Fi-Foil Co. has independently verified the recycled content of its reflective insulation and radiant barriers for project teams seeking certification under a green-building rating system.
The pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled material content of several Fi-Foil products was completed for the July 1 to Sept. 20, 2012, by R&D Services Inc., a third-party testing and inspection service operating in compliance with ISO 17025 (Lab Code 200265-0) and ISO 17020 (AA-712).
Verified Products include AA2 Vapor Shield and VR Plus Shield (16- and 24-inch widths) and Silver Shield Radiant Barrier (16-, 24-, 30-inch widths). The percentages of pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content are posted on Fi-foil’s website under Fi-Foil Product’s Recycled Content Report.
“The product verifications are based on the recycled content of the components used to produce each product and the confirmation of a balance between incoming materials and manufactured items,” says David W. Yarbrough, Ph.D., P.E., with R&D Services Inc.
AA2 Vapor Shield and VR Plus Shield reflective insulation are utilized in masonry or frame wall applications. Silver Shield Radiant Barrier is utilized in attic and knee wall applications. The three products provide cost-effective energy-efficiency upgrades to new and existing structures.
