Re: Possible alternative to Reflectix?

Yes So long as the inner layer is reflective, and not touching anything. Equally as effective as non-bubble wrap/foam/non-bubble wrap.
I would like to find a way to test these combinations, it could be invaluable. But surface temperature on the backside won't tell the whole story, so I"m not sure how to test.

Re: Possible alternative to Reflectix?

I don't see that it makes any difference if the inner layer is touching anything - besides that is impractical.
