A barrier from the elements

Northwestern Ohio Foam Products, which manufactures high-performance insulation materials and building products, has released MicroLT, a cost-effective, high-performance reflective foil radiant barrier and vapor retarder that is designed to reflect radiant energy and retard moisture migration in a building. The core of the product is made of flexible two-ply polypropylene foam that provides excellent insulation characteristics. This unique core has state-of-theart pure aluminum foil film laminated to both sides. The aluminum foil films provide the high-reflectance radiant barrier properties, the vapor-retarding performance specifications, and the superior physical attributes of this new product. MicroLT can reduce the radiant heat gain of the sun under metal roofs by reflecting up to 97 percent of the radiant energy, reducing the energy consumption of the building envelope. It’s tear-proof, moisture-proof, bug-proof and nontoxic, and it can be used for retrofits as well as both commercial and industrial jobs. In addition, 1/8-inch MicroLT and 1⁄4-inch MicroFoil can be used in any application that requires insulation and a vapor retarder. ? (800) 339-4850 ? www.thebarrier.com ? www.nofp.com
