

A higher insulation value and a more pleasing appearance will be achieved by adding Superior Factory Type 2 flame retardant cap sheet face stapled to the bottom of the rafters.

INSTALLATION
Grasp blanket by flange with printed side down, position blanket flush against perlin/plate at end of bay, leave gap " to 1" between bottom of flange and face of rafter/truss (when installed between 2"x 4" roof rafters install from face of rafter), begin stapling material approx. 6" o.c. for full length of blanket. Hand held stapler is suggested with a minimum of
3/8" staple.
Grasp free flange and pull it taut towards the rafter/truss on right. Line bottom of flange up even with bottom of facing of rafter/truss. Be sure material is pulled over evenly to prevent cross buckles and wrinkles. Finish by stapling full length approx. 6" o.c.

WARNING
Do not insulate under a wet deck. Insulating under a wet roof may cause condensation and damage the insulation.

NOTE
All Superior Aluminum Insulation products incorporate the use or a special flame resistant paper manufactured to meet the National Bureau of Standards Voluntary Standard PS 46-71 for flame resistant paper.  We use a water base non-flammable adhesive to bond the aluminum to the flame resistant paper.
When tested by the ASTM E-84 flame spread test, all Superior products have achieved a flame spread of 25 or less.
Superior Aluminum Insulation products meet the State of California Quality Standards.
