Space Blankets vs Reflectix

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know the difference (if any) from space blankets vs reflectix for insulation?

Thanks

Depends on definition of space blanket.

Most I have seen are basically a layer or two of mylar.


Reflectix is a layer or two of bubble wrap sandwiched between foil sheets. The air trapped in the bubble wrap provides much better insulation.



Regards,

JD
