Unlike fiberglass insulation, Prodex Total is unaffected by humidity or water and it doesn't mildew or promote fungus growth. Unlike Bubble Insulation, Prodex doesn't lose R value over time. Prodex seals once its fastened, screwed or stapled. The polyethylene micro-bubbles do not collapse with temperature changes.

Prodex Total 48 Inch Insulation combines the benefits of reflective insulation, (R value 15.67), radiant barrier and vapor barrier. That means you'll have a cool, dry structure in summer and a warm, dry structure in winter. It is used as a stand-alone or supplemental insulation. Applications include homes, pole barns, metal buildings, attics, garages, roofs, basements, crawlspaces, under concrete, radiant floors and more. It is ICC-ES Recognized, ENERGY STAR qualified and is eligible for the 2011 Tax Credit. It reflects 97% of radiant heat (the primary source of heat flow). Prodex works well in HOT and COLD climates. Other benefits of Prodex include sound deadening and easy installation. Reflective aluminum foil on each side of a 5mm closed-cell polyethylene foam center.

A pole barn or metal building insulation system requires a reflective insulation, radiant barrier and vapor barrier. The metal skin causes sweating (condensation), unbearable heat in summer and frigid temperatures in winter. Prodex serves a true vapor barrier and condensation eliminator. It has a high r-value and it's the number one performing radiant heat barrier. It is superior to fiberglass batt in metal buildings and pole barns because it is unaffected by humidity or water -- It doesn't mildew or promote fungus growth and it adds a radiant barrier to keep the building cool in the summer -- It doesn't promote nesting for rodents, bugs and birds. It is also much easier and less expensive to install. It is superior to double bubble insulation in metal buildings because the heat of the metal skin doesn't cause its polyethylene micro-bubbles to collapse.
