EcoShield™ by yellowblue™ is designed to help enhance the performance of mass insulation by increasing the thermal efficiency without occupying or increasing space. It is a multi-layer insulation that offers you energy savings by reflecting radiant heat.
EcoShield™ multi-layer insulation employs two highly reflective surfaces to resist radiant heat transfer, a feature not offered by traditional mass insulation. These reflective surfaces are joined by a patented blanket type substance, developed by environmentally safe products.
EcoShield’s patented, non-toxic closed-cell air spaces help prevent conductive and convective heat transfer. By adding this technology between the two outer layers of aluminum design helps it also resistant to the transfer of conduction and convection heat.
The outer layers of EcoShield™ are 99% pure aluminum with a 5×5 scrim creating a tough outer shell of protection. 99% aluminum can stop up to 97% of radiant heat transfer.
EcoShield’s core layer includes high density recycled materials along with honeycomb, closed cell insulation technology. EcoShield’s center core is sandwiched between the outer layers of aluminum. This creates a compounding effect on the energy saving attic blanket insulation’s performance.
Perforations are engineered through EcoShield’s multiple layers of energy saving insulation to allow for breathability so moisture can pass through safely. This helps separate EcoShield™ from the competition because it helps stop the transfer of convection and conduction heat by working year around. EcoShield’s core has been through a baking process that allows for no flammable acceleration and is ASTM Tested.
The EcoShield reflective blanket, developed by Environmentally Safe Products, has a center core that is based on a patented, non-toxic, closed-cell honey comb technology that helps to prevent conductive and convective heat transfer in addition to the radiant heat benefits which can make homes more comfortable. In addition to all the reflective properties, our patented technologies can add an additional R-value to help better insulate your home.
PRODUCT CODES: 4PMPA, 4PMPA-SL, 24PMPA, 24PMPA-SL
PRODUCT DIMENSIONS & DESCRIPTION
Double sided scrimless aluminum foil laminated to 1/8” (nominal thickness) polyethylene foam perforated
WIDTH: 48” • LENGTH: 125’ • R-Value*: R-5.5 down R-2.3 up
PERM RATING: ASTM E-96: 5.18 or 51.55 grams/ (day-m²) (based on single sided house-wrap)
CRITICAL RADIANT FLUX: ASTM E-970.07: > .12 kW/m²

R means resistance to heat flow.
The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power.
To get the marked R-Value, EcoShield™ installs this insulation by a trained professional.
Like a radiant barrier, EcoShield™ products block 97% of radiant heat.
Do not set EcoSheild directly on wet or uncured concrete
Do not allow EcoSheild to become damp or wet while rolled in sealed bag
Aluminum is an electrical conductor. Please use caution when working around electrical sources including overhead power lines. Carefully inspect electrical junction boxes and check for frayed wires before beginning installation
