Re: Packing foam for insulation?
I've got a pad I got in the UK that's made out of similar
stuff. I don't remember the brand but it's basically that foam
padding with a layer of space blanket material laminated to both
sides. It's similar to the windshield reflectors that folks have
been using for quite a while.
I use a lot of the packing foam like this at work. I think it
would be a good insulator but I would question its durability. It
also rubs against itself and builds up a nice static charge. Then
every piece of lint or dirt around sticks to it.
Hmmmm, what about bubble wrap......;-)
