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.

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 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.
