NOFP’s Solex is a cost effective, high-performance reflective foil radiant barrier and vapor retarder, designed to reflect radiant energy and retard moisture migration in a building. The core of Solex LT is 1/8″ thick while Solex comes standard at 1/4″ providing additional insulation value and durability. Both Solex LT and Solex are available in multiple facing combinations which are thermally bonded in a unique process that provides a long-term quality finish. This unique core has state-of-the-art reflective polymeric film laminated to both sides.
Solex reduces the radiant heat gain of the sun under roofs into the building envelope when used in conjunction with a minimum of 3/4” airspace. Installed in this manner, Solex can reflect up to 97% of the radiant energy thereby reducing the heat buildup/loss as compared to a non-insulated metal building. Solex’s lightweight, easy to use, and energy saving material helps reduce the energy consumption of your building enclosure. It is tear-resistant, moisture-proof, bug-resistant, and uses non-toxic materials that can be safely installed without the use of protective clothing. All that is needed for installation is a utility knife, tape, and safety glasses.
The Solex and SolexLT range of products can be used for new construction as well as retrofit in a variety of applications, such as post frame, horse, dairy or livestock buildings. It can be used for finished walls, building insulation, condensation control, and as a thermal break and vapor barrier. Solex and SolexLT can be perforated for applications where a vapor barrier is not needed such as behind siding or in an attic.
