" This is so much cheaper than elsewhere for the same stuff!
I've not fitted it yet, but I hear the best way is using a strong wallpaper paste solution. "

It does reflect
22 Oct 2014
By KennyG
, South Yorkshire
" Excellent product. I have a radiator backing onto an internal wall, the other side of the wall is the kitchen and always one of the cupboards was very warm. Using this product behind the radiator the heat is reflected back into my lounge and is definatly 2 degrees warmer by doing this.
It is now going to be placed on walls that are along external walls..go get some you will not be disappointed.
Kenny.

" I'm using it second time.
Good value for the money.
First time I used heavy duty double sided tape but it didn't stick properly either to the wall or the foil.
This time I'm planing to use some instant grab adhesive.

Radiator foil
12 Sep 2013
By Lincolnpiper
, Lincolnshire
" Bought this as I was renewing some radiators and I needed some radiator foil to go on the wall. The Foil is polystyrene backed and what appears to be a metallised Mylar film covering. The poly' backing will stop heat from conducting into the wall, and the metallised foil should reflect any heat and help improve conduction at the rear of the radiator. I used extra strong solvite to fix with no problems. And it was easy to cut. Will easily repay the outlay in savings. There are more expensive reflectors out there, but this type will work just as well at a greater saving. "

" Very easy to apply within seconds and you feel the difference straight away.
I used double sided tape, applied 3 strips vertical and 2 horizontal - so far so good and it holds.
Used a radiator roller to stick it on the wall.

Great replacement for old poly
15 Nov 2014
By GreatBroadcastingMate
, Pinner, London
" I used this to insulate on a North-facing bay window which had old polystyrene insulation that had started to break down under damaged wallpaper. This stuff went on a treat - I used slightly diluted PVA to attach it. Within 3 hours I lining papered over it and fixed a rad the next day when the paper had dried. Seems to work great, that wall is warmer already. Considering how thin the stuff is I'm impressed. "

Decent Value

" Works well, easy to fit, and is warm to the touch which surprised me. I would have liked it to have a thicker backing to the silver face hence the 4 stars. Length allows you to use behind a number of small to medium radiators. "

Easy to use
6 Sep 2013
By dhml

" Pretty much the correct width for a 500m high radiator.
I've read on other sites that the new polyethylene foam backing is difficult to stick to the wall (older types were polystyrene).
I used No-nonsense spray contact adhesive (32657) - spray it only on the wall, leave 30 seconds, and it's still just wet enough to be able to peel off and re-position it if you've not stuck it in the right place.
And that's that. Smooth it down, and it won't be peeling off.
Although this is a fairly thin insulation, it's likely to stop some of the heat going through an outside wall - especially important with older houses. "

Rad reflector

" Bought this product to try and help increase temperature in the rooms. Radaitors on external, so instead of losing heat, hope to help. To work with was simple, easy to cut, and easy to put on, using ready made wall paper paste. "
