Alucushion/Alububble® is a superior performance radiant barrier material, simple to use and cost effective.

Alucushion/Alububble® will not propagate fire and does not present a fire hazard when installed in a building. This product is FR (Fire retardant grade)

ALUBUBBLE®

Alububble is a type of insulation material that consists of a layer of bubble wrap sandwiched between layers of reflective foil. Here are some of the purposes for which alububble is commonly used:

  1. Thermal insulation: Alububble is an effective thermal insulation material due to its reflective surface, which reflects radiant heat back to its source. This helps to reduce heat transfer through walls, roofs, and other building components, thereby improving energy efficiency and indoor comfort.
  2. Moisture barrier: Alububble also acts as a moisture barrier, preventing the ingress of water and water vapor into the building envelope. This can help to prevent moisture-related problems such as mold growth, rot, and corrosion.
  3. Sound insulation: Alububble can also provide some degree of sound insulation by reducing the transmission of sound waves through walls and other building components.
  4. Easy to install: Alububble is lightweight and easy to install, making it a popular choice for DIY projects and small-scale insulation applications. It can be cut to size with scissors or a utility knife and attached to the desired surface with adhesive tape or staples.
  5. Cost-effective: Alububble is generally a cost-effective insulation material compared to other types of insulation, such as fiberglass or spray foam. It can provide significant energy savings at a relatively low cost.

Overall, alububble is a versatile insulation material that offers thermal insulation, moisture resistance, sound insulation, and ease of installation at a low cost. It is commonly used in residential and commercial construction applications, as well as in DIY projects and retrofitting applications.

Manufacturing Process

This product is manufactured using a modern sophisticated continuous laminating process which consists of a layer of low density Polyethylene air cells laminated on both sides with aluminium foil or alternatively on one side with a white polyethylene layer which provides an aesthetically pleasing finish to the underside.

Alucushion® / Alububble® FR (Fire retardant grade) is manufactured by a continuous lamination process of low density polyethylene and aluminium foil with sealed bubbles of air between the two outer laminates.

How does it work?

Alucushion/Alububble® uses the thermos principal of providing a reflective barrier along with adjacent air space to keep the building cool in summer and warm in winter.
The thousands of individually celled air bubbles created during the manufacturing process, form a column of immobilised dry air, effectively countering heat loss through convection and conduction. Add to this the low emissivity and high reflectivity of the aluminium foil surface, and it’s advantages as a heat transfer barrier become obvious.
