• Make sure all metal joints, seams and penetrations are sealed.
• In order to obtain the R-6, a 3/4” air space (spacer strip) is required between the Reflectix® Reflective/Bubble/Bubble/Reflective product and the duct surface. A spacer strip can be created by cutting Reflectix® into 2” wide strips and double wrapping (the strips) around the circumference of the duct every 24”.
• Verify the circumference of the duct at the mid-point of a spacer strip.
• Cut the Reflectix® product to this length plus 1”.
• Wrap the product around the duct and securely tape the linear and circumference seams (overlapping 1”) with UL181 approved HVAC foil tape (goal is an air-tight, snug seam seal).
• Do not leave any exposed duct or space where air can enter between the duct and the Reflectix®.
