EVERY BUILDING, RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL, SUFFERS FROM SIGNIFICANT HEAT LOSS
This is caused by 4 main phenomena :
• Phase changes
HEAT LOSS IN THE HOME
ITR® insulation provides the best year-round protection against all four modes of heat loss.
ITR® insulation is specially designed to:
• Effectively combat heat transfer
• Reduce heat loss
• Block solar radiation
• Minimise condensation issues
ITR® insulation solutions have been designed on the basis of thermo-reflection, a space industry-developed concept that has been applied in space research for decades.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THERMO-REFLECTION
Thermo-reflection is the capacity to reflect heat or cold in its wave state. The heat of the Sun, for example, is propagated through electromagnetic waves via « thermal radiation ». Waves are absorbed or reflected depending on the surface with which they make contact
Unlike bulky insulation products that work by absorption, ITR® insulation solutions reflect waves and function as a barrier against heat and cold.
The greater the amount of radiation reflected, the lower the level of heat transfer. At around 95% reflectivity, metallised films are some of the best thermo-reflective insulators available today..
