A 25 Year Old Roll of Reflectix Tape

This is just a note about a recent use of Reflectix tape. The unusual thing about it is that this tape is at least 25 years old, but still has the same (or nearly so) adhesiveness as when it was new! So I was able to use it for my purposes in 2021 just as […]

A Great New Application – Pouches for Artwork!

A Reflectix pouch is a great way to transport and store your framed artwork. I make the pouch by folding once (for the pouch) and again (for the flap) and affix double-sided velcro tabs. I seam the sides and the cut edges with Reflectix Foil Tape. I no longer worry about the sun shining through […]

A Foil Tape Fan!

I am a long time fan of your foil tape. My mom introduced it to me growing up, and it has often been a feature in many of our art projects. Because of COVID-19, I was sent home early from my freshman year of college to live back at home. While at home I started […]

Reflectix is FANTASTIC!

I am building a greenhouse and am using Reflectix on the north wall for insulating and for the reflection of the sun. I’ve used many products that do not perform as their companies say they do. BUT REFLECTIX IS FANTASTIC! I’M VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE EASE OF USE AND PERFORMANCE, AND THE TAPE IS A […]

Insulated Plant Room for Those Chilly Winter Months

My mom and I have lots of succulents & outdoor plants. Two years ago we made an indoor winter spot in my basement with grow lights, fans, and what else but Reflectix! Winter gets super cold in our area and if we left these outside they would all likely die. — Fawnia S., from Maugansville, […]

With Reflectix, I Can Camp in the Winter!

RV Applications

I am a full time RVer. I live in my 35 ft. Jayco camper year-round. I use Reflectix in the winter months to keep the warm air in and in the summer to keep the heat out. I used newspaper to make a pattern on all the windows in my RV. I cut the Reflectix […]

A Happy Camper!

I purchased a 24 inch roll of Reflectix from Home Depot last summer. I cut the material into a six foot length to fit under my foam self-inflating sleep pad and sleeping bag inside my backpacking tent. This past winter, and -10 degrees F, the Reflectix sheet kept me insulated from the frozen ground and […]

A New Application for Reflectix – WAY TO GO, ALEX!

Thought I’d try and bring a smile to your face. My son used one of your rolls for a class project. He was studying the Middle Ages and used the roll to make a suit of armour. If you ever need another idea for what these rolls can be used for it’s great for this. […]

Michigan Van Life

My husband and I live in our Econoline van, year round. We recently purchased a roll of the 100 foot Reflectix Insulation to see if we could stop some of the cold, Michigan, winter temps from freezing us as we sleep. I am happy to say IT WORKED WONDERS! Our old van is toasty warm. […]

If Grandma Can Do It…

My home was built in the 70’s. I’ve had trouble with the roof leaking. A friend helped me tear the ceiling down and fix it. I was familiar with your product and insisted on using it below the pink stuff. There was no arguing with me! I’m so happy with it. What a world of […]
